NIKE N7 BLANKET
Innovation meets tradition in this design collaboration with Nike’s N7 Fund, a trust whose mission is to bring sports to Native American and Aboriginal communities in the US and Canada. Nike designer Derek Roberts found inspiration in the striking patternwork of traditional Native American dress. He interpreted this by starting at the bottom of the blanket with a smaller pattern of arrows that repeats and grows in scale toward the center. The center of the blanket features the Nike N7 mark–three arrows pointing back to signify past generations, three arrows pointing forward to signify future generations and arrows in the center to represent the current generation. Sometimes appearing as triangles, these arrows also convey movement and balance. The top is a mirror image of the bottom. This USA-made blanket reverses for a positive/negative visual effect, with a black base on one side and white on the other. The result is a distinctive, monochromatic look.
A portion of your purchase will help support the American Indian College Fund (AICF), a nonprofit organization that helps fund scholarships for Native American students and tribal colleges.
