What is a Capote?
The Capote is a wrap-around coat made from blankets and tied together with a sash, predominately used by Métis people during the time of the fur trade. In World War I and II, the Capote was adopted by soldiers using army blankets to shield them from cold weather. Traditionally, Capote’s were made from Hudson’s Bay blankets.
We will be using a more modern blanket from Hudson’s Bay that are made from recycled plastic bottles which are both soft, easy to clean and environmentally beneficial.

Registration is required – Space is limited to 14 people.
Blankets will be made available in the colours shown below.
