Red Rocks Blanket

When we found our way to Colorado, there was one place at the very top of our bucket list: Red Rocks.

The famed music venue is carved into the hillside between towering red rocks, and when the moon rises over the horizon, and the music rises up to the stars - you'll know why it's one of the most magical places on earth.

The Red Rocks Blanket is a tribute to Red Rocks and red rocks everywhere, and now you can take that magic with you wherever you go.

Because of their handmade nature, the color and details may vary on each blanket (scroll down for more info).

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 Newport 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.

 

 

Made Ethically & Sustainably By Indigenous Mexican Artisans

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.

A Uniquely Handmade Item


Expect variances!

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)!

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 questions about this please feel free to contact us before you order!

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.

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.

Which is exactly why we made sure that all of our current 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!).

The cold part is very important! Some of our blankets have both dark dyes and light areas on them. Washing on cold will prevent the red and darker dyes from bleeding into the other areas.

If needing to wash multiple blankets, we recommended washing and drying each blanket separately for best results.

WHAT TO AVOID

FIRE AND FLAME

As with just about any material, you want to keep fire and flame away from it. Refrain from smoking near the blanket and if camping, make sure to set it up far enough away from the fire that hot embers or ash won't land on it. The blanket isn't coated with any flammable chemicals so it won't burst into flames if a spark hits it, but it will burn a hole in your favorite new blanket and that's no fun.

SHARP/ROUGH OBJECTS

Something sharp or abrasive can obviously cause a tear in your Trek Light Gear blanket. If you're using it on the ground, watch out for sharp sticks or other objects that could snag on the blanket. Remember that snags in a woven blanket can look worse than they are - the woven threads are just getting pulled apart so it looks like a hole, but you can make that 'hole' disappear just by pushing the threads back together again.

MOLD/MILDEW

Like most textiles, you don't want to let your blanket get moldy or mildewy. The blankets can be washed, so you certainly don't need to be afraid of getting it wet, but just remember not to pack your blanket away while it's wet and forget about it. As long as you hang it to dry or tumble dry (see above) you'll have no issues with mold.

EXTENDED UV EXPOSURE

Over a period of time, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the colors of the blanket to fade and will eventually weaken the fibers in the yarn. You don't need to be concerned about using your blanket in the sun, that's normal. But we don't recommend leaving your blanket (or any other Trek Light Gear products) permanently outdoors as it will shorten the life of your product and void your warranty. For more detail, see this page on UV and Elements Exposure.

FINALLY, WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T - UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES - FEED THEM AFTER MIDNIGHT.

Great quality, great company

Love the blanket -- we've been looking for a good "rugged" blanket that can withstand dogs, dirt and life. Glad we found one resistant/durable, one that looks good and one that supports an ethical organization.
