about our blankets
We do cotton the right way. Gray Heron blankets are made of the softest, most lightweight organic cotton muslin. We use only certified Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) fabric to make the best quality blankets. GOTS is the worldwide leading textile manufacturing and processing standard for organic fabrics and fibers. GOTS certification ensures that throughout the manufacturing supply chain the people making your blankets are paid a living wage, work in safe and clean conditions, and are not working for too many hours at a time. The organic fiber certification means there are no harmful chemicals or pollutants used to make your blanket. You can rest easy under your Gray Heron, knowing that it was made the right way.
About Gray Heron, LLC.
Designed in Boston. Made in India. On a hot summer night, founder Sarah Wilson was up in the middle of the night. Without air conditioning in her Maine home, she wandered down the hall to check on her baby and toddler to see if they were struggling to stay cool as well. Instead, she found them fast asleep and comfortable under their light and breathable swaddle blankets. The next day she searched the web to find a blanket of similar material for adults to no avail. The cotton seed was planted. When Sarah connected with a local fabric designer and an organic textile mill in India, her idea came to life. Finally, Gray Heron was born. You may not be a baby anymore, but you can sleep like one.
