Heartprint Threads - Frequently Asked Questions

So, what actually happens when I buy a blanket?

We are very fortunate to be working directly with multiple different foundations. In BC we work with Mamas for Mamas and in Alberta we work with The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre. We personally deliver a variety of blankets to be used for different benefits.  Some are used to do fundraising and others are simply donated to the donation centre where clients come and take them free of charge.  All blankets purchased outside of these places, for now, will be donated to The Calgary Drop-In. We do have plans to expand our helping hand slowly. If you have suggestions we'd love to hear them!

What are your blankets made of?

So soft...so cozy...one would think they are made of clouds. However they are made from 100% high grade post-consumer recycled acrylic! Absolutely animal and vegan friendly :)  Brushed to give them that unforgettable and addictive feel. Stay Cozy!  

What is a plantable tag?

Glad you asked! Our tags are printed on eco paper made from post consumer material. The seeds in the paper germinate and grow into plants. The paper itself is biodegradable so no waste is left behind! Just plant, water and watch the wildflowers grow! The seed paper is a combination of Catchfly, Sweet Alyssum, Snapdragon, Bird’s Eye,  Black Eyed Susan, Clarkia and English Daisy. For more information check out https://www.botanicalpaperworks.com/ 

How do I wash my new blanket?

We recommend washing the blankets in a cold delicate cycle and air drying

Are you fair-trade certified?

We work very hard to make sure our artisans are acknowledged and taken care of, however, we are not officially fair-trade certified. It is a title we are passionate about and would like to continue to work towards. 

Do you design any items yourself?

 We are consistently down in Ecuador, working closely with the artisans to provide the best product possible. We love to leave a lot of the creativity up the artisans, but we do also collaborate with many items ourselves.  For example, all the blanket scarves were designed by Heartprint Threads, The colors used in a lot of the blankets we hand picked, the leather bags while crafted by Miguel were designed by Heartprint Threads. We are thankful to be able to work together to create.
