Beaded Bandolier - Blanket Robe


These blankets are robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. They are impressive as wall hangings and practical when folded on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. Felt bound. 82% pure virigin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

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. The beadwork was done by women during the winter. When summer came, men traveled to Sioux country where a beautiful bandolier could be worth a pony in trade. Unnapped.
