The “Better Together” blanket is inspired by the power of unity and diversity seen within humanity. The colors are an ode to the range of skin tones represented by different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Better Together emphasizes the strength in community and by existence opposes division. It is meant to be inclusive, yet set apart. It does not negate individual identities for the sake of unity, but rather celebrates it.
