Hudson Bay Trading Company Blanket Foot Stool

Rust and The Wolf


We have a few variants of these foot stools and this one has been made using an old Pepsi Cola soda crate.

The cushioned top is made from vintage Hudson Bay Trading Company blankets.

These blankets were traded by the Hudson Bay Company in Canada in the 18th and 19th century and were typically exchanged to First Nations and Native Americans for beaver pelts.

Although these blankets have been made for over a century they have a great modern feel to them and would brighten up any room.

The legs are made from old cotton spools and the lids lift off enabling them to be used for storage.
