The second in Pendleton's Preservation Series, this wool blanket is expertly dyed, woven and hand-finished in their American mills. This vivid pattern was inspired by a Navajo child's blanket from the late Classic Period in 1870 and is based on an original weaving in The Durango Collection®, Center of Southwest Studies Collection. The crosses in this blanket pattern represent Spider Woman, a powerful teacher and benefactor in Navajo legends. Reverses for a different look.
This USA-made wool blanket is part of Pendleton's Preservation Series, a unique new collection that recreates historic weavings from across the Americas. Pendleton designers collaborate with museum curators and private collectors to select noteworthy work, establish provenance, and attribute historical textiles to the original weavers when possible. Additionally, a portion of sales will help fund Native American art and education programming and outreach at the Fort Lewis College Foundation and the Center for Southwest Studies.
This blanket is only made 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.
