Way Of Life - 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.

This desing is based on the art of Jim Yellowhawk. It is a visual representation of Pte Oyate - the Buffalo Nation. For many Plains Tribes, the buffalo sustained all life. Every part of the animal was used - the meat for food, and hides for robes, tepee covers and shields. Horns were crafted into bowls and arrow points. Fat was rendered for candles and soap. Swift horses, introduced by the Spanish in the 16th century, became essential to the buffalo hunt. Napped and felt bound, 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
