Licensed & Indigenous Artist Designs

Browse our Artist Series for North American Indigenous designs

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.

Kanata offers several blanket options with original designs from some of North America’s most celebrated Indigenous artists. Designs are either woven into our cotton tapestry blankets, or embroidered or printed onto our soft polyester and wool blankets. Featured artists come from some of the most artistically esteemed cultures, such as the Haida, including artists Bill Reid, Joe Mandur JR, James Hart, and brothers Jaalen and Gwaai Edenshaw.

Since 1993 we’ve been developing our product line, from our Licensed Artist Collection to our Home Collection, which offers home decor options to fit any space. Keep an eye out and check out our NEW product category, as it continues to be updated all the time.

Kanata upholds superior product quality standards, award-winning decoration and delivery of your order, exceptional international manufacturing capabilities, domestic manufacturing capabilities, and innovative products and solutions.
