The Aztec Soft blanket is inspired by the Aztec textile art.
The blankets with Aztec loom are considered a Mexican craft. The blankets were hand-woven by the artisans on wooden looms.
The Aztec Indian captured in his creations what they saw in their arid and desert environment: animals, plants, flowers, sunrises, sunsets... To dye the threads they used natural dyes, which he obtained from insects and fruits, inspired by the colours of the desert.
The Aztec blanket is very colourful as it was believed that wearing bright colours brought favours from the gods and kept away evil spirits.
These blankets are characterised by a central diamond framed by coloured horizontal stripes at the ends. The diamond represents the sunrise and sunset in the northeast of Mexico, a symbol very represented in Aztec textiles.
The Aztec Soft blankets are perfect to decorate the sofa, the bed or different home corners and give a boho touch to the decoration. They can be used on both sides, one side being more colourful and the other more neutral. Its touch, soft and very pleasant, makes it an ideal blanket to use as warm blanket for bed. As it is a big blanket, it is perfect for the beach or for picnics. It is very light, which makes it a perfect travel blanket. Thanks to its characteristics, it is excellent as a meditation blanket.
