Jacquard Blanket - American West
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 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.
The American West is home to trading posts and pueblos where skilled Native American artists pass on ancient family traditions. Geometric borders echo patterns found in weavings and stamped silver. These borders cross beaded bands of semiprecious stones— turquoise in all its shades, coral, opal—a tribute to the art of silver and stone jewelry. A bleached bison skull at the center serves as a reminder of the power and endurance of this dry and beautiful landscape that blooms with creativity.
