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!
