Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

These blankets are robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. They are impressive as wall hangings and practical when folded on a sofa or at the foot of a bed.
"Regardless of the medium, my work directly relates to and honors my ancestors, my people, the environment and the animals." Lillian Pitt Lillian Pitt designed this blanket exclusively for Pendleton. She was inspired by petroglyphs in the Columbia River Gorge and Central Oregon. Her ancestors lived in the Gorge for more than 10,000 years until the mid-1800s. They called themselves the River People, and they called the Columbia River simply Big River or the Nch'i-Wana. The repeated patterns on the River People blanket are known as the Salmon Gill design. Colors reflect the blue of the mighty river and the hues of rocky canyon walls from which the natives fished. The design represents the various life stages of the salmon's migratory life cycle and the River People who depended upon the fish for sustenance.

The Saxony Hills Blanket references the changing landscape of Navajo weaving in the 1800s. Spanish explorers had introduced Churro sheep to the Southwest in the late 17th century. The Churro bred by the Navajo produced a somewhat coarse, long-staple wool that was hand-spun and woven into shoulder robes or blankets, shirts and sashes. Hand-spun wool from these animals was the main source of yarn for Navajo blankets until the 1860s. Then Saxony yarns arrived in the Southwest by way of the Santa Fe Trail and later the railroad. By the mid-1900s, Saxony yarns were used by the Navajos for general weaving. The Saxony Hills Blanket incorporates traditional, geometric Navajo motifs - diamonds, stepped triangles and Spider Woman cross patterns. Unnapped.
