Great Plains

Great Plains
Category: Bed Collections

The repeated geometric designs on this subtly patterened blanket evoke the unique functional art of Plains Indians. Women of the Great Plains tribes-Sioux, Arapaho, Kiowa, Blackfoot, Cheyenne and others-created clothing, moccasins, leggings, bags and pouches made of tanned animal hides. The skins of deer, sheep, elk and buffalo were decorated with embroidery, quillwork, painting, and rawhide stitching and lacing. The pieces were sometimes embellished with beads, feathers and fringe. This decorative art using abstract geometirc designs was primarily the creative work of women. Realistic art such as the hide painting on tepees, and robes was practiced chiefly by men recording war or hunting deeds. Napped, whipstich binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Basket Dance

Basket Dance
Category: Bed Collections

Like beloved Pendleton blankets, Hopi baskets are passed from generations to generations and offered as gifts from friend to friend. These intricately woven baskets and the ceremony associated with them inspired our Basket Dance Blanket. Its design celebrates Hopi craftsmanship and traditions. A Hopi basket is offered as a sign of kinship, friendship and sharing. Autumn is the time of the Basket Dance, a harvest ceremony perfromed by women of the Lakon Society of basket weavers. The women first gather in a kiza to fast, pray and chant. They then emerge chanting and dancing while raising and lowering baskets to the four directions of the compass. Traditionally the women toss many baskets to onlookers afterward. This harvest dance of sharing and generosity ensures rain and bountiful crops the next Spring. Napped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Crow Creek Quilt

Crow Creek Quilt
Category: Bed Collections

In the early days, Plains Indians illustrated their lives and adventures on buffalo hides. As the buffalo disappeared, and paper and ink were introduced, they replaced buffalo robes with ledger drawings and later quilts. Our Crow Creek quilt recalls the pictorial imagery used in the drawings and early Sioux quilts. It depicts scenes of everyday Indian life- hunting, game birds, butterflies,deer and even a horse-drawn travoisa, a common means of transport. The lively images are surrounded by a fanciful border of flowers and birds. 100% cotton. Machine washable. Imported.

Quill Basket

Quill Basket
Category: Bed Collections

The Micmac (Mi'kmaq), a First Nations people of New England and eastern Canada, tell of a long-ago star that fell from the sky into the Atlantic Ocean and crawled to shore. The People called it "gog-wit" which means "eight-legged star fish." The image appeared on petroglyphs in Nova Scotia 500 years ago. It later became the defining motif on Micmac quilled birch basket - and the inspiration for this blanket's central element. Porcupine quills are one of the oldest forms of embellishment found on hides and baskets. The Micmac artisans were so skilled at quillwork, the French called them "Porcupine Indians." Their quill-decorated baskets set the standard for the craft, which flourished for centuries among Eastern, Great Lakes and Plains tribes. Later embroidery traditions using glass beads, which replaced quills in the mid-1800s, were built upon Micmac techniques and designs. This blanket's intricate pattern and subtle colors, woven in our American mills, are a tribute to the ancient art of quilled basketry. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Santa Fe Saxony

Santa Fe Saxony
Category: Bed Collections

It is said that Spider Woman taught the Dine(Navajo) to weave under the direction of her husband Spider Man. Generations of accomplished Navajo weavers have practiced their skill and shared their gifts with an admiring world. This intricate geometric design references a step in the evolution of Navajo weaving. The opening of the Santa Fe Trail in 1821 brought about many changes from the Classical period. By the 1860s new weaving techniques and available yarns contributed to more elaborate designs. Fine, silky-smooth 3-ply merino yarns from Saxony, Germany, were among those that were imported and began to supplement the natural fleece-colored yarns commonly seen. New yarns made possible exciting variations in colors and sophisticated patterns as seen in this blanket's elaborate terraced meanders, chevrons, zigzags, stepped diamonds and Spider Woman crosses. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Charbonneau

Charbonneau
Category: Bed Collections

This beautiful blanket, woven in our American mills, is named after Jean Baptiste Charbonneau. Jean Baptiste was the son of Shoshone guide Sacagawea and French Canadian trapper Toussaint Charbonneau. As the youngest member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition - and quite possibly the most important - he unwittingly protected it from attacks. Because women and infants were never included in war parties, Native Americans assumed the expedition was on a peaceful mission and let it pass without harm. After spending his childhood in St. Louis under the care of expedition leader Captain William Clark, Jean Baptiste lived in Europe until the lure of the American West called him home. A master of four languages, he spent nearly four decades roaming the far West as an interpreter, guide, magistrate, mountain man and gold prospector. The blanket's traditional Native American-inspired graphics honor Charbonneau's Shoshone heritage. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Diamond Desert

Diamond Desert
Category: Bed Collections

Traditional Native American geometric weaving inspired the early 1900s blanket design. Beauty and balance, order and harmony are central to the Navajo world view. In this exclusive Pendleton pattern, arrows, triangles and serrated diamonds are arranged in perfect harmony, a reflection of hozho, a Navajo word that embodies the quest for balance in life. The four strong stripes illustrate the balance and contrast between darkness and light. Diamonds represent the four sacred mountains that define the four directions and enclose the Navajo universe in the shape of a diamond. The high desert area bordered by Blanca Peak in Colorado, Mount Taylor in New Mexico, the San Francisco Peaks in Arizona and Hesperus Peak in Colorado is considered the Navajo sacred homeland. Unnapped. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Abiquiu Sunset

Abiquiu Sunset
Category: Bed Collections

On a rocky mesa above the Rio Chama in northern New Mexico sits the village of Abiquiu. Native Americans inhabited the river valley for thousands of years before the Spanish established a small town here in the early 1700s. Some historians believe Abiquiu was named after a Tewa Pueblo village that existed on the site in 1300 A.D., and there are numerous prehistoric Pueblo sites in the area. Abiquiu is thought to be the beginning of The Old Spanish Trail, linking Santa Fe and Los Angeles. In 1949, Modern artist Georgia O'Keefe was drawn to Abiquiu's mesas and mountains sculpted by wind, water and time. She lived and painted there for more than 40 years, inspired both by the landscape and Native American art and culture. This blanket, woven in our American mills, reflects the beauty of Abiquiu's natural red rock cliffs at sunset, layered in bands of color - gold, brown, purple and maroon. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
