Crisscross Organic Cotton Baby Blanket - Coral

  • Our lightest weight blanket, Crisscross Organic Blankets are make unique baby blankets any stylish mom would be thrilled to receive.   Hand-loomed in Turkey on the same looms as our Turkish Towels, we decided to include these blankets in our collection after growing tired of small, single-purpose receiving blankets. These oversized baby blankets can be doubled (or tripled) up to keep baby warm but also make lovely swaddles, stroller covers, and nursing covers. They are large enough to throw down on the ground for baby to move around on but also nice and compact in your bag. 

    > larger than a traditional baby blanket, these blankets will last far beyond the infant stage
    > hand-loomed in Turkey from 100% organic cotton using eco-friendly, naturally-dyed threads
    > loomed on traditional shuttle-style looms
    > launder beautifully - grow softer and with use

    Details & Care: Machine wash cool, tumble dry low. No bleach or fabric softener. 400 gram weight. 70" x 40"

     

     

  • The families we work with are some of the last families in Turkey that loom all of their textiles the way they have been loomed for many hundreds of years - on old, shuttle style looms from exclusively organic cotton threads. The weavers are paid fair wages. Most work in their village or family units to weave and finish our blankets; frequently the men loom the pestemals while women prep the threads for looming and twist the fringe on each completed blanket.

    By purchasing our throw blankets you are not only purchasing luxurious throw blankets that your family will enjoy for years to come, but also proving a livelihood for artisan families and helping to ensure the art of looming is passed down to future generations.
