I own several Mexican blankets which I have accumulated over the years from both market peddlers and bigger companies like Tribe & True or Trek Light Gear. I am personally a fan of the larger, thicker woven Mexican blankets with colorful patterns that are not just stripes. I already own kaleidoscope diamonds and thunderbirds, and I was on the hunt this Christmas to find another unique blanket for a friend. I searched EVERYWHERE for the big blankets in colorful styles that I had bought before, and none of the big brands had what I was looking for. I checked Etsy, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and just about every single blanket merchant or hipster camping site on Google. For some reason, everyone is moving towards a "trendier," more rustic style with basic colors and minimal designs- but I wanted my classic styles and bright colors back! The blankets I was seeing were either too expensive or not quite right, until finally, after scrolling through products on Instagram for about two hours, Blue Highways Trading Co. popped up on my feed. I went to the website and immediately I saw I had finally found exactly what I was looking for and more. There were kaleidoscope diamonds, thunderbirds, mesas, and all kinds of other bright and beautiful patterns which I couldn't find anywhere else- AND they weren't overpriced!! I ordered a mesa blanket and it came quickly in the mail, and I was so excited to open the package. The blanket has the classic, "new Mexican blanket" smell, is just as thick as I was hoping for, and is even prettier in person. I even got a handwritten note from the seller! I am so happy with my blanket and I know for a fact it will be the best gift I am giving this Christmas. I'm glad I can support a small business and still get exactly what I'm looking for when no one else carries it!
The blankets I ordered are REALLY nice! I didn't know what to expect, but they turned out to have beautiful colors and patterns, plus they were very clean, durable, and well packaged too! I love them!
The blanket is beautiful, the colors are rich and it arrived very nicely packaged and was shipped quickly. The only downside for me was it had a very strong smell of incense that took 3 washes and airing out in the sun to get out! Might not bother someone else, I'm just sensitive to strong smells. Otherwise, a great shopping experience, Tina was very helpful and sweet! I would definitely recommend her shop! The blanket didn't bleed or shrink in the washer/dryer so that is a plus too!
Thank you for your positive review! I carry two types of blankets: made in Mexico, and made in India. You are right, the ones made in India do have a strong smell. It does disappear with airing out and washing, but can definitely be too strong initially for sensitive people. I'm glad you are happy with it now, but just fyi, I would have been happy to do an exchange or refund. Our blankets made in Mexico do not have any smell. I have information about this on the FAQ page, but often people miss seeing that page. I apologize and am glad the rest of your experience was positive. Thanks again for your feedback!
Excellent customer service. Blanket is beautiful and fits the description. It is a great size and thickness. The colors are rich but not too bright. The owner is incredibly kind. I love supporting small business.
This blanket arrived quickly and efficiently and packaged extremely well. Blanket is of great quality and pictures represent color and size appropriately. Can't wait to use this around the campfire soon!
