A Uniquely Handmade Item
These aren't machine-made clones - every Trek Light Blanket is woven by hand on a traditional handloom. The artistry of the weaver is in every piece, and that truly means that every blanket made and sold is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art.
That means you should expect variances!
As a handmade and handwoven blanket, there may be variances in the blanket design details and, since we source our yarn from 100% recycled materials, the blanket colors may even vary slightly from what's pictured.
Imperfections and variances are exactly what makes handwoven art special (just like you)!
Imperfections (Are Beautiful)
Due to their handwoven nature, our blankets may have some stray, loose, or pop-out threads, even when they're brand new. They're not a sign that your blanket is going to fall apart - and they're all carefully inspected and tied off where necessary to make sure your blanket is made to last.
These little artifacts are meant to be appreciated and are intentionally left intact by the weavers. It's what gives handwoven blankets their character and sets them apart from machined textiles!
How It's Made
How It's Made
Made With 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Materials
It all begins with clothing.
Every blanket is made from excess clothing materials that otherwise would end up in the landfill - first, they're shredded into a pulp and then they're upcycled 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.
Handwoven By Mexican Artisans
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 many of our artisans also continue the tradition of home weaving - allowing them to determine their own hours, wages, and workload.
For the absolute best results, we recommend dry cleaning the blankets as it will always be the safest and most gentle process for them.
But, we're also big fans of this Mitch Hedberg line:
"This shirt is dry clean only. Which means... it's dirty."
We get it, it can be a deterrent if your favorite blanket is the one thing that forces you to have to make a trip to the dry cleaners. Especially when you use it every day like you should.
Which is exactly why we made sure that all of our blankets are washer-friendly! Just do it with love.
If you do wash at home - do it on a cold, delicate cycle and then either hang the blanket to air dry or tumble dry on the lowest heat and tumble setting (again, delicate is the way!).

This is my second Trek Light blanket. I love the rich grey. I love these blankets because they are made with recycled content, wash well, and are so pet friendly! I have three!
My husband and I love these blankets! The pattens and colors are lovely and the quality is great.
I ordered this blanket with the “pay what you can” promotion. What a great thing to offer as a company! I received it very quickly and now I think I’m going to have to order another one because my wife fell in love with this one!
great blanket and wonderful service. This has been a great addition and has already been used in Fort building, monsoon watching and pandemic/stay at home binge watching.
The only con I have is that I will have to buy three more because its become the grab first blanket.
My husband and I used to “fight” over the only larger blanket we have on the couch. It was a ratty blanket that had a logo on it. One day I walked into the room and realized with assorted colored blankets scattered on the couch it just looked messy. So I decided to get the same color blankets to make my room look more put together and the new blankets had to be long enough when we laid on the couch. It took me awhile but then I found these blankets. I am very happy with my purchase. Room looks much more put together and no “fighting” over blankets anymore for hubby and me. 😀
