This beautiful wool blanket calls out to one of Eighth Generation's very first custom blanket projects, the "Tree of Life" Wool Blanket, created in partnership with the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi.
It was these early collaborations that played a crucial role in helping us to prove that our small Native-owned company was capable of delivering a powerful update to the outdated practices of the wool blanket industry. Appropriately, perhaps, the "Sprout" Wool Blanket reminds us of the importance of nurturing new growth. With space on the label to write a note to a special little one in your life, this blanket is the perfect gift to symbolize the hopefulness and resilience of new life.
The blanket design pays tribute to traditional Woodlands floral motifs, and was created with design support from Inspired Natives Collaborator Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe).
