Pendleton Blankets

A pioneer in natural wool fibers the Pendleton brand is loved by many in the tribal nation. Staying true to nature and a commitment to quality many people have turned to Pendleton Wool to stay warm this winter. Some blankets were woven or twisted from thin strips of cedar bark fiber, bird, beaver or rabbit skins. Some loomed from wild cotton colored with native dyes. From Europe came wool and still more colors for the native artists' expressions. Then came the owners from Pendleton  ® Woolen Mills in Oregon who studied the beliefs and legends behind the Indian designs, striving to capture their true spirit in blankets produced with modern machinery.

Pendleton Blankets | Pendleton® Chief Joseph Robe

Designed early in the 1920's, Pendleton's Chief Joseph blanket continues to be one of Pendleton's® most popular designs for over eight decades.

The Chief Joseph blanket is the oldest, on-going blanket produced by Pendleton® Woolen Mills. Its design is balanced with arrowheads symbolizing bravery and pointing in all directions of Mother Earth. It has a broad appeal to all people, both Indian and non-Indian alike. The Chief Joseph is a woven jacquard design that is reversible to offer two dramatically different looks. (Design is vertical on king blanket.)

The Turtle blanket is in recognition of the Iroquois Confederacy. Inspired by the Oneida, Seneca, Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga and Tuscoarora Nations, the Turtle design represents the Iroquois legend that the world was created on the shell of the Great Turtle. The Turtle was the only one with enough strength who could support the earth on its back, says the legend. And the earth grew larger until it became the whole world.

This brilliantly colored design incorporates imagery that is universal among the tribes 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 symbol of the origin of humankind and the four directions that guide us on our journey through life.

The Lakota Way of Life is a visual representation of Pte Oyate - The Buffalo Nation. For many Plains Tribes, the buffalo sustained all life. Every part of the animal was used - the meat for food, and hides for robes, teepee covers and shields. Horns were crafted into bowls and arrow points. Fat was rendered for candles and soap. Swift horses, introduced by the Spanish in the 16th century, became essential to the buffalo hunt. For the Lakota, the buffalo story is held in their breath, their songs, stories and homes. In this unique design, a Pendleton® Blanket serves as a buffalo robe, keeping the body warm and the spirit strong. The teepee and blanket strips signify the four winds, the world above and below, as well as night and day.

Throughout North American Indian folklore reflects the many stories surrounding animal spirits. Every animal has a reason for existence and a legend of how and why they are on Mother Earth. Raven is the counterpart of Coyote. Even though Raven can be an expert trickster, often fooling other animals out of food or shelter, Raven can also be a friend when other animals need help. With sharp eyes, he has a keen skill of knowing when danger lurks. Raven identifies the danger and notifies all other animals in the desert or forest to be cautious or to hide. Raven is a solid reminder and teacher of the good versus evil and is always available if there is a decision to be made. The Blanket exemplifies the black colored feathers of Raven; the red color of potential danger that surrounds him. The blanket is bordered with the Sun, Moon and Stars that are celestial facets of Raven's life.

Pendleton®'s San Miguel Blanket takes its inspiration from mid- to late-19th century Native American weaving traditions and the influence of Spanish missionaries in the Southwest. Shortly after 1860, the traditional banded Chief Stripe design evolved into what is known as the Phase III pattern. The geometric patterns that had formerly been contained within horizontal bands expanded and merged into a "nine-spot" or "nine-element" layout, often with a diamond featured as the recurring motif. At same time, the presence of Spanish missionaries became apparent, with the symbol of the cross gaining popularity -- first in the beaded designs of Plains Indians and then in Navajo weavings. Additionally, red was coming into wider use due to the availability of red dyes and red bayeta, a finely spun yarn brought by the Spanish from Mexico and Europe and traded to Navajo weavers. The San Miguel blanket interprets history and tradition with striking simplicity.
