HBC Iconic Multi Stripe Point Blanket 8 Point King


Hudson Bay Company

For well over two centuries, the Hudson’s Bay point blanket has been a Canadian icon associated with legends of exploration and the development of the nation. Since 1780, Hudson’s Bay Company has commissioned and marketed these fine English-made woolen blankets. These blankets are heirlooms, that can be passed on from one generation to the next. The points, or small black bars on the side of the blanket, signified the size, and therefore the value, of the blanket when offered for trade with the first nations of North America.

The primary colours first became popular in the reign of Queen Anne (1702-1714). First commissioned by HBC in 1800, the multi stripe has never been put out of production since. It is the most popular colour way of all the HBC point blankets, past or present. Over time it has become the product most identified with HBC, and by extension Canada.
