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.
Designed early in the 1920s, the Chief Joseph design continues to be one of Pendleton’s longest running and most popular blankets. It commemorates the heroism of one of the Northwest’s greatest Nez Perce leaders, Chief Joseph.
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.
