Out of respect for our Native American friends and customers, Pendleton Woolen Mills has changed the name of some of its Native American-inspired blanket patterns. In the future, Pendleton will no longer employ tribal names to title its blanket patterns. When appropriate, we are pleased to give credit to the talented Native American artists who provide us with original designs, or tribes with whom we are working.
Legendary Series Blankets
Each year we add a new design to our Legendary Series honoring Native American symbols, traditions, ceremonies and beliefs. For a century, Pendleton Woolen Mills has woven the legends and symbols of Native American tribes into beautiful blankets. Native Americans were our first and remain our most loyal customers. In the early 20th century, Pendleton was among the few American mills making blankets specifically for the Indian trade. A Pendleton blanket continues to signify honor and respect. For a hundred years, Native Americans have acknowledged births, deaths and major milestones and accomplishments with the gift of a Pendleton blanket.
Astounding wall art or warm companions draped on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. However they are used, Pendleton’s Legendary Blankets will be admired and treasured for their intricate, intriguing patterns and excellent quality. This original, exclusive design was inspired by Native American art, legends, beliefs, ceremonies and heroes. It is a collectible heirloom of tomorrow that can be used and enjoyed today.
Each blanket has a sueded commemorative label telling the design’s story.
