This beautiful new collection was designed by Naiomi Glasses, a Diné asdzáán (Navajo woman) who lives on the Navajo Nation. She is a seventh-generation Navajo textile artist that learned the craft of weaving from her late paternal grandmother, Nellie, and her brother Tyler. She focuses on designs that incorporate stripes and old-style elements such as Saltillo diamonds, four directional crosses, and wedge weave, which is an older weaving style that creates zigzags.
100% of the profits from her collection will be donated to Chizh for Cheii (Wood for Grandpa), an organization that provides free firewood to high-risk elders on the Navajo Nation and surrounding areas.
The blankets are sustainably made with comfort and durability in mind. Woven from a recycled, dye free, chemical free, water free, wool blend that is certifiably eco-friendly, cruelty-free and good for our planet.
