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 Point Reyes Blanket is inspired by the first inhabitants of California’s Point Reyes - the peaceful Coast Miwok. The Coast Miwok lived in harmony with the seasons through gathering, fishing and hunting and used Nature’s gifts as builders and artisans. They fashioned highly sought-after trade beads from empty shells, and elaborate crown style headdresses made from flicker, the long, narrow flight feathers of a birdwing.
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.
