Racine Woolen Mills Tribute #2
The Pendleton Tribute Series pays homage to the American mills that pioneered the weaving of Indian trade blankets. Blankets from Racine Woolen Mills of Racine, Wisconsin, were notable for their excellent quality, unique color palettes and explosive images. The mills specialized in nearly square fringed blankets, also called shawls, which were worn primarily by Native American women. The hot pink color in this Pipe and Feather pictorial blanket pattern (circa 1900-1910) was common to Racine blankets. Lightly napped. Felt binding. Woven in our own Northwest mills. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA. 64" x 72".
Each blanket comes with a special tribute label and is packed in a vintage-style 1920s box design from our archives.
