About Mexican Serape Blankets

serape on sofa Popular with just about everyone, Mexican serapes are a versatile textile. They are as much a hardy Yoga blanket, a picnic or beach blanket as a decorative touch. Inside, Mexican blankets add rich warmth and colorful accent to any room in the house.

Mexican serape blankets are great for brightening up any room, and can be used as a throw, table cover, bedspread or even a light floor covering or wall hanging! Because the blankets are machine washable, they are also great for keeping your pet's favorite chairs and sofas free of hair and all the dirt our beloved dogs and cats bring in!

Serape blankets come in many different colors. The vibrancy of the blanket is created by dying each color strand separately before hand-looming to create striped color waves that seem to melt into each other. The largest stripe is always the primary color and repeated throughout weave, along with complimentary colors. There are also serapes made in lighter tones and softer shades. You can also find them in colors of the same tones as well. The ends of the serapes blankets are usually finished with fringed ends. Because of the nature of the weave, each finished blanket is a beautiful, unique work of textile art. Watch the video above and see for yourself the difference in the quality of serapes.
