Bright River

Bright River

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills

The Bright River blanket is a brilliant interpretation of the Navajo weaving style known as the Eye Dazzler. In it vibrant color flows and indulates like sunset reflected on the waters of a Southwest river. Mesmerzing 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 Germantrown yarns via the Santa Fe Railroad. The colorful, 4-ply wool yarns were produced at textile mills in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Unlike traditional handspun yarns, these new yarns boasted consistent textures and fabulours new colors from commercial aniline dyes. The encourgeed experimentation, innovation and creativity among the weavers. Intricate new designs were influnenced by the dramatic serapes woven in northern Mexico. Borrowing from the elaborate serrated diamonds of Rio Grande/Saltillo serapes, navajo weavers created eye-dazzling optical effects in brilliant new color palettes. Unnapped, whipstitch binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Celebrate the Horse - Legendary Collection

Celebrate the Horse - Legendary Collection

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

For a century, Pendleton Woolen Mills has woven the legends and symbols of Native American tribes into beautiful blankets. Native Americans were our first and remain our most loyal customers. In the early 20th century, Pendleton was among the few American mills making blankets specifically for the Indian trade. A Pendleton blanket continues to signify honor and respect. For a hundred years, Native Americans have acknowledged births, deaths and major milestones and accomplishments with the gift of a Pendleton blanket.

A brave warrior astride a swift steed thunders across the plain. Similar vivid images were painted on buffalo hides by Plains Indians in the 1800s. Our Celebrate the Horse blanket is based on a design from the Blackfoot tribe, expert horsemen who called the animal "elk-horse" for its great size. The arrival of the horse, bought to the Americans by 16th-century Spanish Conquistadors, changed forever the culture of Native Americans, encourging migration, trading, herding and hunting.

Each blanket has a sueded commemorative lable telling the design's story. All blankets are napped, felt bound, 82% pure virgin wool and 18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
