Celebrate the Horse

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.
