Casco Bay Blanket
We create our Dye Sublimated Casco Bay Blanket with the Mainer in mind. Each of the blankets are created one at a time using the dye sublimation process. The Dye-sublimation process works by penetrating the surface of the fabric with ink. Dye-sublimation printing yields beautiful and permanent colors that are embedded in the fabric, rather than printed on the surface. Images on fabric won't fade or crack even after multiple washings.
Perfect gift for people who loves being a Mainer. With love from our studio in Westbrook, Maine.

Smaller blankets are sometimes referred to as throw blankets, throws are just one type of blanket. Blankets can be any type of cover designed to provide warmth, and while throws are technically blankets, not all blankets are throws.
There are two theories on the origin of the name "Casco Bay". Aucocisco is the Abenaki name for the bay, which means 'place of herons' (sometimes translated as 'muddy'). The Portuguese explorer Estêvão Gomes, mapped the Maine coast in 1525 and named the bay "Bahía de Cascos" (Bay of Helmets, based on the shape of the bay).
The first settlement in Casco Bay was that of Capt. Christopher Levett, an English explorer, who built a house on House Island in 1623–24. The first permanent settlement of the bay was named Casco; despite changing names throughout history, that settlement remains the largest city in the Casco Bay region, now called the city of Portland, Maine
It was first reported in 1700 by Colonel Wolfgang William Römer, an English military engineer, that there were "as many islands as there are days in the year". The United States Coastal Pilot lists 136 islands, leading to the bay's islands being called the Calendar Islands based on the popular myth there are 365 of them. Later, Robert M. York, the former Maine state historian said there are "little more than two hundred islands".
Maine was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state on March 15, 1820.
