These eco-friendly everyday blankets are made from sustainable fabric woven in Italy. It’s perfect for family picnics, camping, getting cozy around the campfire and is made large enough for a queen size bed or a throw blanket. The warm and luxurious wool/acrylic/polyester blend makes them soft, yet washable. The trim adds a beautiful finish.

The Designer:

Nikki Shawana is a mother, wife, businesswoman, teacher and friend. She loves to travel throughout North America and participates in various powwows as a singer and dancer. Nikki has followed in the footsteps of her grandparents who were also talented artisans. She enjoys making moccasins, mittens, beaded jewelry, baskets and quilts.

The Bear, or Mkwa in the Ojibwe language, is symbol of courage and balance. Nikki was drawn to include Bears in this design to show the reciprocal relationship to Mother Earth and to the animals. The Stars show our connection to the universe.
The domes are the Haudenosaunee design that represents the Skyworld.  

The florals using Anishinaabe woodland designs, remind us of the beauty of nature.

The berries to honour the bears. The trees and forest are the original place of healing and wellness; in the forest we find our medicines, solitude, peace and balance.
