Pacific Northwest(salmon) blanket and cap set

Product Review: Pacific Northwest(salmon) blanket and cap set Dear Sharon~ I am so pleased with the above mentioned set~ the Pacific Northwest traditional design is represented around the blanket, and cap borders; the colors are bold while holding the traditional blessing, "keeping the baby in the center". The blanket and cap are well hand-crafted, and made with excellent materials. I have searched for a Native American crafted product site....that also supports cottage businesses. The price for the set is below other similar items that I found. Your courtesy in answering my numerous questions, went well beyond "customer service". I will definitely be a return shopper.
