Saltillo Diamond Throw
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

This pattern echoes the influences on the Rio Grande weavers of New Mexico, who produced cotton weavings as early as 800 AD. When churro sheep arrived in the region in 1540, shepherds, spinners and weavers elevated utilitarian weaving to art through color and pattern. The Saltillo Diamond, a Mexican motif, was adopted into later Rio Grande weavings. Grande blankets were made of two strips joined in the middle by the Costura del Centro, or central seam. Napped, whipstitch trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
Note: Pattern will run vertically.

Eagle
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

Inspired by
Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell

The warrior freed the eagle, and the eagle said, "Go over the hill and you will find your gift." The warrior climbed the hill and found the horse there, with a black and white coat that matched the eagle's feathers. This story is interpreted through this blanket's traditional graphics and parfleche design elements. Unnapped.

Pendleton%20Woolen%20Mills - Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection

Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

For more than 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.
