Minky Couture was established in 2009. Their owner, Sandi Sumner Hendry, started by giving fun, unique, and functional gifts to friends and family members. The blankets she gave were an instant hit. Universally loved and used daily, she decided to do a little more research on these soft, cuddly blankets. In doing so, she discovered the wonderful world of minky fabric. She started designing her own blankets, using different combinations of fabrics. Each blanket was unique, created specifically for the recipient. Family and friends started asking if they could purchase the blankets to give to their own loved ones, and Minky Couture was born.
