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.
