“If you are depressed you are living in the past, if you are anxious you are living in the future, if you are at peace you are living in the present.” —Lao Tzu
Our handwoven Peace design is a beautiful addition to your home or your home on the road.
What's a Blankestry? It's a functional piece of handwoven blanket art that can be hung as a tapestry or used in a variety of ways. Keep reading for more info on sizing and check out the photos!
If you're looking for an adult-sized throw blanket, see our full blanket collection.
Because of their handmade nature, the color and details may vary on each blanket (scroll down for more info).
From the day we first launched our line of adventure 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.
Measuring approximately 3ft x 3ft, the Blankestry series is the perfect mix of style and function - and the perfect size for decorating any wall space.
Every piece is intricately handwoven on traditional looms by the same artisans that make our beloved blankets. It IS a Trek Light adventure blanket, just smaller.
Our Blankestries are designed for your wall - 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.
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 skilled 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.
As a handmade and handwoven blanket, there may be variances in the details, and the hue of the blanket colors may be slightly 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 Blankestry is beautiful in its uniqueness so you should feel comfortable that you'll get a piece of art you'll be happy with - but if you have questions about this please feel free to contact us before you order!
For every item sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.
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.
Every purchase creates a chain reaction of good and happiness in the world, and it all starts with you.
As you've likely seen on our website, we stand behind our products with what we call our Happiness Guarantee. So, what does that mean exactly?
In a nutshell: We want you to be happy with what you buy from us, and if you aren't - you've got our promise that we'll always do whatever we can to bring you happiness.
Within reason, right? Maybe you're sad because everything in our store doesn't cost $1, or you wish our 30-day return window was actually 3 years - well, we need to have some policies and rules so we can survive as a small business.
What matters is that we're here for you.
We truly care about your happiness, and will always do what we can to help - maybe it's a discount on your next order, store credit for a future purchase, or just going out of our way to make sure that the next item you buy from us is exactly what you want.
Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It on.

I love this piece! I don't have it displayed yet, it kills me to know I have this gorgeous craftwork tucked away. I'm on the threshold of a cosmetic refreshing of my home, once that's done this goes up!!
This is the kind of lightweight boho tapestry I’ve been looking for. Minimal and sleek, it just makes me happy! Thanks for thinking of it and delivering. Love Trek Light’s mission and inventory — will be buying more :-)
I absolutely love your products, I will continue to order for myself and for gifts.
My friends loved their Christmas surprise as Santa slipped by on the Eve! It was their only nod to the holiday!
It was a Christmas gift for my GF she really loves it
