The term Golden Age has a number of meanings, but they all share one caveat in common: "By definition, the Golden Age is always in the past."
Well, we optimistically disagree. Who's ready to bring on a new Golden Age with us?
"The age of miracles
The age of sound
Well there's a Golden Age
Coming round, coming round, coming round!"

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 Golden Age 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 a unique creation - the fish 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. Imperfections and variances are part of what makes handwoven art special (just like you)!
Blankets that feature curved or circular designs will typically have a small amount of spacing around the curved transitions. The looser threads around the curves are a normal part of the traditional weaving process and they do not affect the integrity of your blanket. If you don't like the way it looks, you can easily just push the threads closer together with your fingers and the gap will magically disappear!
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!

Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change.
Trees For The Future uses a Forest Garden approach to reforestation - planting trees to not only provide environmental benefits, but also food, income, and community agriculture where it's needed most.

Beautiful. I’m very happy with it and appreciate the
Quality, design, and this company’s mission.
Ordered this blanket after falling in love with the photos online. Received it and the blanket is not the nice creamy marigold you see in the photos, it’s actually a bright mustard. It’s not an awful color but it’s not what we expected. Also, the fish (we know they’re different with every order) were periwinkle and red which just did not work well with the mustard color. It’s still a very hefty and well made blanket. We will be using it more of an outside blanket then inside decor. Would try again in hopes of getting better colors next time.
The blanket was a perfect gift for my daughter and her husband. They immediately put it on the back of their couch to be displayed for all to see. The colors were vibrant and the fish fit with their theme so perfectly. They really love it!! Thank you!! Now I need one for my house!! 🤗❤️
A friend has this blanket in a red color. I loved the fish design. I wanted this for a short term stay rental log cabin so I wanted something colorful. I was concerned that it would be more of a gold color but it is a gorgeous bright yellow. I actually hung it on the wall as a hanging. It really is so very pretty. We have had lots of comments on it.
The price was great. All around 5 stars
My only challenge was because it was used as a wall hanging. We had a heck of a time getting the fold marks out of the piece. I wet it. Dried it. Steamed it. There are still some folds visible but it is fine. That doesnt have anything to do with the product at all but more that I wanted to hang it rather than use it as a blanket.
Again.......LOVE!! One of my favorite pieces!
