The Andean cross is a traditional symbol of unity – horizontally and vertically, used all across South America for centuries. It is also believed to represent the Southern Cross constellation.
These blankets are made in Ecuador by hard-working and talented artisans, who carry on a millennial tradition of weaving. Read more about the crafters here. We know our crafters personally, and enjoy watching their families grow! Follow our Facebook and Instagram pages for Maker Monday, when we share pictures of the artisans who make our products.
The “chakana” design blanket fits in beautifully in many design styles – its geometric pattern works well with modern as well as tribal or rustic looks. Simple geometric cross design down the middle and at the edges. Hang this gorgeous blanket from a blanket ladder, fold it at the foot of your bed, or keep it on the couch for snuggling.
