Artist Curtis Kulig lives in New York City, where his signature "Love Me" campaign has made him a fast-rising star in both art circles and the commercial sphere.

"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.

Skywalkers
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.
The Skywalkers design was inspired by Art Deco design elements of some of New York City's iconic skyscrapers such as the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. It is a salute to the skilled Native American steel workers who built some of the city's most beautiful and famous landmarks, including the George Washington Bridge and recently the new One World Trade Center. Many of the workers are from the Kahnawake Reserve near Montreal, where in 1886 the Mohawk tradition of ironworking began. Hired as unskilled laborers to build a bridge over the St. Lawrence River, the Mohawk quickly earned a reputation as top-notch, sure-footed workers on high steel. Beginning in the 1920s these daring men raised and riveted steel at dizzying heights above the city. Six generations of Mohawk and other Iroquois "skywalkers," renowned for their courage and agility, have helped shape the New York City skyline.

High atop the Big Horn Range in Wyoming sits one of the best-known medicine wheels or sacred hoops. This spoked circle of stones was created by Plains Indians between 300-800 years ago. Astronomers have noted that during the summer solstice the spokes of the wheel point to the rising and setting of the sun and four bright stars. At the center of the 80-foot, wheel-like circle is a pile of stones, or cairn, connected to the rim by spokes of stones. More cairns are found around the rim of the circle. The inner and outer cairns line up with rising stars as they appear for the first time on the horizon after being behind the sun. These appearances marked specific events such as the drought season, planting time or the end of summer.

By the end of the Seminole Wars in 1858, the Seminole population of Florida was reduced from thousands to a few hundred. Most had been driven out of Florida, but small bands remained in the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp. There they retained their culture - farming, hunting alligators and building thatch-roofed homes called chickees. They traveled in dugout canoes made from cypress logs, visiting trading posts along the Miami River with pelts and egret plumes to trade for supplies. When the first sewing machines arrived, Seminole women began making intricate colorful patchwork by sewing long strips of fabric together. In 1928 the Tamiami Trail, the highway from Tampa to Miami, opened and the Seminole saw new trade opportunities. They took advantage of the tourist market for crafts such as patchwork and palmetto dolls. Their entrepreneurial success along the Tamiami Trail is a testimony to Seminole creativity and resilience.

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.
This rare illustration was used to market the Pendleton Blackfoot Robe, which was made in 1924 in honor of the Blackfoot Tribe of Montana. Our weavers set to work re-creating the design. The images underline Pendleton's Northwest home and commemorate our mill in Pendleton, Oregon. Iconic images—Mount Hood, towering fir trees, a Native American encampment, a grazing flock and a blanket-wrapped chief—capture the early days of Pendleton Woolen Mills. We still have relationships with the wool growers in Eastern Oregon, although Pendleton blankets today use wool that is sourced from throughout the world. We have woven the design as close to the original as possible, keeping the tones of the black and white illustration.
