Painter Salvador Dalí owned a pet ocelot named Babou that was seen with him at many places he visited, including a trans-continental ocean voyage aboard the SS France.
When a diner at a New York restaurant was alarmed by the ocelot, Dali told her that it was a common domestic cat that he had "painted over in an op-art design".
We don't condone keeping a wild animal like an ocelot as a pet, or painting your cat for that matter, so we created this beautifully striped blanket to take with you instead.
Because of their handmade nature, the color and details may 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.
