    No, those are Native American. He means the colorful ones for seats

    I've bought them from farm stores TSC Rural King Etc... In the horse section...
    So if there is one near ya I'd start there..
     
  8. The colorful ones for seats are normaly Navajo, I have some real mexican blankets they are pretty plain. Normally plaid or with a stripe. Unless I am spending time on the res I usually find them at a truck stop at least that is the best place to find them around here.

    You might want to check with your local weavers guild as well-I know a couple of weavers around here-namely through the one in Ingersoll ON who did that kind of blanket as well...
     
  16. Drive south until you can't understand the language - You're either in Mexico or Mississippi

    When I needed some I went to "themexicanblanketcompany.com" They're out of Texas and had speedy shipping.
