Traditional Native American geometric weaving inspired the early 1900s blanket design. Beauty and balance, order and harmony are central to the Navajo world view.

The four strong stripes illustrate the balance and contrast between darkness and light.

Supernova

Supernova
Category: Bed Collections

An ancient exploding star or supernova is thought to be recorded on Native American rock art. In the summer of 1054 AD, a new star as bright as the full moon appeared for nearly a month. The event was recorded in Chinese, Japanese and Arab documents. And some believe Native Americans in the Southwest observed the event. Scientists have hypothesized that a pictograph of a crescent moon and blazing star on the walls of a cave in Chaco Canyon in New Mexico might represent this supernova. The images created by the Western Anazasi appear to show the conjunction of the Moon and the first appearance of the supernova on July 5, 1054 AD. On that date just before dawn, the new supernova and a crescent moon would have appeared very near each other in the sky over Chaco Canyon. The star-like images on our Supernova blanket were inspired by the art of these ancient sky watchers. Unnapped, whipstitch binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Heroic Chief

Heroic Chief
Category: Bed Collections

A striking silhouette of a Native American Chief is the central image of this unique, circa 1920s design. The original, vintage blanket was discovered and sent to us by Indian trade blanket collector and author Barry Friedman. We are delighted to reproduce this fascinating blanket. The feathered headdress was a ceremonial war bonnet worn only by chiefs and warriors. The war bonnet was common among Plains Indian men - Sioux, Crow, Blackfeet, Cheyenne and Cree - but was seldom worn on the battlefield. Reserved for formal occasions, the golden eagle-feather war bonnet was a spiritual symbol of a man's courage and honor. It was a sign of respect that could be bestowed only by the tribe's elders. The bonnet was also believed to protect the wearer. Later, other Native American tribes adopted the headdress as simply a sign of authority and perhaps as a nod to tourism. Today, a brave or good deed may still be rewarded with an eagle feather. Napped, felt binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Chinle

Chinle
Category: Bed Collections

The Pendleton Chinle Blanket is woven in Chinle Revival style of Navajo rugs. The rugs were originally named for a trading post town in Arizona, near Canyon de Chelly in the heart of the Navajo Nation. In the 1920s, weavers in the Chinle region revived the banded patterns of the Clasic and Late Classic era of Navajo designs of the late 1880s. The revival rugs used nontraditional colors from vegetal dyes. Chinle weavings were traditionally borderless with horizontal bands of plain stripes alternating with bands of geometric designs. Chevrons, diamonds and stylized squash blossoms were common motifs. The revival rugs became popular, and the Chinle Revival style weaving soon spread to neighboring areas in Arizona and New Mexico. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% Wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
