Become  Part of our Story!

Adore Designs is a brand of distinctive, handmade wearable art fashions created from Beacon's iconic Southwestern blankets. We connect you with apparel that brings you joy, expresses your creativity, and gives you a story to tell. The Adore lifestyle is influenced by the stunning design artistry of the Native American Inspired Beacon Blanket. Each unique design is paired with the vivid colors and vibrant essence of Beacon's beloved textiles. The fabric of each unforgettable garment is woven into the historic tapestry of a great American brand and its storied past, giving it a second life, and merging the past with the present.

Artisan DeeAnn Carpenter established her custom clothing brand with the notion of transforming Native American inspired vintage Beacon Blankets - circa 1920-1950 - into exclusive, museum-quality outerwear. With a distinctive cutting technique, DeeAnn expertly captures and preserves the color schemes, patterns, and pictorial designs from the blankets and turns them into exquisite garments that stand out from any other apparel on the market.


Owning an Adore Designs original means you are free-spirited and you own it. You are sophisticated in culture, art, and travel. You seek adventure and creative encounters. You are inner-directed and trust your instincts, beliefs, and acknowledge your shortcomings. You crave the uncommon and you value authenticity. You are looking for something truly exceptional.

The 2023 collection brings together the past and the present in an interwoven tapestry of artistry and fashion. Each piece carries with it a Native American inspired name that speaks to the essence of the design, in honor of the Native American designers that created the iconic Beacon masterpieces. 

Beacon Blankets was founded in 1904, and by the 1920's was the largest blanket manufacturer under one roof in the United States. The legacy of the company traced through nearly a century of American experience, until it finally closed its doors in 2002. Beacon's legendary blanket designs are diligently sought after by collectors today, because they represent a nearly lost chapter in American textile history.


In 2013, Beacon Linens, lead by former Beacon Blankets President Tedd Smith, opened its doors online seeking to revive the great American brand. Some things are hard to improve on, but modern manufacturing techniques are allowing Beacon Linens to re-create some of the classic Beacon designs. These reproduction blankets are a blend of 60% cotton, 30% acrylic and 10% poly, that provide the comfort of cotton and the warmth of acrylic that is absolutely divine. The colors available are incredible, both in bright colors and soft tones.

Beacon Sherpa Hat and Matching Cowl Cuff

"DeeAnn takes a beautiful Beacon blanket and uses her knowledge, skills and artistry to create wonderful wardrobe items. I purchased a cowl cuffelette at her booth at a festival in my town of Indian Lake, NY and enjoy wearing it so much that I ordered a custom made hat, headband and now a snazzy Sally West vest. 
I receive many compliments while wearing her specialties and she is energetic, supportive and very helpful during the steps from beginning to end of creating a unique garment that is one of a kind personally yours. I am hooked and passionate about wanting to expand my collection."

Sienna Poncho Front in Horse and Cactus Vintage Cotton Beacon.JPG

I couldn’t be more pleased with my custom-made Sienna Poncho, designed and made by DeeAnn Carpenter of Adore
Designs.     I was introduced to DeeAnn’s Beacon Blanket clothing through my sister, Martha Merchant, of Indian Lake
N.Y., who had ordered, over the years, a number of styles and pieces.   Not surprisingly, I became curious, as I used to be
in the antique and vintage business, one of my specialties being textiles.  When I saw what DeeAnn was making from old
Beacon Blankets, it blew my mind!!    What followed, of course, it was time to order a one-of-a-kind custom-made piece
of Beacon clothing for myself.           
The Sienna poncho captured everything I loved, from the design, and the earthy colors, to the pictorial scene of wild horses,
cacti, and green fences.   Another interesting fact, I was able to recognize the time period that the blanket was
made, circa 1940’s, my birthday 1945! For me, everything was right, and DeeAnn knew it!    I am now on a quest to see if
I can find more of the old Beacon Blankets.  DeeAnn is thrilled, as well, to make you a custom-made piece from
whatever YOU find.    Thank you SO much, DeeAnn !
