The Betsy Ross Flag Throw celebrates their Made in USA pride with her original 1776 design.

From providing woolen blankets for pioneers heading west to comforting our troops through two world wars, Faribault woolens are woven into American history.

According to the archeological record, the alpaca was domesticated in the Andes nearly 6,000 years ago. Still at the heart of much of Andean culture, the alpaca is uniquely adapted to the extreme climate of the Altiplano, the largest and highest plateau in the world outside of Tibet. The silkiest alpaca fiber was once reserved for Inca royalty, but today the cashmere-like softness of superfine alpaca is available to anyone, thanks to a thriving South American alpaca industry. Made from 100% superfine alpaca, this lightweight and velvety soft throw is the perfect way to stay warm on a cool evening, curled up with the latest issue of National Geographic.

Today we have two-way radio, satellite phones, and sophisticated GPS equipment, but in the 18th century, ships at sea communicated with each other via signal flags. Even with all our modern gear, sometimes low-tech is the way to go, and the flags are still used in conjunction with these newer communication technologies. Each flag stands for a letter and can be used to spell out words, but each flag also stands for a full message. For example the “C” flag can also mean “affirmative,” and the “U” flag can be a signal to an approaching ship that it is running into danger. The flags have still more meanings when used in yacht racing.

Although signal flags have been largely replaced by two-way radio and cell phones, in the 19th century they were how ships at sea communicated with each other. Each flag stands for a letter, but also represents a full message. For example, the “T” flag also meant “keep clear!” Today the flags are reserved for yacht racing and formal occasions. Choose your three-initial monogram and artisans in New England will create a coaster set on cork-backed, rustic tumbled marble that shows your initials along with the corresponding signal flags.

The Mughal Empire dominated the Indian subcontinent in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The shahs spared no luxury, even when the court was on the move during a military campaign or hunting expedition. Printed cottons such as these would have made tent “walls” in the northern Indian desert. The print of our reversible throw pillow, inspired by the intricate metalwork settings of Mughal jewelry, requires as many as 12 separate blocks to achieve the layers of color and pattern.
