Shake Off Winter with Seven Springtime Activities

Spring is around the corner! As the weather warms and plants start shifting from buds to blooms, how will you soak up every new moment of the season ahead? We've compiled a quick list — paired with some of our favorite products — to help you take full advantage of these longer, brighter days!


Pack a Picnic  

Spending a meal outside is a perfect, simple escape! Our wool blankets — like "Whispering Blossoms" designed by Michelle Lowden (Acoma Pueblo), pictured above  are cozy enough to get comfortable on a pebbled beach or forest floor. Plus, most of our wool blankets fit over a Queen-sized bed, so you'll have lots of space for snacks and spreading out!


Take a Stroll

Going for a walk or hike can boost your mental and physical health, especially in the sun! Whether on your own or with a friend, now is the time to try that hike you've heard about or to walk around a new part of town you've been waiting to explore. These Renewal crew socks, designed by Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe), are a great way to rock Ojibwe florals wherever you go!


Visit the Sights

Some scenes never get old, like the Snoqualmie Falls pictured above. If you have any major landmarks or viewpoints in your area, go check them out! Even if you've already visited them, it can be reinvigorating to let yourself appreciate your own home. And, if you have the chance, make it a day trip to somewhere new nearby!


Send a Note to a Loved One

Who doesn't love receiving a letter in the mail? We have Northwest, Plains, Southwest and Woodlands Greeting Card Packs designed by esteemed artists for saying a sweet hello to friends and family. We are so thankful to our postal services who have been working harder than ever to deliver our mail and packages during these times!


Go Green(er)

Spring cleaning is a smart time to evaluate your environmental impact. One quick switch to make if you haven't already: reusable tote bags made from 100% certified organic cotton. If you can, recycle or toss out paper and plastic bags and opt for a more stylish, durable and ecofriendly option like the Happy Hummingbird tote designed by Louie Gong (Nooksack).


Decorate your Space

Once that Spring cleaning is complete, spruce up your home with authentic, Native art! Our mini prints come in a variety of smaller, affordable sizes so anyone can own a piece of fine art that fits just about anywhere! All our prints come framed, with your choice or black or white to suite any aesthetic.


Cuddle up with a Book or Movie

Lastly, along with the sun we all crave, Spring is sure to bring some rainy days. When it's too soggy to venture outside, sip hot tea from one of our stylish new mugs and crack open a book or put on a movie. Pro tip: our baby blankets made in our Seattle studio, like the three pictured above, are ideal for a full day of lounging and family cuddles!
