Shared Spirits - 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.

Astounding wall art or warm companions draped on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. However they are used, Pendleton Legendary Blankets will be admired and treasured for their intricate, intriguing patterns and execellent quality. These original, exclusive designs were inspired by Native Americans art, legends, beliefs, ceremonies and heroes. They are collectible heirlooms of tomorrow that can be used and enjoyed today.

This brilliantly colored design incorporates imagery that is universal among the tirbes rather than symbols specific to one tribe or region. the sun, moon, stars and rain clouds represent an honored relationship with the spiritual world of the cosmos. Native American reverence for the natural world is represented by both flora-corn, squash, beans and tobacco - and fauna- buffalo, bear, elk and eagle. the dynamic central image is a sacred circle filled with a cross, a universal symbols of the origin humankind and the four directions that guide us on our jounrney through life.

Each blanket has a sueded commemorative lable telling the design's story. All blankets are napped, felt bound, 82% pure virgin wool and 18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Dawn's Early Light

Dawn's Early Light
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

"O say can you see by the dawn's early light." These words were penned on the back of an envelope in 1814 by young lawyer and poet Francis Scott Key. Key was held captive on a Royal Navy ship as British ships in Chesapeake Bay bombarded Fort McHenry throughout the night. When dawn broke, the fort was still standing, the American flag still waving. It was a turning point in the war of 1812, and the birth of our national anthem, the "Star Spangled Banner." This blanket, woven in our American mills, commemorates the Bicentennial of that momentous morning in U.S. history. Fifteen red and white stripes and stars represent those on the flag at that time. Striations and imprecise images give the design a vintage American look. Napped. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

It comes to you in a dream and stays with you in death, a thing with a spirit and a story all its own. And in every basket the weaver leaves a small break in the pattern, anything from a single stitch to a new design. This is the Dau, the "door" through which a basket's spirit is allowed to pass, to inspect completed baskets and fill them with energy. Unnapped, whipstitch binding. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton.
