The Beauty and Functionality of Saltillo Blankets


The Saltillo blanket is long known for being a multi-purpose blanket. These  blankets are named for the capital city of the Mexican state of Coahuila. I almost wonder if it should still be considered a blanket? I personally would just call it a Saltillo. I say this because often times it serves more purpose.Vintage Mexican Saltillo Blanket - Image 5 of 5

The Saltillo is a great item to have for the household, it can be used as a mat for sleeping and/or lounging. It makes a good room divider when hung in a doorway. What’s also great is the beautiful design of it makes them great decorative pieces to have around the house! They can be hung in the window as decoration and are thick enough to block out the sun! It makes for a unique table runner for aesthetic reasons too! Of course, they can be worn and draped around the shoulders for extra warmth and/or protection from the elements. Don’t forget about those outdoor adventures as well! Back in history Saltillo’s were used as saddles and extra protection for horses.

What will be the use for your Saltillo blanket?
