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 owned by the family and all blankets are proudly made in Pendleton, Oregon.
The Pendleton AICF Blanket collection are made for the American Indian College Fund, where Pendleton support their work. The sales from these blankets help fund scholarships to colleges and make a huge difference to the Native American community students around the USA.
The Gift of the Earth blanket is inspired by the Hopi community, who have a sacred relationship with the ancient caretaker of the earth, Maasaw, and respect every gift given to them. The clame they and their ancestors have sourced from the land for centuries is treated with the utmost regard. Because of this, the Hopi people maintain a beautiful and unique pottery tradition on the mesas in Arizona. This blanket draws on the design elements from these brilliant pieces as a testament to learning from the past while moving into the future.
All these Pendleton blankets comfortably fit over a double bed, or are perfect for wall hangings, folded on a sofa or as the perfect snuggling blanket.
