Blackbird Blanket

"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).

Made Ethically & Sustainably By Indigenous Artisans

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.
