Here, everything has a story…
Blue Eyed Buffalo is a Canadian Métis family owned storytelling business.
Their brand began in 2016, but the story had started before… The project is unparalleled, the entire line is based on blessings and we think the visuals are exceptional.
The blanket pattern was passed on to her mother from her Aunt and her Father in Law was a
Métis Elder. The collaboration of the two very unique visions brought the “Blessing Blanket” to life.
Storytelling celebrates special moments in life by keeping them alive in our hearts. The vision of
the “Blessing Blanket” was inspired from the events that weave family and friends into the story
of one’s life.
Each "Blessing Blanket" is handcrafted. There is No Mass Production, each "Blessing Blanket" pattern is individually cut and sewn by hand, as a result, each blanket may vary slightly.
They have brought together the finest certified European Organic materials with a warm and
gentle feel. The fabric is then printed in their original and vivid colorful designs from non-toxic,
low impact dyes to celebrate life’s precious blessings.
Each of the inspired designs of the Collection 7 Series speaks its own story. There are two (2)
very distinct sides to each “Blessing Blanket”. The outside of the blanket begins a visual story
while the narrative blessing is placed in the inside of the blanket.
The child is then wrapped in the blessing….
Gathering stories inspired by the heart of everything...
The bison or buffalo as we refer to them, became an iconic symbol of the Great Plains. They are the largest majestic and formidable mammal living in Canada. Tens of millions of bison once freely roamed the plains and were critically important to the Indigenous People.
By the early 1900’s, the settlers had nearly wiped the great buffalo herds to extinction. In 1906, the Canadian Government purchased one of the last surviving herds from a First Nation’s reservation in Montana and they were moved to Wood Buffalo National Park in northern Alberta.
