These blankets, a part of the Joinery textile collection, are woven by a group of artisans who work out of our studio in Minas Gerais, Brazil. They are woven on manual looms, using a traditional tapestry technique, in a design that's indigenous to the region. Our textiles are available only through our shop. We don't wholesale so that we can pay our weavers generously and still keep these special, handmade goods affordable.
Our blankets are woven out of 100% unwashed cotton and so are oversized to compensate for the permanent shrinking that will occur after the first wash. We recommend washing on a cold, gentle cycle before use, which will cause your blanket a to shrink about 5 inches in width and length. We also recommend drying on a low heat setting which will tighten the weave and soften your blanket considerably. It will also cause another 5 inches of shrinkage in width and length, most of which will stretch back out with regular use. Using mild detergent and a gentle cycle and avoiding heat in future washing and drying will keep your blanket looking it’s best.
