Double-sided thread and enamel
Giles Round & Casa Estudio Souvenirs embroidered key chain with their signature metal charm is part of a newly commissioned series of merchandise exclusive to Aspen Art Museum that takes inspiration from the trademarks of Pop Art. Its bold and catchy slogan plays with recognizability and mundanity, nodding to popular culture items' immediate, witty, and gimmicky nature. These keychains are a must-have for Aspen visitors, locals, and distant fans. The image shows both sides of the same key chain.
