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 “7 Generations” illustrates the past, present and future of the Navajo Nation. The central N7 motif represents the impact of each person (the diamond) on the three generations before and after (arrows). A storm pattern with zigzags of lightning honours heritage. Squared corners echo the Four Sacred Mountains, surrounded by a dazzler design. Steps show the path to overcoming life’s challenges. Colours inspired by traditional dyes reflect the southwestern landscape.
