The Pendleton Chinle Blanket is woven in Chinle Revival style of Navajo rugs. The rugs were originally named for a trading post town in Arizona, near Canyon de Chelly in the heart of the Navajo Nation. In the 1920s, weavers in the Chinle region revived the banded patterns of the Clasic and Late Classic era of Navajo designs of the late 1880s. The revival rugs used nontraditional colors from vegetal dyes. Chinle weavings were traditionally borderless with horizontal bands of plain stripes alternating with bands of geometric designs. Chevrons, diamonds and stylized squash blossoms were common motifs. The revival rugs became popular, and the Chinle Revival style weaving soon spread to neighboring areas in Arizona and New Mexico. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% Wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
