Blanket (Velura Throw): Bill Helin - Chilkat
Size: 152 cm H x 127 cm W

Why not bring your home to life by complementing any room with the wonderfully unique Chilkat Velura™ throw.

The Chilkat is a reproduction of an original weaving in the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull. Originally woven from mountain goat wool and cedar bark, these blankets were the specialty of the Tlinget, whose territory was at the mouth of the Chilkat River in Alaska.

Using highly abstracted crest designs in blue, yellow, white, and black , this exceptional Chilkat blanket, was initially developed by the Tsimshian people of the same area, and bears the weaver’s interpretation of the traditional “Diving Whale” pattern.

This intricately beautiful design has been recreated on our classic, luxuriously soft Velura™ throw.

Licensed exclusively to Kanata Blanket Company by the Canadian Museum of Civilization. The Museum is recognized as one of the premier cultural facilities of the twentieth century, promoting a greater understanding of cultural identity, history and culture. Royalties from sales of this item go to support the development of native art and culture.

Each blanket is 50" X 60" and made out of 100% Polyester.
