The Navajo call it “Tse’ Hane’,” the rock that tells a story. Two hundred-square-foot Newspaper Rock in Utah’s Canyonlands National Park is covered with rock designs that inspired this blanket.

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.

The Saxony Hills Blanket references the changing landscape of Navajo weaving in the 1800s. Spanish explorers had introduced Churro sheep to the Southwest in the late 17th century. The Churro bred by the Navajo produced a somewhat coarse, long-staple wool that was hand-spun and woven into shoulder robes or blankets, shirts and sashes. Hand-spun wool from these animals was the main source of yarn for Navajo blankets until the 1860s. Then Saxony yarns arrived in the Southwest by way of the Santa Fe Trail and later the railroad. By the mid-1900s, Saxony yarns were used by the Navajos for general weaving. The Saxony Hills Blanket incorporates traditional, geometric Navajo motifs—diamonds, stepped triangles and Spider Woman cross patterns. Unnapped.

By the end of the Seminole Wars in 1858, the Seminole population of Florida was reduced from thousands to a few hundred. Most had been driven out of Florida, but small bands remained in the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp. There they retained their culture–farming, hunting alligators and building thatch-roofed homes called chickees. They traveled in dugout canoes made from cypress logs, visiting trading posts along the Miami River with pelts and egret plumes to trade for supplies. When the first sewing machines arrived, Seminole women began making intricate colorful patchwork by sewing long strips of fabric together. In 1928 the Tamiami Trail, the highway from Tampa to Miami, opened and the Seminole saw new trade opportunities. They took advantage of the tourist market for crafts such as patchwork and palmetto dolls. Their entrepreneurial success along the Tamiami Trail is a testimony to Seminole creativity and resilience.

Beaded Bandolier

Beaded Bandolier
Category: Bed Collections

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. They were very popular through the 1930s, and a few are still made today. Bandolier bags are heavily beaded pouches with a beaded strap worn diagonally over the shoulder. Native American bandolier bags were inspired by the cartridge bags carried by European soldiers. The designs were created using European glass trade beads instead of the porcupine quills of the old days. The bags themselves were usually fashioned from cotton, wool, velvet or leather. They could be used as tobacco pouches or dance and ceremonial regalia, worn usually by men. The beadwork was done by women during the winter. When summer came, men travelled to Sioux country where a beautiful bandolier could be worth a pony in trade. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
