This gorgeous blanket is made from sustainable fabric woven in Italy. It’s perfect for family picnics, camping, getting cozy around the campfire and is made large enough for a queen size bed or a throw blanket. The warm and luxurious wool/acrylic/polyester blend makes them soft, yet washable. The trim adds a beautiful finish.
About the River Design
Water is life. Water is the heartbeat to all living things. We depend on water to always be there, to be clean and pure to quench our thirst and fill our cells. We take this natural essential for granted and we need to remember that this is a privilege. There are still many Indigenous communities across Canada that do not have clean drinking water. We all have a duty to ensure the water is protected, respected and honored.
A portion of the sales of this blanket will go towards Water First, to help indigenous communities gain clean drinking water through education and training and meaningful collaboration.
Water First works with communities in Canada to provide locally-based education and training opportunities for young indigenous adults through internship programs to gain the technical skills required to monitor and provide safe clean water to their communities.
