Pendleton Blanket - Askutasquash Pendleton Blanket - Askutasquash

The central image on this design showcases images reminiscent of the squash blossom beadwork crafted by Native American jewelry makers of the Southwest. The iconic "squash blossom" necklace first appeared in the 1880s. Some say the squash blossom bead design is directly connected to the importance of the plant itself. Others say it is simply a pleasing design element, perhaps inspired by the buttons on pants worn by the Spanish and Mexican horsemen. Regardless, there is no denying the importance of squash to numerous Native American farmers. The word is from Narragansett Indians of Rhode Island. They used the word askutasquash which meant "eaten raw or uncooked." Different kinds of squash were grown as food by numerous tribes. It was the first of the "three sisters" (squash, corn and beans) to be domesticated. Beautiful bead design or flower of sustaining crop, the squash blossom deserves celebrating. 64” x 80”. Napped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Beaded Bandolier Pendleton Blanket - Beaded Bandolier

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 traveled to Sioux country where a beautiful bandolier could be worth a pony in trade. 64” x 80”. Unnapped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
