Spring - Legendary Collection

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.

The Spring Legendary blanket is based on an original design by Chickasaw artist Dustin Mater. The blanket is rich with symbolism common to several tribes of the Mississippian/Muskegon culture of the Southeastern United States. Mater's design represents the annual rebirth of the earth through the spring rains. The vivid shade of green signifies a fresh beginning and the promise of new life and prosperity. Central to the piece is a spiral, illustrating the human soul and its cycle. Another important symbol is the pashofa paddle. This long wooden tool is used to stir pashofa, a traditional hominy dish central to the Chickasaw diet and cultural tradition of food and community gathering. Woodpecker eyes are emblematic of good luck, happiness and wealth. Napped and felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
