JUST ARRIVED! (Pendleton Blanket Edition)

Pendleton was one of five major mills that produced beautiful, 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 The blankets were originally made for sale and traded to Native Americans. Inspired by authentic Indian designs that were ojects of prestige for tribal members. Later they also became popular among Americans throughout the country. This collection pays tribute to the no longer operating mills with patterns based on those produced in the early 20th century.  All of the blankets are woven in their very own Northwest mill, come with a special tribute label, and packed in a vintage-style 1920s box design from their archives. Check out two new arrivals now in shop, below.

J. Capps and Sons of Jacksonville, Illinois, warranted an advertising testimonial from none other than “Buffalo Bill” Cody of Wild West Show fame. Capps was the first to capitalize on the Indian trade, producing blankets in the late 1800s. Most of the designs were simple yet dramatic. Capps blankets were noted for their exceptional quality.  This virgin wool/cotton 80/20 blend is lightly napped with a felt binding.

Oregon City Woolen Mills was known for explosive colors and unique images, such as this dragonfly. The company was perhaps Pendleton’s biggest competitor of the era, creating an extensive range of products for more than 30 years. This “Dragonfly” pattern is a gorgeous example of one of the mill’s unusual color combinations and complex geometric designs. Lightly napped with a felt binding.
