About the Harvesters Indigenous Blanket

Our eco-friendly everyday blankets are 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 DESIGN

'' When creating a blanket design for MINI TIPI, I felt it would not be genuine to simply adhere to frequently used styles of geometric designs.  This is why I chose to include the subject of wild rice harvesting from my own culture as an Anishnaabe.  Anishnaabe quiltwork was also a source of inspiration for the geometric patterns featured in my design.''

In September, during the harvest moon, the Ojibwe peoples begin the rice harvest. The harvest is done in pairs using poles to hit the rice stocks knocking the grains into the canoe. The rice is an important historic food source for the Ojibwe people that feed their families over the winter months.

About the artist Tsista Kennedy 

Beausoleil First Nations, Oneida Nation of the Thames, Turtle Clan

Tsista Kennedy, from Southern Ontario, is a self taught artist who has been working in the woodland style since the age of fourteen. Kennedy primarily works in a digital format, but made his way there from drawing with inks and painting with acrylics and watercolour. Touching on a wide variety of subjects, from residential schools and to indigenizing pop culture references, Kennedy’s style blends both traditionalism and modernism to represent who he is as an Indigenous man. Seeing the tablet as an endless artistic resource for remote or financially limited creators, Kennedy believes that digital art can help preserve and promote Indigenous cultures and traditions.

“My gift of creating artwork serves as a visual megaphone to the world…”
