Askutasquash

Askutasquash

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills
Category: Bed Collections

The central image on this design showcases images reminiscent of the squash blossom beadwork crafted by Native American jewelry makers of the Southwest. The iconic "squash blossom" necklace first appeared in the 1880s. Some say the squash blossom bead design is directly connected to the importance of the plant itself. Others say it is simply a pleasing design element, perhaps inspired by the buttons on pants worn by the Spanish and Mexican horsemen. Regardless, there is no denying the importance of squash to numerous Native American farmers. The word is from Narragansett Indians of Rhode Island. They used the word askutasquash which meant "eaten raw or uncooked." Different kinds of squash were grown as food by numerous tribes. It was the first of the "three sisters" (squash, corn and beans) to be domesticated. Beautiful bead design or flower of sustaining crop, the squash blossom deserves celebrating. Napped, suded trim, 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Bright River - Blanket Robe

Bright River - Blanket Robe

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

The Bright River blanket is a brilliant interpretation of the Navajo weaving style known as the Eye Dazzler. In it vibrant color flows and undulates like sunset reflected on the waters of a Southwest river. Mesmerizing 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 Germantown 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 fabulous new colors from commercial aniline dyes. They encouraged experimentation, innovation and creativity among the weavers. Intricate new designs were influenced 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, Whipstitched.

Creation Turtle - Legendary Collection

Creation Turtle - Legendary Collection

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

For more than 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.

The Turtle blanket is in recognition of the Iroquois Confederacy. Inspired by the Oneida, Seneca, Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga and Tuscoarora Nations, the Turtle design represents the Iroquois legend that the world was created on the shell of the Great Turtle. The Turtle was the only one with enough strength who could support the earth on its back, says the legend. And the earth grew larger until it became the whole world. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton warp. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
