Out Of The Woods.

Could your little gnome get any cuter? Featuring this adorable woodland dweller stitched into a bright, beautiful backdrop, this super cozy blanket is made almost entirely from leftover material collected from apparel and upholstery factories that would otherwise be discarded (75% recycled cotton, 25% acrylic). Each is slightly different in color and pattern in order to get the most out of the fabric scraps and minimize waste. Made in New York.

Growing up, Michigan farm girl Sandy Martin witnessed first-hand the the health repercussions of conventional farming with pesticides. Later, when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how some manufacturers negatively affected the environment and communities where they operated. So with the help of her husband Jim, Sandy founded an apparel company based on honesty, environmental awareness, and high-quality American-made designs. Their manufacturing process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks, or chlorinated bleaches. They reclaim waste fabric from their own production, from other garment makers, and from thrift stores and give these cast-offs new life in creative items like T-shirt scarves. Headquartered in a 19th century horse carriage terminal on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Martins' operation is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. They also work with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Some of the Martins' designs are cut and sewn by adults in the program, promoting independent living.

The blanket is of good quality, however the dimensions are way too small for anyone over the age of 5 to effectively use. I purchased it as a birthday gift for an (adult) friend and was embarrassed at the size.
