Printed Velura™ Throw - Wolf
Artist: Kanata Blanket Co.
For a gift with a West Coast feel, our unique Bill Helin Printed Velura™ Throw is now available on our super-soft Velura™.
Blankets have always been an integral part of North American life from their early use as clothing and shelter to their trading value as a form of barter exchange. In honor of these traditions, Kanata has recreated these Tsimshian Life crest designs by Bill Helin on our ultra-soft Velura™ throw.
The Wolf is the prowler of the night, traveling in packs to keep strong and to support each other. Because of his hunting prowess, many Indigenous Peoples tried to assume the spirit of the wolf to enhance their own hunting prowess and senses for the wilderness. The Wolf is given to show respect; it symbolizes supporting one another as within a relationship, a team or a family.
