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.

The rare white bison occurs only once in every 10 million births. In 1933, a white buffalo wasborn in the wild on Montana's Flathead Indian Reservation and was called "Big Medicine" to reflect his sacred power. Many Native American tribes consider the return of the White Buffalo the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and the beginning of a new era for the peoples and Mother Earth. Tradition spoke of a herd of pure White Buffalo. The seven bison on this blanket represent the seven directions: North, South, East, West, Above, Below and Within. Together they symbolize wholeness for mankind adn the earth. Prayer pipes signify mankind's communication with the Creator. In the center of the blanket, within the circle of life, are the four hands representing the diverse peoples of the world and a new beginning. Shades of brown and green reflect the natural beauty of Mother Earth.
