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 Silver Bark blanket brings to life the early age of Pendleton blankets, circa 1920, and features stylised arrows, stars, diamonds and waterbug motifs.With colours inspired by the white and grey bark of the Aspen trees against the blue sky, this blanket was re-discovered by an ardent collector. The blanket is cherished for the muted colours that give it an instantly well-worn look of a much older blanket. Silver Bark brings the sky and earth together in a classic Pendleton blanket design.
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.
