Ehren Seeland's curated collection blends contemporary design with traditional artisan pieces.

Anicka’s Pick: Modern Mexican wool blanket

Former Vancouverite Ehren Seeland regularly travelled the globe for development work, and in the process cultivated partnerships with artisans and craftspeople in Mexico and Guatemala. Her Hecho Shop, based in Oaxaca, Mexico, is an ethical business that works collaboratively with those artisans, with modern patterns and organic materials—like this Modern Mexican wool blanket, made of 100-percent organic undyed wools in natural tones of ivory and grey. Woven on vintage shuttle looms in the highlands of Mexico, the blankets serve as shawls in the region, but work beautifully over here as lap blankets. $95, available at Hecho Shop,
