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.
This archival design is a fusion (sampler) of Native American-inspired symbols and colors. The historic pattern has its origins in a rare illustration that accompanied a line of Pendleton blankets made in 1924 (see our Where the Wool Grows Blanket #72316). In the black-and-white drawing, a Native American chief is wearing a robe that inspired our re-creation. The original design was created to appeal to Pendleton's first blanket customers, the Native American peoples of the West. The unique colors and intricately woven patterns were hallmarks of early Pendleton Trade Blankets. The stripe is woven of bands in varying widths, color combinations and traditional geometric shapes—triangles, diamonds, zigzags and more. The pattern underlines how use of color and design established Pendleton as the favorite trade blanket of the era.

Aloha to Lahaina, on the island of Maui, once the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The Lahaina Wave blanket salutes the islands and surfers, then and now. In 1779, the log of Captain Cook’s expedition ship HMS Discovery recorded the first European written description of Hawaiian surfing. By then, surfing was an art and popular sport among native Hawaiians. Chiefs or kings were proud to show their mastery of the waves, and surfing was known as the “Sport of Kings.” The design of this blanket combines traditional tribal inspired designs from the mainland with undulating waves of blue and turquoise representing the waves of the beaches near Lahaina—every surfer’s dream. The wave images are outlined in a sawtooth design that evokes the power and challenges of the surf.

The slot canyons of the American Southwest are geographic wonders with spiritual significance to local tribes. Carved over eons by streams, rivers and washes that now run dry, the canyon walls today reveal colorful layers of Navajo Sandstone and a rich geologic history. In times past, Navajo carefully entered these deep formations, mindful of the presence of the Great Spirit. Our earthy Rio Canyon design nods to this magical beauty and the subtle striations of color revealed by water moving through stone. Unnapped.

Skywalkers

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.
The Skywalkers design was inspired by Art Deco design elements of some of New York City's iconic skyscrapers such as the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. It is a salute to the skilled Native American steel workers who built some of the city's most beautiful and famous landmarks, including the George Washington Bridge and recently the new One World Trade Center. Many of the workers are from the Kahnawake Reserve near Montreal, where in 1886 the Mohawk tradition of ironworking began. Hired as unskilled laborers to build a bridge over the St. Lawrence River, the Mohawk quickly earned a reputation as top-notch, sure-footed workers on high steel. Beginning in the 1920s these daring men raised and riveted steel at dizzying heights above the city. Six generations of Mohawk and other Iroquois "skywalkers," renowned for their courage and agility, have helped shape the New York City skyline.

High atop the Big Horn Range in Wyoming sits one of the best-known medicine wheels or sacred hoops. This spoked circle of stones was created by Plains Indians between 300-800 years ago. Astronomers have noted that during the summer solstice the spokes of the wheel point to the rising and setting of the sun and four bright stars. At the center of the 80-foot, wheel-like circle is a pile of stones, or cairn, connected to the rim by spokes of stones. More cairns are found around the rim of the circle. The inner and outer cairns line up with rising stars as they appear for the first time on the horizon after being behind the sun. These appearances marked specific events such as the drought season, planting time or the end of summer.
