Birch Bark Reversible Wool Blend Blanket
Eco-friendly, everyday blankets from Mini Tipi are made from sustainable fabric woven in Italy. Great for a queen size bed or a throw blanket. This design is bright and colourful on the front, and more neutral with pops of colour on the opposite side!
The warm and luxurious wool/acrylic/polyester blend makes them very soft, yet washable. The trim adds a beautiful finish.
About the Design:A birch bark biting is a unique piece of Indigenous artwork. They are made from biting an image, using only the teeth, into a thin, single layer of birch bark harvested from the birch tree. Then, by carefully folding the bark, the pattern imagined is pressed into the birch bark, using only the teeth. Because each piece must be created individually, birch bark bitings are like people; no two are exactly alike.

She was born and raised in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada and is a member of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation.
