Kanata has been given the exclusive license to produce a series of CPR throw blankets, including the Canadian Cotton Throw.
Canadian Pacific Railway bound the Canadian nation together on November 7, 1885, completing Canada’s first transcontinental railway. Today, Canadian Pacific operates 22,400 kilometers (13,900 miles) of rail line in Canada and the United States.
The Canadian is a fringed cotton throw in a single-layer tapestry design, reproducing a design by Roger Couillard.
The artwork of Montreal native Roger Couillard (1910–1999) first caught the eye of Canadian Pacific’s publicity department in the late 1930s. In 1955, Couillard designed one of CP’s iconographic posters, which depicted snow-clad mountains, ice-blue rivers and, of course, Canadian Pacific’s premier transcontinental train at the time, The Canadian.
Introduce this beautifully traditional Canadian design into your home. This classic but stylish, super-soft cotton throw is the perfect size to drape over any couch or bed, offering a touch of color and sophistication to any room.
