Handloomed amid the mountains and abundant pine trees of Central Mexico, this thick, striped blanket is made from a blend of rustic virgin and Merino wools. The natural, undyed, and untreated fibers come from sheep that roamed the same terrain. Traditionally used as a sarape in Mexico's colder climes, a fringed blanket such as this one would also be worn by vaqueros—or cowboys—while riding at night. It also works as a rug or queen-sized bed cover.
COLOR Cream, grey, and brown MATERIAL Virgin and Merino wool ORIGIN Handloomed in Mexico DIMENSIONS Queen-sized: 72 inches (tall) x 90 inches (wide), with 6-inch fringe
Mexchic creates objects with integrity, hovering in the realm of conceptual and artistic, designed in-house then hand-made by only the most talented Mexican artisans, using centuries old techniques in limited editions. Collectable works seeped in Mexican tradition while also contemporary and personal.
Mexchic’s collections are research-based which merge designer Christina Hattler’s aesthetics, love of archeology, anthropology and textiles with her personal experiences of having lived in Mexico for over 15 years. Inspiration comes primarily from Mexico’s rich cultural heritage, Indigenous cultures, art, architecture and ceremonial traditions.
Christina lives and works in Oaxaca, Southern Mexico
