Pendleton Blanket - Tamiami Trail Pendleton Blanket - Tamiami Trail

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 the 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 strips 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. 64” x 80”. Unnapped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - In Their Element Pendleton Blanket - In Their Element

Created in partnership with Jemez Pueblo artist Joe Toledo, this USA-made wool blanket is a true work of art. A watercolor painting by the artist is rendered beautifully in pure virgin wool that’s been dyed, loomed with cotton and expertly woven in Pendleton's Northwest mills.

The design represents the three elements: Earth, Air and Water. A herd of bison grazes on the Earth, offering prosperity and protection. A range of mountains stands behind, their snowy peaks covered with life-giving Water. Standing eagle feathers rise into the sky, joining together Earth, Water and Air.

Part of the Legendary Collection, this design honors stories and symbols of Native American cultures. Each year a new collector’s blanket is added to the series. 64" x 80". Napped, felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket Throw - Prairie Rush Hour Pendleton Blanket Throw - Prairie Rush Hour

The bison, often referred to as the buffalo, is the largest land mammal in North America. A big buffalo can weigh a ton (2,000 pounds!) and stand six feet tall. And they can run as fast as 35 miles an hour. Long ago millions of these mighty buffalo roamed the plains, prairies and river valleys. It was a time when there were no houses on the hills. When countless forests were green and the trees grew tall. When deer grazed by mighty rivers. Today you can see wild buffalo only in our National Parks, where they are protected. You can see one of the largest herds of wild buffalo in the United States in Yellowstone National Park. Napped, felt binding. 64 x 64 inches. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Thunder Quarrel Pendleton Blanket - Thunder Quarrel

Wind and Thunder are brothers in the sky, according to Native American legend. Long ago, they quarreled when Thunder claimed he could do good on Earth without help. Wind dispersed to the Earth's far corners, leaving Thunder behind in the still air. Thunder brought mighty storms, but without the cooling Wind, the air was hot and crops failed. He could do no good alone. Thunder called, "Brother, you are nowhere. I beg you to come back for the good of the Earth." The Wind returned, and worked with Thunder to refresh the land. In this pattern, smaller arrows represent the movement of Wind as he scatters to the end of the World. Larger arrows show his path as he returns to work with Thunder. 82% wool/18% spun cotton warp. Dry clean. Made in the USA. 64" x 80". Napped. Felt bound.
