Tamiami Trail

Tamiami Trail

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills
Category: Bed Collections

By the end of the Seminole Wars in 1858, the Seminole population of Florida was reduced from thousands to a few hundred. Most had been driven out of Florida but small bands remained in the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp. There they retained their culture-farming, hunting alligators and building thatch-roofed homes called chickees. They traveled in dugout canoes made from cypress logs, visiting trading posts along ther Miami River with pelts and egret plumes to trade for supplies. When the first sewing machines arrived, Seminole women began making intricate colorful patchwork by sewing long stropes of fabric together. In 1928, the Tamiami trail, the highway from tampa to Miami, opened and the Seminole saw new trade opportunities. They took advantage of the tourist market for crafts such as patchwork and palmetto dolls. Their entrepreneurial success along the Tamiami Trail is a testimony to Seminole creativity and resilience. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Way Of Life - Legendary Collection

Way Of Life - 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.

This desing is based on the art of Jim Yellowhawk. It is a visual representation of Pte Oyate - the Buffalo Nation. For many Plains Tribes, the buffalo sustained all life. Every part of the animal was used - the meat for food, and hides for robes, tepee covers and shields. Horns were crafted into bowls and arrow points. Fat was rendered for candles and soap. Swift horses, introduced by the Spanish in the 16th century, became essential to the buffalo hunt. Napped and felt bound, 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

This rare illustration was used to market the Pendleton Blackfoot Robe, which was made in 1924 in honor of the Blackfoot Tribe of Montana. Our weavers set to work re-creating the design. The images underline Pendleton's Northwest home and commemorate our mill in Pendleton, Oregon. Iconic images—Mount Hood, towering fir trees, a Native American encampment, a grazing flock and a blanket-wrapped chief—capture the early days of Pendleton Woolen Mills. We still have relationships with the wool growers in Eastern Oregon, although Pendleton blankets today use wool that is sourced from throughout the world. We have woven the design as close to the original as possible, keeping the tones of the black and white illustration.
