The Intertidal Sand blanket is adorned with original art with a captivating depiction of species that live in the Intertidal zone, and is meticulously crafted by skilled artisans. 

The intertidal zone, a place submerged in water at high tide and exposed at low tide, is a unique environment where you’ll find a wealth of creatures and plants seeking refuge in rock pools and nestling in the sand: sea stars to seaweeds, sea snails, anemones and crabs. The artwork captures the delicate and intricate nature of these marine wonders.

Not only is the Intertidal Sand blanket a feast for the senses, but it is also built to last. Its meticulous craftsmanship ensures enduring quality, allowing you to cherish this work of art for years to come. Whether it graces your bedroom, sofa or becomes a cherished heirloom, this beautiful blanket will continue to inspire and delight.

Every blanket comes with a printed Nature Connection Guide, that tells you more about the species featured.

SPECIAL FEATURES

NATURE-CONNECTED ART

Art that tells a true natural world story to will drive curiosity and connection, carefully researched by us, as an artist and an ecologist

SUSTAINABLE

Made in small batches from recycled cotton, which requires significantly less water and produces less carbon dioxide than virgin cotton.

ETHICAL PRODUCTION

Woven using the best sustainable and ethical practices on Jacquard Looms, by highly skilled weavers in a small family business in the foothills of North Carolina. 

HEIRLOOM & WASHABLE

Designed to last a lifetime and beyond, and also machine washable, so you can keep them looking beautiful for years to come.

PRESENTATION

Every blanket comes tied with recycled cotton ribbon, and with a beautifully prined Nature Connection Guide that tells you more about the species featured.

How you can use your blanket

This is a very versatile size and can be used as a sofa throw, cuddle blanket, table throw, yoga or picnic blanket, or as a throw over the bottom of a bed. Arcana blankets are, in fact, woven soft tapestries, making them highly versatile. They can be used as a decorative throw, a snuggly blanket, as tapestry art hung as the wall, or even as a picnic blanket. As they are machine washable, you can be confident you can keep them looking glorious for years to come. And because they are so finely woven, they are also reversible, showing the design in different complementary colours on the back. 

What they are made from

Our blankets are woven from 75% recycled cotton, 20% spun cotton and 5% polyester that is required in the recycled cotton portion to retain its strength. 

All the colours you see are woven from just six colours of threads, which can be seen in the 1.5 inch fringing on the edge. Two edges show the colours, two show black and white threads.

Each soft tapestry blanket contains over 8 miles of yarn. Because the blankets are woven, every one is reversible, showing different colours on the back.

From cosying up with a book to lying on the beach, you can use your blanket everywhere at any time of year, as the lightweight nature of the fabric allows amazing versatility.

Natural and woven fabrics and beautiful and unlike anything else. Due to their nature some minor imperfections may be present but we think this only adds to their charm.

Our blankets are woven with love by a small family business in North Carolina.      

SIZE

This blanket is our medium size, which is approximately 182cm x 137cm (72”x54”). The exact dimensions of each design might vary slightly from the above, due to the difference in the density of weave of different colours.

CARE

You can hand wash or machine wash the blanket in cold water on a delicate cycle using a mild detergent, so you don’t need to worry about loving it and taking it everywhere. Do not bleach. Line dry or machine dry on cool cycle only.

Intertidal Blanket

I love the Intertidal blanket, I wrap it around me when I am relaxing on a sofa buried in a book or watching a TV show. The rest of the time, it adorns our music room sofa perfectly! I also hugely appreciate the text that accompanies Ria’s products – very interesting and educational.

Intertidal is stunning

We are thrilled with our intertidal blanket, it is beautiful both in its design and colour and seems so well made that I’m sure it will last the test of time. There are already fights on the sofa over who gets it! The quality is so good that I have ordered three wrap blankets for Xmas presents

Beautiful heirloom blanket.

I absolutely love our new Sand blanket from the stunning Intertidal collection - I found it so hard to choose, but was ultimately seduced by the gorgeous royal blue of the reverse side. The quality of the fabric, the colours, and the details are so beautiful. The weight of it is lovely to snuggle up under. This blanket will be much loved and used at home and by the sea!
