Tell me about Blankets and Weaves

Blankets and Weaves was started from an absolute love of blankets.  This is a passion shared by many South Africans. In fact, South African culture is closely linked to the tradition of blankets. Used from childbirth to initiation into manhood, weddings and even funerals, blankets have a firm place in numerous South African tribes' traditions.

We wanted to create a space to explore both the rich heritage of tribal blankets as well as beautiful designer blankets. Where you can browse, learn and choose the perfect blanket for you, right from the comfort of your home, phone, tablet or computer :)

We can proudly say that our blankets are all made in South Africa. Our genuine tribal blankets as well as our designer and throw blankets are all made right here. The quality is kept to the highest standards.

Here at Blankets and Weaves we understand the value of excellent service and building great relationships with our customers. We love, respect and cherish every customer. We will treat you with care and friendship and always with professionalism, courtesy and efficiency.

What quality are your blankets?

We only source the best quality blankets that will last for years to come.

We have a number of different types of blankets and each type will be specified and detailed on the product page.

Luxury Designer Blankets 

Our Designer Blankets are made of beautiful rich designs and are created with your warmth and luxury in mind. Most of our Designer blankets are made of 90% Acyrlic and 10% Polyester.

Some of the Designer blankets are made of Microfibre (this will be noted in the description). Microfibre is a special quality acrylic  - twice as fine as silk and nearly 100 times finer than human hair!

  1. Microfibre is STRONG! So it is durable and will last for many years to come.
  2. Microfibre is SILKY SOFT! Its extremely soft touch feels deliciously luxurious. 
  3. Microfibre blankets are WARM! Warmer than any other acrylic blanket this is a quality choice you know you can count on.

All of our Designer blankets are reversible so you can change your blanket as you change your mood, mind, decor or wardrobe :)

These blankets have a beautiful, luxury, silky feel while keeping you absolutely snug.

Cultural Blankets

We are extremely proud of our genuine Xhosa and Basotho Cultural Blankets. These classic blankets are richly woven with stories that date back over a century. Each blanket generally has a specific use or symbolic interpretation and are traditionally used for everything from the celebration of a newborn baby to initiation into mandhood, weddings and many cultural ceremonies.  They not only serve very practical purposes in daily life but they are also all strikingly bright, beautiful and warm.


Are your blankets proudly South African?
