This archival design is a fusion (sampler) of Native American-inspired symbols and colors. The historic pattern has its origins in a rare illustration that accompanied a line of Pendleton blankets made in 1924. In the black-and-white drawing, a Native American chief is wearing a robe that inspired our re-creation. The original design was created to appeal to Pendleton's first blanket customers, the Native American peoples of the West. The unique colors and intricately woven patterns were hallmarks of early Pendleton Trade Blankets. The stripe is woven of bands in varying widths, color combinations and traditional geometric shapes-triangles, diamonds, zigzags and more. The pattern underlines how use of color and design established Pendleton as the favorite trade blanket of the era. . These blankets are the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping around oneself as a robe. They are impressive as wall hangings and practical when folded on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. Felt bound, 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in USA. Unnapped. 64" x 80"
