Our Cotton Throw Blankets are handmade by master artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico. Each blanket has been carefully woven on a standing foot pedal loom by a family who have been weaving for over three generations in this Southern Mexican state.
The men do the traditional weaving in this family, and they pass down the technique from father to son. After the weaving is complete, a nearby women’s cooperative provides the finishing touches of sewing and tying of the intricate hand-knotted fringe that completes each edge.
This creamy, off-white throw blanket features a sturdy cotton base. The cool color and tasseled edges are our take on a traditional Oaxacan bed cover. It is perfectly sized for the arm of a sofa, an end- of-bed coverlet or even as a stylish and relaxed picnic blanket. Every purchase directly benefits our artisan partners in Oaxaca, Mexico.
This 100% cotton throw is approximately 50” x 65” with a 4” hand-tied fringe on all four sides. Handmade in Mexico.
