Coyoacan

Coyoacan

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills
Category: Bed Collections

This colorful blanket pattern evokes the artistic traditions of Mexico's Tehuantepec area. Indigenous women of the region were known for their distinctive Tehuana style - ethnic skirts, flowery headpieces and silver jewelry. Fanciful dresses were elaborately hand-embroidered according to Zapotec Indian traditions. Tehuana style was favored and adopted in the 1930s by acclaimed surrealist artist Frida Kahlo. The Coyoacan blanket is named for the neighborhood in which Kahlo was born, lived and produced her most famous works. Coyoacan is one of the oldest boroughs in Mexico City and in Kahlo's day was a center of counterculture activity. Today this tranquil residential area with parks, squares and cobblestone streets remains a favorite of both bohemians and tourists. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Price: $239.00

Coyote is the protagonist of a number of Native American tales which vary from culture to culture. In some stories he is the Creator, in some a hero or messenger, in others a trickster not unlike Raven. In Zuni legend, Coyote and Eagle go hunting together. But it is too dark. When they come to a river, Coyote nearly drowns while Eagle soars across. Eventually they come to a village where the kachina spirits keep light, for whenever they need it. Coyote and Eagle borrow the box of light and go hunting. Soon curious Coyote opens the box. The moon and sun escape, taking with them the light and warmth. And that’s how Winter began. The Coyote Tale Blanket, centered with a coyote mask and surrounded by eagle feathers, captures the heart of the tale. Napped.

Creation Turtle - Legendary Collection

Creation Turtle - 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.

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.

Dawn's Early Light

Dawn's Early Light

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

"O say can you see by the dawn's early light." These words were penned on the back of an envelope in 1814 by young lawyer and poet Francis Scott Key. Key was held captive on a Royal Navy ship as British ships in Chesapeake Bay bombarded Fort McHenry throughout the night. When dawn broke, the fort was still standing, the American flag still waving. It was a turning point in the war of 1812, and the birth of our national anthem, the "Star Spangled Banner." This blanket, woven in our American mills, commemorates the Bicentennial of that momentous morning in U.S. history. Fifteen red and white stripes and stars represent those on the flag at that time. Striations and imprecise images give the design a vintage American look. Napped. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
