1993: Kanata Blanket is established.
Throughout history, blankets have been about people. In simpler times, one’s sense of well-being came from having the basics: a crackling fire, a hot cup of coffee, a dry place to sleep and a warm blanket to curl up in. From our first breath, we are warmed, protected and comforted by blankets. Kanata Blanket is built upon these values, creating products that become treasured household possessions.
Established in 1993, our original focus was to develop the Kanata brand with our Heritage Collection, concentrating on the retail and gift markets in both Canada and the USA.
Blankets have always been an integral part of Indigenous North American life and history, and to this day are still tied to Indigenous rituals, including celebrations of marriage, christenings and potlatches. In honor of these traditions, our Artist Series endeavors to capture both traditional and contemporary designs with licensing programs that give back to the artist, the organization and the community.
1997: Kanata begins to build its reputation in the promotional products market in Canada and the USA.
As blankets have rapidly become a more popular product category for corporate gifting, Kanata has continued to lead the way, developing new fabrics and concepts, and is considered the leading blanket supplier in the promotional industry

1997: The Kanata Home Collection is introduced.
Introduced in 1997, Kanata’s Home Collection was a new direction for Kanata. Combining the latest generation of high-tech fabrics with the most fashion-forward decor designs around, our Home Collection offers high-quality gifts that people will love to receive. Previously only available for corporate gift giving or through select retail stores, the Kanata Blanket website now offers our unique products online for an individual gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself.
For those who love the outdoors, Kanata also presents our line of rugged and portable blankets. The Kanata Sport Collection offers imported lifestyle products that carry the same Kanata brand and guarantee of quality.
