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.

Compass Stripe

Compass Stripe
Category: Bed Collections

The directional cross, symbolizing the four cardinal directions, is the defining element in our Compass Stripe blanket. Powers and teachings are ascribed to each direction both literally and symbolically in many Native American cultures. The Lakota assign the seasons - spring comes from the East bringing enlightenment; summer from the South with innocence, fall from the West with power and winter from the North with wisdom. The Apache attribute earth, air, water and fire as well as ancestral spirits and animal totems to the directions. To the Navajo, dawn in the East is our thinking direction, South our planning direction. West is living and acting on our thoughts. The North is a source of satisfaction, it's where we evaluate what we began in the East and decide whether we are on the right path. When these elements are in balance, as in this pattern, all is well with the world. Napped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

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.

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. Made in the USA.

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.

Newspaper Rock

Newspaper Rock
Category: Bed Collections

The Navajo call it "Tse Hane'," the rock that tells a stroy Two hundred-square-foot Newspaper Rock in Utah's Canyonlands National Park is covered with rock designs that inspired this blaket. The earliest symbols were carved as many as 2,000 years ago. Over the centuries, Fremont, Anasazi, Navajo and Ute cultures carved figures and shapes into the "desert varnish," a blackish manganese-iron deposit that gradually forms on explosed sanstone. The black rock was an invitation to creativity. As the sharp tools of ancient artists chipped away, the pale rock beneath was revealed. Hundreds of images can be seen in these stories made in stone. The petroglyphs feature a mixture of human, animal and abstract forms. Depictions of deer, pronghorn antelope and human hands on the blanket let us imagine the hunters, the stories, the messages and the news of thsose days long gone. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Tamiami Trail

Tamiami Trail
Category: Bed Collections

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 ther 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 stropes 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. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Saxony Hills

Saxony Hills
Category: Bed Collections

The Saxony Hills Blankets reference 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 blanets until the 1860s. Then Saxony yarns arrived in the Southwest by way of the Santa Fe Trail and later the railroad. These fine 3-ply yarns spun from the wool of merino sheep were produced in Saxony, a former German state, and in England, France, and New England. By the mid-1900s, Saxony yarns were used by the Navajos for general weaving. The Saxony Hills Blanket incorportates traditional, geometric Navajo motifs-diamonds, stepped triangles and Spider Woman cross patterns. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Great Plains

Great Plains
Category: Bed Collections

The repeated geometric designs on this subtly patterened blanket evoke the unique functional art of Plains Indians. Women of the Great Plains tribes-Sioux, Arapaho, Kiowa, Blackfoot, Cheyenne and others-created clothing, moccasins, leggings, bags and pouches made of tanned animal hides. The skins of deer, sheep, elk and buffalo were decorated with embroidery, quillwork, painting, and rawhide stitching and lacing. The pieces were sometimes embellished with beads, feathers and fringe. This decorative art using abstract geometirc designs was primarily the creative work of women. Realistic art such as the hide painting on tepees, and robes was practiced chiefly by men recording war or hunting deeds. Napped, whipstich binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Basket Dance

Basket Dance
Category: Bed Collections

Like beloved Pendleton blankets, Hopi baskets are passed from generations to generations and offered as gifts from friend to friend. These intricately woven baskets and the ceremony associated with them inspired our Basket Dance Blanket. Its design celebrates Hopi craftsmanship and traditions. A Hopi basket is offered as a sign of kinship, friendship and sharing. Autumn is the time of the Basket Dance, a harvest ceremony perfromed by women of the Lakon Society of basket weavers. The women first gather in a kiza to fast, pray and chant. They then emerge chanting and dancing while raising and lowering baskets to the four directions of the compass. Traditionally the women toss many baskets to onlookers afterward. This harvest dance of sharing and generosity ensures rain and bountiful crops the next Spring.

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.

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.

Diamond Ranch Quilt

Diamond Ranch Quilt

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.

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�¢ï¿½ï¿½just 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.

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.
