Love this OG Native American blanket from Pendleton

Sorry, our site is temporary offline for maintenance.

Two centuries ago a band of Moache Utes were awestruck by a strange glow atop Aqua Fria Peak in the Sangre de Cristos Mountains. A tribal elder declared the breathtaking sight “fire of the gods.” The phenomenon became common during the tribe’s autumnal celebration of the Great Spirit. Traveling Franciscan friars renamed the sight “fire of angels” to reflect Christian beliefs. Indian agent Kit Carson saw the “fire” at dawn and dusk during fall and winter and attributed it to the sun hitting…

BRIGHT RIVER BLANKET

BRIGHT RIVER BLANKET

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…

SERAPE

SERAPE

While the traditional serape is now very common to both Spanish and Native American textiles, it actually has its roots in the Mexican weaving tradition. Most commonly, the serape is woven of fine yarns that allow it to be lighter in weight than other blankets, with unbalanced stripes of varying widths providing the characteristic serape pattern. Pendleton's version stays true to this very classic and historic style, and can serve a multitude of purposes, from a traditional shawl to a…

COYOACAN BLANKET

Sorry, our site is temporary offline for maintenance.

This colorful blanket pattern evokes the artistic traditions of Mexico's Tehuantepec area. Indigenous women of the region were known for their distinctive Tehuana style–ethnic skirts, flowery headpieces and silver jewelry. Fanciful dresses were elaborately hand-embroidered according to Zapotec Indian traditions. Tehuana style was favored and adopted in the 1930s by acclaimed surrealist artist Frida Kahlo. The Coyoacán blanket is named for the neighborhood in which Kahlo was born, lived and…

SONORA SERAPE BLANKET

Sorry, our site is temporary offline for maintenance.

This exclusive Pendleton design combines the serape stripes of indigenous Indian weavers of the northern Mexico border state of Sonora with the more geometric motifs of familiar northern Native American designs. The vivid geometric grid overlays the unbalanced stripes that distinguish serapes from other blankets. The Sonora Serape is a stunning example of creative design combined with state-of-the-art looms and more than a century and a half of Pendleton weaving experience. Whipstitched.This…

VERDE VALLEY BLANKET

Verde Valley is called Matk’amvaha by the Northeastern Yavapai, the first human inhabitants of this valley in central Arizona. They were a hunting and gathering people, sometimes migrating to different areas to follow the ripening of edible plants. This unusual blanket design and its color (“verde” is green in Spanish) and stepped triangles reminded us of the beauty of the fertile Verde Valley, surrounded by mesas and rugged mountain peaks. This blanket is robe size, the size preferred by…

J. CAPPS AND SONS TRIBUTE #1

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 advertisin 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. This blanket is based on an original…
