Beaded Bandolier

Beaded Bandolier

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills
Category: Bed Collections

This intricately woven blanket reflects the beauty of the elaborately beaded bags crafted by the Ojibwe and other peoples of the Great lakes. The earliest Ojibwe bandolier bags were made around 1850. They were very popular through the 1930s, and a few are still made today. Bandolier bags are heavily beaded pouches with a beaded strap worn diagonally over the shoulder. Native American bandolier bags were inspired by the cartridge bags carried by European soldiers. The designs were created using European glass trade beads instead of the porcupine quills of the old days. The bags themselves were usually fashioned from cotton, wool, velvet or leather. They could be used as tobacco pouches or dance and ceremonial regalia, worn usually by men. The beadwork was done by women during the winter. When summer came, men travelled to Sioux country where a beautiful bandolier could be worth a pony in trade. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Bright River

Bright River

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills

The Bright River blanket is a brilliant interpretation of the Navajo weaving style known as the Eye Dazzler. In it vibrant color flows and indulates like sunset reflected on the waters of a Southwest river. Mesmerzing designs such as these appeared during the Transitional period (1880-1895) when Navajo weavers shifted from making blankets to crafting rugs. During that time traders introduced Germantrown yarns via the Santa Fe Railroad. The colorful, 4-ply wool yarns were produced at textile mills in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Unlike traditional handspun yarns, these new yarns boasted consistent textures and fabulours new colors from commercial aniline dyes. The encourgeed experimentation, innovation and creativity among the weavers. Intricate new designs were influnenced by the dramatic serapes woven in northern Mexico. Borrowing from the elaborate serrated diamonds of Rio Grande/Saltillo serapes, navajo weavers created eye-dazzling optical effects in brilliant new color palettes. Unnapped, whipstitch binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection

Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

For a century, Pendleton Woolen Mills has woven the legends and symbols of Native American tribes into beautiful blankets. Native Americans were our first and remain our most loyal customers. In the early 20th century, Pendleton was among the few American mills making blankets specifically for the Indian trade. A Pendleton blanket continues to signify honor and respect. For a hundred years, Native Americans have acknowledged births, deaths and major milestones and accomplishments with the gift of a Pendleton blanket.

Buffalos are not typically associated with Navajo culture. So when contemporary Navajo artist Andrew Hobson discovered a story of how the buffalo evolved in Navajo creation stories, he was fascinated. Hobson’s original painting of the Buffalo-Who-Never-Dies of the White Buffalo Tribe inspired this Pendleton blanket. In the tale, Buffalo became angry with Holy Man for having two buffalo women as his wives. Holy Man killed the angry buffalo with magic arrows and wands. But to his dismay, all the buffalos began to die. Then sad, Holy Man brought the buffalo back to life and showed him how to revive all the other buffalo. The central figure shows the angry buffalo fractured in pieces to symbolize his death and journey back to life. Four buffalo tribes are shown inside protective medicine hoops, and the four sacred mountain ranges of the Navajo surround the central buffalo. The artist frames the work in the abstract rainbow symbolizing his personal Yeii, or protective deity. Napped. Felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
