The picnic. The quintessential time that we all need a blanket of some sort. So many times in the past we have used a bed sheet/tapestry or a quilted blanket on the lawn…which is how the idea of Tarpestry came about in the first place! The sheets and quilts end up getting wet from the dew on the grass or from a spilled drink, and the grass and burs always stick to them. After many a wet butt and a blanket covered in goose poop we created the Tarpestry to take care of the picnic pitfalls.
You may wonder what makes Tarpestry so much better for picnics than other outdoor blankets? For starters, the company has been built from the ground up by Carrie and Ted – a husband and wife team. All Tarpestrys are made in Colorado because made from the U.S. is very important to us. Also, the Tarpestry features grommet rings! If it’s windy or you find yourself on a sloped hill for your picnic you can stake this blanket into the ground so it will stay put whether you are on it or not. And if you find yourself in an unexpected rainstorm you can throw the Tarpestry overhead to keep dry. Last but not least when you take out a Tarpestry for your picnic you are taking with you a piece of art. You can sit on an artistic design instead of a plastic blue tarp or plaid blanket. The Tarpestry has many other uses that you will soon find out about when you take yours out on your next picnic. So break out your cheese and wine and your Tarpestry, it’s picnic season!
