Pendleton Woolen Mills

Pendleton Woolen Mills is proud of a longstanding tradition that began with the production of beautiful wool blankets nearly a century ago. Inspired by the vivid colors and intricate designs of local and southwest Native American tribes, these blankets quickly became prized for ceremonial use, and as a standard of value and quality that continues to this day. Their exceptional quality, excellent value and lasting beauty were also highly regarded by the settlers of the area. As their popularity spread across the country, Pendleton blankets became one of the first fashion statements of the 20th century.

Pendleton continues to capture the timeless beauty and rich folklore inspired by authentic Native American designs for all to enjoy. Many of the blankets are still made in the original mill in Pendleton, Oregon. Today, however, the Pendleton tradition of quality and excellence is enhanced with the use of computer-aided design, high-speed looms and environmentally friendly manufacturing that makes production of these heirloom quality blankets even better and faster. In the spirit of the respect and friendship borne from this tradition, Pendleton salutes the inspiration behind it all - the Native American Indians. Go in Peace.

Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection

Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection
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.

Buffalos are not typically associated with Navajo culture. So when contemporary Navajo artist Andrew Hobson discovered a story of how the buffalo evolved in Navajo creation stories, he was fascinated. Hobson’s original painting of the Buffalo-Who-Never-Dies of the White Buffalo Tribe inspired this Pendleton blanket. In the tale, Buffalo became angry with Holy Man for having two buffalo women as his wives. Holy Man killed the angry buffalo with magic arrows and wands. But to his dismay, all the buffalos began to die. Then sad, Holy Man brought the buffalo back to life and showed him how to revive all the other buffalo. The central figure shows the angry buffalo fractured in pieces to symbolize his death and journey back to life. Four buffalo tribes are shown inside protective medicine hoops, and the four sacred mountain ranges of the Navajo surround the central buffalo. The artist frames the work in the abstract rainbow symbolizing his personal Yeii, or protective deity. Napped. Felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
