Check out our contest video featuring former Studio Assistant Sequoia (Navajo) and share with the artists in your life. If you know an indigenous artist that's got what it takes to design a beautiful blanket, we want to help them make that happen!

Other Considerations

  • Just to be clear - we are NOT asking you to create a blanket design to submit! We don't ask artists to do work for free.
  • Wondering what pieces to send? Choose artwork that you feel best represents your skills - pick the art that you're most proud of.
  • Questions? Please email info@eighthgeneration.com.

We look forward to seeing your submissions!
