"Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly."
- The Beatles
"While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, as of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door."
- Edgar Allen Poe
Because of their handmade nature, the colors and details will vary on each blanket (scroll down for more info).
Remember your favorite blanket as a child?
The one that you took everywhere, the one that made you feel safe, and the one that smelled like every memory you've ever had?
You're a grown-up now.
And this is your new Adventure Binky.
Yoga Blanket. Beach Blanket. Picnic Blanket. Camping Blanket. Life Blanket.
From music festivals to romantic nights under the stars, and from the back of your truck to the edge of the Grand Canyon - the Blackbird Adventure Blanket from Trek Light Gear is your new best friend.
This midweight blanket is soft to the touch to keep you warm and cozy on cold nights and still plenty big enough to share with a friend.
It all begins with clothing.
Every blanket is made from excess clothing materials - first, shredded into a pulp, and then repurposed into yarn.
By repurposing high-quality materials and preventing them from ending up in the landfill, we're able to minimize our environmental impact and create less waste for our planet.
So, that's the material, but what about the process?
Every blanket is handwoven in Mexico on a traditional wooden pedal loom by Indigenous artisans continuing a long tradition of craftsmanship and creativity.
The best things aren't made in factories. And that's why our artisans also continue the tradition of home weaving - allowing them to determine their own hours, wages, and workload.
Each blanket is intentionally a unique creation - the bird colors will vary in every blanket and other details like the fringe thread colors, stripes, and even the hue of the main blanket color may be different than what's pictured.
Every blanket is beautiful in its uniqueness so you should feel comfortable that you'll get a blanket you'll be happy with - but if you have any questions about this please feel free to contact us before you order!
I purchased close to 10 blankets. Awesome company, but most of all..amazing materials and craftsmanship. Keep up the great work on producing the wonderful blankets.
So happy and impressed with this version of the blanket the Blackbird is an amazing truck blanket. I couldn’t be more happy this is an awesome looking feeling blanket that as said before will up your snuggle game wether at a drive in, a mountain sunset, or on the ocean. The color and look are pure western joy. Would buy again in a heartbeat if you got a Jeep get this blanket
Overall this is a relatively soft and durable blanket. The only problem I have is that the blanket I received doesn’t have th on the website. The website shows a dark grey with red and bright blue birds. The blanket I got is light grey with dull white, turquoise and faded lavender birds. Oh well
Love design, color and weight of this blanket. We use them to help give our glamping tents an extra bit of style and more importantly to keep our guests warm at night in their bed or around the campfire. The blankets are durable and versatile enough for camping or at home. Plus, the customer service is out of this world.
