Handmade Item

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

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.

Blanket Care

Cleaning

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!).

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.

Every purchase creates a chain reaction of good and happiness in the world, and it all starts with you.

Absolutely in love with our blanket!

So I initially learned about this company and the blanket itself when we stayed at an Airbnb for a staycation and the host had it in their living room. And I immediately fell in love. Our first night I went into Trek’s website as I had never heard of them.. and then learned they are a Colorado-based company! My family and I have big ties to CO (lived there for 11 years, both our girls were born there); needless to say it was icing on the cake. This blanket was out of stock, because believe me I tried to buy it that night 😅. So I kept an eye out and I am so glad I did. This blanket is beautiful and cozy and fun. Gives a beautiful pop of color! It’s sturdy too. You think it might be light on warmth but it’s so cozy and perfect! If you’re considering it, buy it. You will absolutely not be disappointed. I’ve also been using it as a yoga blanket too! Super versatile.

Poor Shipping

So many pre-emails with a lot of hype on “your blankets on the way”! This is how it arrived…. Could have done a better presentation for sure! Arrived open, but Blanket is nice!
