Additional Information

This intriguing blanket is based on a work by internationally renowned glass artist Preston Singletary. Mr. Singletary grew up in the Pacific Northwest—both of his great-grandparents were full-blooded Tlingit Indians. His works explore traditional images and legends of his Tlingit heritage translated into glass. The image on this blanket represents Raven, a shape shifter and trickster who often employed crafty schemes to achieve his goals. In the story, the old chief who lived at the head of the Nass River kept his precious treasure—the sun, the moon and the stars—in beautifully carved boxes. Raven steals the light, and making his escape carries the sun in his mouth. The sun is a metaphor for enlightenment or knowledge. The ombred background shades meet in the center in vibrant colors of sun and light. Mr. Singletary’s artworks are included in museum collections from the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC to the Handelsbanken in Stockholm, Sweden. He is a member of the Board of Trustees for the Seattle Art Museum.

A portion of the proceeds from this blanket will be donated to the American Indian College Fund (AICF) to help support tribal colleges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful We purchased this blanket as a group gift for our child’s public school teacher. We are in the PNW and the curriculum was filled with lessons about our local tribes and their cultures and traditions. The colors are vibrant and absolutely beautiful. Also happy that the purchase supports the AICF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning design and colors. Happy to support the fund. The blanket was even nicer than the photos online can show. Stunning colors, and the beautiful NW coast design style is an interesting and refreshing variation on the established and well-loved more familiar native themed blankets. Love the story behind the design. The unnapped finish is likely to keep the design sharp for a long time. Warm, comfy, perfect.Glad you honored the designer Mr. Singletary. Also feels great to pay a little more and support the American Indian College Fund. That's the right thing to do. Nice job Pendleton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This blanket was a gift for a friend and when he opened it, it was packaged so neatly. When we unfolded it, the colors were so gorgeous (front and back). This blanket is thin enough to carry on trips but being 82% wool, it was so perfectly cozy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colors I received this blanket in the mail earlier today and I have to say it's everything I hoped for. It feels thinner than my North Star (napped) however, it is the same weight and provides the same level of warmth. The colors are amazing and I'm very happy with the purchase
