In 1909 Thomas L.Kay and his family moved to Pendleton in northeastern Oregon and took over the defunct Pendleton Woolen Mills and started there business there. Since then Pendleton has become renowned for their Native American inspired blanket designs and durable woollen shirts. Today the company is still privately owned by the family and operates across eight facilities in America.
The Pendleton Falcon Cove Blanket story stems from night falling as dancers gather on the Square Ground for the Stomp Dance. Against the dark blue of the night sky, the bright flames of Mother Fire watch over the dancers and receives their songs and prayers. With treasured turtle-shell rattles fastened to their legs, dancers begin their shuffle and stomp. The Stomp Dance lasts until morning arrives to fill the sky with colours of Dawn.
Pendleton Jacquard Blankets are robe size, which is the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. These blankets fit perfectly over a double bed, can be used for wall hangings or just for cuddling up on the sofa.
