Cairo Throw

The original emoji, Cairo was a typeface designed by Susan Kare in 1984 for the first Macintosh operating system. Taking it's name from the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt, each symbol was drawn by hand using the bitmap grid. A few notable symbols   lived on into later operating systems including the cursor and watch. 

Kare designed this woven blanket for Jacquard loom, an early example of computer controlled machinery, operated with punch cards and invented by Joseph Jacquard in 1801.
