Please select all options.

In Salish, "Ten" means "Mother." The original version was woven as a wall hanging in collaboration with the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, Canada. Kanata Blanket has reproduced this under license from the Museum of Anthropology, and royalties from the sale of this blanket are used by the museum to promote Native heritage. The striking range of geometric repeats woven

in "Ten" symbolizes the many life events and accomplishments of the designers, Debra and Robyn Sparrow. The design is dedicated in honor of their mother, whose strength and wisdom has helped guide them through their many achievements.
