Pendleton Blanket - Brave Star Pendleton Blanket - Brave Star

This contemporary interpretation of the American flag is a celebration of the patriotism of Native Americans. In 1875 Indian Scouts carried messages from fort to fort in the West. Native American soldiers saw action with Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders in Cuba. And soldiers from many tribes battled in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf and Iraq. Five Native Americans have been awarded the Medal of Honor for bravery “above and beyond the call of duty.” The design marries modern asymmetry and vintage Americana. The unique striations, using pulled out yarns, reflect an era when dyes were made from plants. Felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Buffalo Creation Story Pendleton Blanket - Buffalo Creation Story

Buffalos are not typically associated with Navajo culture. So when contemporary Navajo artist Andrew Hobson discovered a story of how the buffalo evolved in Navajo creation stories, he was fascinated. Hobson’s original painting of the Buffalo-Who-Never-Dies of the White Buffalo Tribe inspired this Pendleton blanket. In the tale, Buffalo became angry with Holy Man for having two buffalo women as his wives. Holy Man killed the angry buffalo with magic arrows and wands. But to his dismay, all the buffalos began to die. Then sad, Holy Man brought the buffalo back to life and showed him how to revive all the other buffalo. The central figure shows the angry buffalo fractured in pieces to symbolize his death and journey back to life. Four buffalo tribes are shown inside protective medicine hoops, and the four sacred mountain ranges of the Navajo surround the central buffalo. The artist frames the work in the abstract rainbow symbolizing his personal Yeii, or protective deity. Napped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Capps VII Pendleton Blanket - Capps VII

The Pendleton Tribute Series pays homage to the American mills that pioneered the weaving of Indian trade blankets. J. Capps and Sons of Jacksonville, Illinois, warranted an advertising testimonial from none other than "Buffalo Bill" Cody of Wild West Show fame. Capps was the first to capitalize on the Indian trade, producing blankets in the late 1800s. Most of the designs were simple yet dramatic. Capps blankets were noted for their exceptional quality. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA. 64" x 72". Napped. Felt bound.
