Pendleton was one of five major mills that produced these often dazzling, geometric patterned blankets during the "golden age" of the trade blanket in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The blankets were originally made for sale and trade to Native Americans. Inspired by authentic Indian designs, they quickly became objects of prestige for tribal members and later popular among Americans throughout the country. The patterns are based on blankets produced in the early 20th century. As a longstanding contemporary of these mills, we are pleased to present this historical collection.
