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.

Crow Creek Quilt

Crow Creek Quilt
Category: Bed Collections

In the early days, Plains Indians illustrated their lives and adventures on buffalo hides. As the buffalo disappeared, and paper and ink were introduced, they replaced buffalo robes with ledger drawings and later quilts. Our Crow Creek quilt recalls the pictorial imagery used in the drawings and early Sioux quilts. It depicts scenes of everyday Indian life- hunting, game birds, butterflies,deer and even a horse-drawn travoisa, a common means of transport. The lively images are surrounded by a fanciful border of flowers and birds. 100% cotton. Machine washable. Imported.

Coyoacan

Coyoacan
Category: Bed Collections

This colorful blanket pattern evokes the artistic traditions of Mexico's Tehuantepec area. Indigenous women of the region were known for their distinctive Tehuana style - ethnic skirts, flowery headpieces and silver jewelry. Fanciful dresses were elaborately hand-embroidered according to Zapotec Indian traditions. Tehuana style was favored and adopted in the 1930s by acclaimed surrealist artist Frida Kahlo. The Coyoacan blanket is named for the neighborhood in which Kahlo was born, lived and produced her most famous works. Coyoacan is one of the oldest boroughs in Mexico City and in Kahlo's day was a center of counterculture activity. Today this tranquil residential area with parks, squares and cobblestone streets remains a favorite of both bohemians and tourists. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Charbonneau

Charbonneau
Category: Bed Collections

This beautiful blanket, woven in our American mills, is named after Jean Baptiste Charbonneau. Jean Baptiste was the son of Shoshone guide Sacagawea and French Canadian trapper Toussaint Charbonneau. As the youngest member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition - and quite possibly the most important - he unwittingly protected it from attacks. Because women and infants were never included in war parties, Native Americans assumed the expedition was on a peaceful mission and let it pass without harm. After spending his childhood in St. Louis under the care of expedition leader Captain William Clark, Jean Baptiste lived in Europe until the lure of the American West called him home. A master of four languages, he spent nearly four decades roaming the far West as an interpreter, guide, magistrate, mountain man and gold prospector. The blanket's traditional Native American-inspired graphics honor Charbonneau's Shoshone heritage. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Diamond Desert

Diamond Desert
Category: Bed Collections

Traditional Native American geometric weaving inspired the early 1900s blanket design. Beauty and balance, order and harmony are central to the Navajo world view. In this exclusive Pendleton pattern, arrows, triangles and serrated diamonds are arranged in perfect harmony, a reflection of hozho, a Navajo word that embodies the quest for balance in life. The four strong stripes illustrate the balance and contrast between darkness and light. Diamonds represent the four sacred mountains that define the four directions and enclose the Navajo universe in the shape of a diamond. The high desert area bordered by Blanca Peak in Colorado, Mount Taylor in New Mexico, the San Francisco Peaks in Arizona and Hesperus Peak in Colorado is considered the Navajo sacred homeland.

Zigzag

Zigzag

Zigzag images recur in many Native American art forms including weaving, beadwork, pottery, basketry and even ancient rock art. The zigzag motif often represents lightning, an important symbol of change connected with rain, fertility and renewal. The snake, to many of the peoples, signifies wisdom and may be in itself a symbol of lightning. Southwestern tribes sometimes add a head and rattle tail to a zigzag line to represent lightning.

Supernova

Supernova
Category: Bed Collections

An ancient exploding star or supernova is thought to be recorded on Native American rock art. In the summer of 1054 AD, a new star as bright as the full moon appeared for nearly a month. The event was recorded in Chinese, Japanese and Arab documents. And some believe Native Americans in the Southwest observed the event. Scientists have hypothesized that a pictograph of a crescent moon and blazing star on the walls of a cave in Chaco Canyon in New Mexico might represent this supernova. The images created by the Western Anazasi appear to show the conjunction of the Moon and the first appearance of the supernova on July 5, 1054 AD. On that date just before dawn, the new supernova and a crescent moon would have appeared very near each other in the sky over Chaco Canyon. The star-like images on our Supernova blanket were inspired by the art of these ancient sky watchers. Unnapped, whipstitch binding. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
