Harold Tichenor’s website dedicated to the history of trade blankets, more specifically the Hudson Bay Point Blanket, has some great information on these iconic textiles. These wool linens got their name from the lines (or “points”) woven into the edge of the of the blanket, which served as a way of easily communicating the size and price of the blanket without having to unfold it during trade. Have a look at Harold’s site and learn a bit more about the origins of this now trendy bedding.
