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

t is said that Spider Woman taught the Diné (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.

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.

Diamond Ranch Quilt

Diamond Ranch Quilt
Category: Bed Collections

As the buffalo disappeared, Northern plains Indians of Montana and the Dakota replaced buffalo robes with quilts. One of their most recognizable designs is Morning Star, adapted in the late 1800s from the traditional Lone Star pattern. Covering most of the quilt top, its eight-point design was extremely difficult to create-the mosaic of tiny diamonds radiating out from the center took long hours of careful cutting, perfect placement and skillful hand-stiching. 100% cotton. Machine washable. Imported. Standard sham fits 20 in. x 26 in. pillow.

Price: $156.00

Suwanee Stripe

Suwanee Stripe
Category: Bed Collections

This colorful blanket salutes the patchwork artistry of the Seminole Indian women. From the 1700s, the Suwanee River area of what is now the southeastern United States was home to the Seminole Indian tribes. The first versions of Seminole patchwork appeared in the late 1800s and were born of necessity. When cloth was scarce, remnants of cotton bolts were cut into small strips and hand sewn into larger pieces for "strip clothing." The result was functional, wearable art. The introduction of the sewing machine during the early 20th century revolutionized Seminole patchwork. The technique flourished as tight machine stitching allowed more and more elaborate patterns. Strips of colored cloth were cut and repositioned into intricate patterns of squares, rectangles, diamonds and triangles. Brilliant colors like this sawtooth design were often contrasted with a black background. The Suwanee blanket is a tribute to the sophisticated symmetry of Seminole patchwork, an art form still practiced today. Unnapped. Sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry Clean. Made in the USA.
