Birch Path

These blankets are robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. They are impressive as wall hangings and practical when folded on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. Felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

An Odawa legend tells of Wiigwaas, a boy gifted by the Creator at birth with the desire to help his people. His childhood was spent hunting, gathering, and constructing shelters with his elders, Wiigwaas died young, and was buried in pure white buckskins. A white birch tree sprung from his grave, providing bark used for wigwams, canoes, hunting and fishing gear, containers, hats, garments, and more. Birch path honors the legend of Wiigwaas and his aspiration to help others with an allover design of connected branches, unnapped.
