This banded robe blanket from the Pendleton Woolen Mills' archives first debuted in 1904. It was offered again in 1920, during the Golden Age of the Native American Trade Blanket. It's sawtooth pattern of mountain peaks and crooked rivers represents the landscape of central Oregon's Ochoco Mountains. This area, home to bald eagles, hawks and falcons, was once a travel route and hunting grounds for the Shoshone/Pauite people. Reverses for two dramatically different looks.
This blanket is made only in Robe size (64" x 80"), the size preferred by Native Americans for gifting and ceremonial purposes. A Robe size blanket fits a twin or full-size bed, and works well as a throw, a wearable wrap, wall hanging, or folded at the foot of a bed.
