Throw Blankets and Scarves

Country Pride

Farm2Fashion makes soft, knit blankets and throws with patriotic flair and a commitment to American manufacturing that we cannot help but admire. With a degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology and more than 25 years of experience in product development and knitwear design, the creator of Farm2Fashion, Laurie Perrone has a well-trained eye and a passion for sustainability.

The Betsy Ross blanket pays homage to the design of the first American flag, while the throws feature woven backs for a timeless look to match any décor. Farm2Fashion prides itself on its low carbon footprint—all materials are sourced, spun, and stitched within 232 miles of the company headquarters in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. The blanket and throws consist of 75% recycled cotton fabric scraps from apparel factories and 25% polyester that holds the cotton together to make the yarn stronger.

What better way to bring a touch of Americana to the foot of a bed or your favorite couch than with a Farm2Fashion design made with quality and care in the USA.

Grommet Launch Conversation

    Hello everyone,

    I am so excited to be featured on the The Grommet and to share our Made in America story with all of you. A deep love for natural fibers and local farms were the source of inspiration for our line of luxury blankets, apparel and accessories. When choosing where to manufacture our earth-friendly designs, we turned to long-standing American factories rich with history, talent and experience. A veteran in the Fashion business, I saw first-hand the decline of American manufacturing and wanted to do my part in reclaiming the pride of what it means to be “Made in America."

    I designed our line to be eco-friendly, sustainable and to emanate a "natural experience." My hope is to build connections between our customers and the farms from where our rich fibers originate. When you buy our products, you are supporting a small, woman-owned business; local farmers and factories; and America itself. I would be delighted to talk with you about our products and answer any questions you may have, so don’t be shy.

    Sorry, but using the American Flag as a throw blanket is completely disrespectful.

    @John I am of the same belief, Old Glory belongs on the pole and not wrapped around the body

    @Guest First of all it's not a flag, it's a blanket to look patriotic. I hope it's big enough to cover a queen size bed. It sounds great.

    Hi, Lucien, the blanket is 50" x 60" and is the size of a large throw that you can display at the end of the bed. We were inspired by the vintage feel of the 13 stars that Betsy Ross originally created. Our factory makes the most incredible quality products and the yarn is a recycled cotton blend. It is machine washable and can be tumble dryed on low.

    @Laurie @John @Guest I think @Guest said it perfectly....this is probably a matter of "belief" in terms of whether you prefer your flags only be seen in a traditional setting, or you can embrace vintage flag imagery as a patriotic association. Thanks for sharing your own beliefs here.

    @Jules Sorry but it's not just a "belief. Any vintage flag is still an official flag. As a company I'd think you'd not want to offend all those who sincerely respect the flag and it's traditions. Here's the entire code if you are interested.

    I agree with: " Sorry, but using the American Flag as a throw blanket is completely disrespectful "

    USA is not what it was, because its people is not like they were. And I don't mean race, color, or national origin.

    What message is being given to other nations.

    We alsohave a solid red and a solid navy blanket available in this great recycled cotton blend that have a red, white and blue pattern on the reverse side. If supporting Made in America products is a mission you can get behind these blankets can be a great way to enjoy our quality products.

    Hi Alexa, we plan on using iconic American images to bring awareness to our "Made In America" mission. Farm2Fashion will add tee shirts, pillows, scarves and other apparel items to get the message out. Images of the flag and patriotic themes have been used for centuries to inspires us. We hope featuring the Red,White and Blue will remind us to buy and choose American products first!

    This is not a flag!!! It's a blanket and it 's a beautiful way to show tribute to and be inspired by our flag and what it stands for. What I find appealing is the fact that it's made in America! and it's using recycled materials.

    Hi All,

    Amy from The Grommet team here. I'm so sorry that you feel that way and we certainly mean no disrespect to the American flag. We believe that The Betsy Ross design, an early version of our US flag is a beautiful way to bring this iconic image in blanket form into your home. However, we greatly appreciate everyone's opinion in our community.

    @Amy I purchased this beautiful piece as a gift for my aunt, who LOVED it! It is of such high quality and so gorgeous that she is having a quilt hanger made so she can display it as a wall hanging. The products from this company are truly works of art and I really get that Farm2Fashion has a solid mission...I could get behind that!

