Crow Creek Quilt

Crow Creek Quilt
Category: Bed Collections

In the early days, Plains Indians illustrated their lives and adventures on buffalo hides. As the buffalo disappeared, and paper and ink were introduced, they replaced buffalo robes with ledger drawings and later quilts. Our Crow Creek quilt recalls the pictorial imagery used in the drawings and early Sioux quilts. It depicts scenes of everyday Indian life- hunting, game birds, butterflies,deer and even a horse-drawn travoisa, a common means of transport. The lively images are surrounded by a fanciful border of flowers and birds. 100% cotton. Machine washable. Imported.

Coyoacan

Coyoacan
Category: Bed Collections

This colorful blanket pattern evokes the artistic traditions of Mexico's Tehuantepec area. Indigenous women of the region were known for their distinctive Tehuana style - ethnic skirts, flowery headpieces and silver jewelry. Fanciful dresses were elaborately hand-embroidered according to Zapotec Indian traditions. Tehuana style was favored and adopted in the 1930s by acclaimed surrealist artist Frida Kahlo. The Coyoacan blanket is named for the neighborhood in which Kahlo was born, lived and produced her most famous works. Coyoacan is one of the oldest boroughs in Mexico City and in Kahlo's day was a center of counterculture activity. Today this tranquil residential area with parks, squares and cobblestone streets remains a favorite of both bohemians and tourists. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Charbonneau

Charbonneau
Category: Bed Collections

This beautiful blanket, woven in our American mills, is named after Jean Baptiste Charbonneau. Jean Baptiste was the son of Shoshone guide Sacagawea and French Canadian trapper Toussaint Charbonneau. As the youngest member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition - and quite possibly the most important - he unwittingly protected it from attacks. Because women and infants were never included in war parties, Native Americans assumed the expedition was on a peaceful mission and let it pass without harm. After spending his childhood in St. Louis under the care of expedition leader Captain William Clark, Jean Baptiste lived in Europe until the lure of the American West called him home. A master of four languages, he spent nearly four decades roaming the far West as an interpreter, guide, magistrate, mountain man and gold prospector. The blanket's traditional Native American-inspired graphics honor Charbonneau's Shoshone heritage. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Diamond Desert

Diamond Desert
Category: Bed Collections

Traditional Native American geometric weaving inspired the early 1900s blanket design. Beauty and balance, order and harmony are central to the Navajo world view. In this exclusive Pendleton pattern, arrows, triangles and serrated diamonds are arranged in perfect harmony, a reflection of hozho, a Navajo word that embodies the quest for balance in life. The four strong stripes illustrate the balance and contrast between darkness and light. Diamonds represent the four sacred mountains that define the four directions and enclose the Navajo universe in the shape of a diamond.

Zigzag

Zigzag
Category: Bed Collections

Zigzag images recur in many Native American art forms including weaving, beadwork, pottery, basketry and even ancient rock art. The zigzag motif often represents lightning, an important symbol of change connected with rain, fertility and renewal. The snake, to many of the peoples, signifies wisdom and may be in itself a symbol of lightning. Southwestern tribes sometimes add a head and rattle tail to a zigzag line to represent lightning. In legend, lightning flashes from the beak of the Thunderbird, a symbol of salvation and divine gifts. Unnapped. sueded trim, 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

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.

Conejos

Conejos
Category: Bed Collections

In Conejos County, Colorado, there's an ancient mine known for its unique turquoise - a brilliant shade of emerald green, shot with a matrix of golden stone. In the late 1800s the pioneer settlers who plumbed its depths knew it as Manassa. But perhaps a thousand years earlier, ancient Pueblans worked the mine for its richly colored treasure - green turquoise traded by the Anasazi and used in beads and animal fetishes. In the late 1800s Navajo silversmiths began to fashion this and traditional turquoise into elegant jewelry. Today green turquoise may still be found in southwest Colorado and Nevada. And throughout the Southwest, Navajo artisans continue to create beautiful, sought-after jewelry, some from this stunning gemstone. Our brilliant green blanket commemorates the miners, stonecutters and artisans of the American West and the Native American silversmiths who still fashion these stones into jewelry and talismans. Traditional Native American directional crosses, arrows, diamond shapes and weaving patterns of Navajo, Hopi and Zuni artists are incorporated into a classic 9-element design from our archives. Unnapped. sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

North Star

North Star
Category: Bed Collections

Through the ages, a bright star in the Little Dipper has been a constant source of navigation for the peoples of Earth. The North Star appears stationary, and the Inuit call it Nuuttuittuq, the star that never moves. Paiute legend relates how a brave son named Na-Gah became the star that does not travel and the guiding light for all living creatures. Na-Gah climbed to the top of a high mountain to win his father's respect. The peak was so tall that he found himself high above all the other mountains. When his father came looking for him, he found Na-Gah stuck high on the mountain peak. Not wanting his son to die, his father turned Na-Gah into a star that shines brightly and guides all who can see him. The Native American-inspired central star and the deep colors of this blanket evoke the steady light of the North Star in the night sky. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean.

Authentic Ikat fabrics are woven by hand on narrow looms. Our jacquard loom interpretation of traditional Ikat captures the marvelous depth of color and subtlety inherent in this ancient art from.

Arrowhead

Arrowhead
Category: Bed Collections

The intricate, geometric design is created with arrow images, symbols common among Native American tribes. A bundle of five arrows represented the five founding tribes of the Iroquois League. To the Navajo, flint is a sacred stone and arrowheads are said to resemble the tips of lightning bolts thrown by Thunder. Sioux lore tells of Unktomi Tanka (a big spider) who spent his days making flint arrows for the tribe. A ticking sound in the grass indicates that a spider is busy making arrowheads. A Shasta legend relates how the people got arrowheads back in the days when arrowheads were made of pine bark instead of obsidian. Ground Squirrel tricked the arrowheads away from Obsidian Old Man and the sharp new arrows made hunting better. It's no surprise that arrowheads often signified alertness. Arrowheads are often used in designs to signify protection. Unnapped. Sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Midnight Eyes

Midnight Eyes
Category: Bed Collections

This Native American-inspired pattern, woven in our American mills, is a tribute to the creatures of the night. According to Cherokee legend, when the animals and plants were first made they were told to watch and stay awake for seven nights�just as young men sometimes fast and keep awake during their vision quest. Nearly all the animals made it through the first night, but several dropped off to sleep on the second. Each night thereafter, others nodded off until on the seventh night only the owl, the panther and a few more were still awake. These animals were given the power to see and go about in the dark, and to prey on the birds and animals that must sleep at night. The diamonds in this pattern suggest those keen nocturnal eyes that look fearlessly into the darkness and see all. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

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.

One of their most recognizable designs is Morning Star, adapted in the late 1800s from the traditional Lone Star pattern.

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.
