Custom Blankets, Labels, and Corporate Gifts

Custom Wool and Cotton Blankets

Your design deserves the best—you deserve Eighth Generation! 

Eighth Generation is the first Native-owned and operated company to offer Native-designed wool blankets. If your organization, company, or tribe is interested in custom blankets or labels, let us share with you what makes placing your custom blanket order with Eighth Generation special. 



What do you offer?

For organizations interested in producing custom blankets for your own gifting or merchandizing, we offer wool blankets with custom labels and cotton throw blankets. Both types of blankets are a beautiful way to showcase your organization's message and artwork in a meaningful way.

Please note that we are not soliciting artwork or applications from individual artists who wish to collaborate with us.

What if I don’t have a design already?

No problem! We’ll work with you to develop a design that suits your organization’s vision. 

What is the cost, minimum order quantity, and production timeline?

The minimum order quantity (MOQ) for a custom wool blanket is 350 units and delivery can take up to 7 months after the artwork is approved, so it’s important to get started early. The price per blanket depends on the quantity, artwork, delivery location, and other factors. Please email us for more information.

For our custom cotton throw blankets, the MOQ is 112 units, and it takes approximately 12 weeks for delivery after the artwork is approved. The price per blanket depends on quantity, artwork, delivery location, and other features. Please email us for more information.

How does the process work?

For each custom blanket project, we offer design consulting and development, custom labels, a sample for you to review and approve, and delivery in beautiful Eighth Generation boxes.

Once you’ve decided to move forward with a blanket project, the process generally follows this path:

  • Collaborative design development. If you have existing artwork you'd like to use, we'll work with you to adapt it to our production guidelines. We have years of experience working respectfully with cultural art, and we'll work closely with you to ensure your vision is faithfully represented.
  • Sample blanket to review. After the artwork is finalized, a sample blanket is produced. We’ll send pictures for you to check out to give you a sense of the finished product.
  • Delivery. This takes a few months, but your patience will pay off when you receive your blankets, each individually packaged in Eighth Generation boxes.


Custom Blanket Labels

I want customized blankets, but don't meet the minimum quantity for wool or cotton blankets. What are my options?

To achieve the personalized feel you're looking for but with a smaller order quantity, we can create a custom label and sew it onto an existing, in-stock blanket. These custom labels are a high-resolution print on leather and sewn onto the corner of each blanket. The labels measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and can feature your logo, picture, and/or text in full color print.

We typically require a minimum order of 5 blankets, but feel free to still reach out if you're interested in a slightly smaller quantity. To inquire about the costs, please send an inquiry to our info email for more information


Corporate Gifts

Do you offer corporate gifts?

Yes! Eighth Generation is proud to offer two luxurious gift boxes perfect for corporate gifting. Our Self Care is Sacred Gift Box is full of spa-like goodies designed to nurture one's self, while our Rise and Indigenize Gift Box is full of Native-designed ways to start your day.

What makes working with Eighth Generation different? Why should we work with you?

When you choose to work with us, you’re not just supporting a Native-owned company—you’re helping ensure the sustained success of community-based artists through the Inspired Natives® Project. In addition, 5% of all blanket sales go toward the Inspired Natives™ Award to grow the next generation of Inspired Natives®.
