Pendleton Blanket - Arapaho Trail - Indigo Pendleton Blanket - Arapaho Trail - Indigo

Our Trail Blanket is a spectacular example of a classic nine-element design. The pattern evolved from the traditional banded Chief Stripe and features three rows of three central designs. It originated with the Navajos and gained popularity among other tribes, including the Arapaho. The Arapaho were great traders – their name is thought to have come from the Pawnee word for “traders” – often exchanging furs for blankets. They traveled from Minnesota to Colorado carrying goods on travois – their version of a trailer. Travois were pulled behind dogs or a horse and consisted of two trailing poles with a net between that carried the load. The part of their route that winds from the prairie through Indian Gulch to Clear Creek Junction became known as the Arapaho Travois Trail. 64” x 80”. Napped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Basket Dance Robe Pendleton Blanket - Basket Dance Robe

Like beloved Pendleton blankets, Hopi baskets are passed from generation to generation 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 performed by women of the Lakon Society of basket weavers. The women first gather in a kiva 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. 64” x 80”. Napped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Big Medicine Pendleton Blanket - Big Medicine

The rare white bison occurs only once in every 10 million births. In 1933, a white buffalo was born in the wild on Montana’s Flathead Indian Reservation and was called “Big Medicine” to reflect his sacred power. Many Native American tribes consider the return of the White Buffalo the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and the beginning of a new era for the peoples and Mother Earth. Tradition spoke of the coming of a herd of pure White Buffalo. The seven bison on this blanket represent the seven directions: North, South, East, West, Above, Below and Within. Together they symbolize wholeness for mankind and the earth. Prayer pipes signify mankind’s communication with the Creator. In the center of the blanket, within the circle of life, are four hands representing the diverse peoples of the world and a new beginning. Shades of brown and green reflect the natural beauty of Mother Earth. Napped. Felt-bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA. 64" x 80".
