Bill Helin Printed Wolf Velura™ ThrowKanata Blanket
For a gift that has a West Coast feel, this unique Wolf licensed design by Bill Helin is now available on super soft Velura™.
Blankets have always been an integral part of North American life from their early use as clothing and shelter to their trading value as a form of barter exchange. In honor of these traditions, Kanata has recreated these Tsimshian Life crest designs by Bill Helin on our ultra soft Velura™ throw.
In Tsimshian mythology, each symbol has powerful meanings:
The Wolf prowler of the night, traveling in packs to keep strong, and supporting each other. Because of his hunting prowess, many Natives tried to assume the spirit of the wolf to enhance their own hunting prowess and senses for the wilderness. The Wolf is given to show respect; it symbolizes supporting one another as within a relationship, a team or a family.
