What's a Blankestry?
It's a a functional piece of handwoven blanket wall art that can be hung as a 3' x 3' tapestry or used in a variety of ways
Made from 100% Recycled Clothing Material!
Handwoven & One-Of-A-Kind
Every Blankestry is handwoven on a traditional loom and uniquely one-of-a-kind
Each Blankestry is ethically made by Mexican artisans carrying on centuries of skill & tradition
The Blankestry: Functional Blanket Art
From the day we first launched our line of handwoven throw blankets, we started hearing the question:
"It's so beautiful, can I hang a blanket on my wall like a tapestry?"
Of course you can, wall blankets are awesome! You can hang any of our full-size handwoven blankets on your wall and use them as functional art.
But finding that much empty wall space isn't always an option. So we created The Blankestry and boy does it really tie the room together, Lebowski.
For Your Wall, For Your Life
A Blankestry is designed to be wall art - but, like most Trek Light Gear products, the adventure is up to you.
We've already heard from customers who have used their Blankestry to decorate their campsite, to add an accent to a table, dresser, or chair, and even to add a blast of style to their pet's favorite lie-down spot.
Of course, you can still use your Blankestry to get cozy like any other blanket - but it is small! Think of it as a lap blanket, a shoulder wrap, or a shawl.
If you're looking to wrap yourself up and get cozy, you'll definitely want to grab one of our full-size throw blankets.

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!).

I have the smaller blanket and a large one. The smaller blanket hangs on the wall over the couch because is actually art and another blanket (comet) on our couch. They work stunningly well together. They're wonderful, quality blankets and their tee shirts are nice also. I definitely recommend this company. Be well.
Bought this for our van to 1) make it look more homey 2) protect the seat from our sweet dog with vicious claws. It's perfect. It's lightweight enough that washing is easy, and it's stiff enough that it stays in place. We want several more.
Trek Light Gear never fails to amaze me with the quality of their products. This is an incredible community I absolutely love to support. I use “community” intentionally and very specifically because that is what they cultivate with every item they sell. Each piece is unique and different. And they’re all about paying it forward, practicing kindness, and are mindful of our environment. I could go on and on. This tapestry is perfect for over my bed but could easily be displayed over the back of a couch or at a fancy angle over your favorite chair. Or a cute lil picnic blanket for the kiddos. Thanks TLG for another incredible product.
This “little blanket” is just as beautiful as the larger ones (yes, I have many!) TrekLight is a great company for their selection and customer service.
What a beautiful blanket. The colors are amazing. It is handwoven. I can't decide if I should display it on the wall or use it for those chilly nights.
