Hudson's Bay point blanket is a Canadian icon. In 1779, HBC (Hudson Bay Company) commissioned the textile mill of Thomas Empson of Witney, Oxfordshire, to produce pointed blankets. During the 1800s, their warmth and durability made them a favorite of the Native peoples, traders, and pioneers. Today, these blankets are still essential gear.
