Wool Throw Blanket / Mazahua Estrellas / Blue
These 100% wool blankets are perfect for cozying up on the couch. Lightweight yet incredibly warm, these are produced only by special order from our partners in Estado de México and each piece requires weeks or work to complete.
The master weavers from this part of México are renowned for their skill. Attend any "concurso de artesanía" at the regional or national level and you will see the submissions from these small towns are consistently recognized as among the best of the best.
Traditionally they produce either very large and rather expensive blankets or the more common, shawl-like rebozo for women. We have a few of their beautiful rebozos in our personal collection and discovered accidentally that if they were made just a bit larger they would make fantastic throws. So we reviewed designs with our partners and decided to make the blankets available in two sizes. The medium measures 2.0 meters in length x 1.0 meter in width, while the large is 2.0 meters x 1.5 meters.
Our partners source as must of the material as they can locally. They raise their own sheep to produce the wool and they produce natural dyes wherever possible, using plants and flowers from their farm.
The hand-embroidered designs are based in Mazahua traditions.