    I like your patriotic outlook and your products look well made but using the flag as a motif goes against long standing etiquette. Someone said " it's not a flag, it's a blanket." Any representation of the flag is the flag. Here's the United States “Flag Code” as found in Title4 of the United States Code section § 8. Respect for Flag.

    (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It

    should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to

    fall free.

    @Richard Are you saying wearing a pin that depicts an American flag on the lapel of a suit or on a dress is against the "Flag Code"? Or carrying a card with a US flag on it in your wallet is disrespectful? I think that showing true patriotism in any way is honorable. Those who feel the only way OUR flag symbol should be used is at the end of a pole might try broadening your outlook a bit. Nothing wrong with using the "Red, White & Blue" as a symbol of the USA in any respectful manner. This is not a proper forum to express your displeasure. Perhaps a more politically inclined outlet would be better than berating a small company who have no bad intentions at all.

    Great looking designs, beautifully realized! This tribute to Made in America products using Americana inspirations, such as the Betsy Ross design, is a terrific reminder of what we all need to embrace - making quality products in America in a way that's good for the community. Well done!

    @Patrick I'm a traditionalist when it comes to our flag and country -- an image of our flag is not the flag and to use the image as décor or in some other complimentary manner does show respect for the flag and what it represents that isn't limited to prescribed dates and events but on every day. If I were invited into a strangers home for some reason and saw this throw it would tell me something about the folks who lived there--and it would be very positive.

    I love the flag design. My grandfather was a WWII veteran and loved surrounding himself with patriotic images in his home, including the flag design. He would have loved this, and would have displayed it proudly in his home.

    @John @Richard @Randy

    Thus, the Flag Code does not prescribe any penalties for non-compliance nor does it include enforcement provisions; rather the Code functions simply as a guide to be voluntarily followed by civilians and civilian groups.

    http://www.senate.gov/reference/resources/pdf/RL30243.pdf

    I am a veteran and I don't find this offensive at all. I had many friends and family in which the flag is draped over their final resting spot. Is that violating the code? I find it bothersome that you choose this "retail spot" as a place to voice your opinion.

    If you don't like it don't buy it, but don't make others feel bad if they are considering purchasing this. This is what makes America great. I was extremely proud to serve my country and I appreciate those who bother to have even a small amount of patriotism. If buying this blanket gives them that, then let them have that!

    I think the blanket looks beautiful and will look great in my 1842 homestead! Wrapped around me or my children, it will remind us we are all "Made in America"

    We ALL need more items displaying the American Flag and our patriotism in our homes!

    Sorry John, you got this one wrong! It's a blanket for your home.

    The Flag flies on poles—horizontally and vertically—yes, but also it drapes the caskets of our veterans, firefighters and police; it drapes the shoulders of our victorious Olympic athletes, and yes it adorns works of art from Norman Rockwell to Warhol. I consider any work of art where the flag is presented in a respectful manner to be completely acceptable, and even as something to be encouraged. The flag is the symbol of all the people and maybe it needs to be seen a bit more. Bravo to Farm 2 Fashion for reproducing such an iconic symbol to be proudly displayed in our homes.

    @Chip

    Thank you, Chip for such lovely sentiments. Over the last several decades American manufacturing interests have deteriorated significantly and we have seen whole industries moved offshore. I hope that you agree with me that it's time we reclaimed some of the pride and satisfaction that comes with "Made in America". Farm 2 Fashion plans to be a significant player in this movement.

    @Chip @Laurie, These people who let off steam at a little company. They need to get a life. They also talk about American Pride and not disrespecting the flag. I will guess these people drive one of the following car brands: 1. Toyota, 2. Nissan, 3 Mazda, 4. Kia, 5. Hyundai, 6. Lexus, 7. Infiniti, 8. BMW, 9. Mercedes Benz. They should not preach about

    AMERICAN PRIDE and the FLAG, Because if anyone who drives one of these cars above. Please be QUITE! and do not preach here anymore Thank You! I am a Disabled Veteran.
