When Jimi Hendrix took the stage at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, it was the first time he had ever headlined in front of an American audience.
After watching The Who end their set by smashing their instruments on stage, he knew there was only one thing left to do:
He doused his guitar with lighter fluid, kissed it, lit on fire, and smashed it to pieces before throwing the remains into the audience. The rest is history.
Think about this moment often, then take this blanket along for the adventure.
Because of their handmade nature, the colors and details will vary on each blanket (scroll down for more info).
Remember your favorite blanket as a child? The one that you took everywhere, the one that made you feel safe, and the one that smelled like every memory you've ever had?
You're a grown-up now. And this is your new Adventure Binky.
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 Blackbird Adventure Blanket 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.
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.
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.
