Picnic Blanket


( / )

The Picnic Blanket made with repurposed traditional corte <cor-tay> textiles. We look specifically for worn textiles and combine cut-offs from our Corte Wrap production for these cozy blankets.

Our embroidery artisans in Sumpango first mend any holes stitch by stitch sashiko-style, and then lay out the pieces to make a large picnic blanket that also makes a great couch blanket and even a travel towel. The blanket stitching all along the edges is all done with naturally-dyed thread prepared by our partner weavers at Lake Atitlán. Support two groups of women artisans, and keep yourself cozy ❤️

The red thread hue comes from mahogany. Please note that each Picnic Blanket is slightly different as the textiles are different and the embroidery is done by hand. But we choose similar predominantly blue cortes only, always with intricate ikat designs.

Dimensions: 60 in (1.5 m)  by 55 in (1.4 m)

This product ships directly from Guatemala.

Beautiful Blanket

The picnic blankets ordered for myself and my daughter are beautiful. I will probably use more as lightweight throw than for picnics. Living in Florida it is a great weight for the cool spring and summer evenings. Looking forward to ordering more product of this beautiful fabric.

Amazing Soft, Light, Picnic Blanket

I am a fan of KaKaw Designs. I have purchased many items from this store, which attests to the quality and usefulness of the items. Last year, these blankets were part of a KaKaw Designs Kickstarter Project. When I saw all the items of the Kickstarter project, I was drawn to these beautiful and soft blankets. I have already used mine for a few summer picnics, when I went on vacation, in my Yoga practice, and just to snuggle up on those cool summer and fall mornings. It is a light-weight blanket with amazing details. I appreciate the fabric used to create my blanket, as each piece of fabric is part of some woman's story. This blanket is easy to fold or can be rolled into a tote bag, purse, or backpack, which makes it a great travel companion. I do not think you will be disappointed if you purchase this blanket.
