The Bright River blanket is a brilliant interpretation of the Navajo weaving style known as the Eye Dazzler. In it vibrant color flows and undulates like sunset reflected on the waters of a Southwest river. Mesmerizing designs such as these appeared during the Transitional period (1880-1895) when Navajo weavers shifted from making blankets to crafting rugs. During that time traders introduced Germantown yarns via the Santa Fe Railroad. The colorful, 4-ply wool yarns were produced at textile mills in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Unlike traditional handspun yarns, these new yarns boasted consistent textures and fabulous new colors from commercial aniline dyes. They encouraged experimentation, innovation and creativity among the weavers. Intricate new designs were influenced by the dramatic serapes woven in northern Mexico. Borrowing from the elaborate serrated diamonds of Rio Grande/Saltillo serapes, Navajo weavers created eye-dazzling optical effects in brilliant new color palettes. Unnapped, Whipstitched.

Coyote is the protagonist of a number of Native American tales which vary from culture to culture. In some stories he is the Creator, in some a hero or messenger, in others a trickster not unlike Raven. In Zuni legend, Coyote and Eagle go hunting together. But it is too dark. When they come to a river, Coyote nearly drowns while Eagle soars across. Eventually they come to a village where the kachina spirits keep light, for whenever they need it. Coyote and Eagle borrow the box of light and go hunting. Soon curious Coyote opens the box. The moon and sun escape, taking with them the light and warmth. And that’s how Winter began. The Coyote Tale Blanket, centered with a coyote mask and surrounded by eagle feathers, captures the heart of the tale. Napped.

Rio Concho Saddle Blankets

Rio Concho Saddle Blankets
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

The Concho River in West Texas was named for the freshwater mussel shells found along its banks. Concho means "shell" in Spanish. The mussel shells were found by the Spanish who explored the area in 1540. Some say it was Franciscan Fathers who later visited the area and named the north branch of the Concho the Rio Concho or River of Shells. Today, concho refers to the embossed shell-shaped metal pieces that decorate Western belts and jewelry. These were the inspiration for this striking blanket pattern with three stylized conchos as the focal point. Unnapped, whipstitch binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

For a century, Pendleton Woolen Mills has woven the legends and symbols of Native American tribes into beautiful blankets. Native Americans were our first and remain our most loyal customers. In the early 20th century, Pendleton was among the few American mills making blankets specifically for the Indian trade. A Pendleton blanket continues to signify honor and respect.
