Shared Spirits - Legendary Collection
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.
Astounding wall art or warm companions draped on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. However they are used, Pendleton Legendary Blankets will be admired and treasured for their intricate, intriguing patterns and excellent quality. These original, exclusive designs were inspired by Native Americans art, legends, beliefs, ceremonies and heroes. They are collectible heirlooms of tomorrow that can be used and enjoyed today.
This brilliantly colored design incorporates imagery that is universal among the tribes rather than symbols specific to one tribe or region. the sun, moon, stars and rain clouds represent an honored relationship with the spiritual world of the cosmos.
