Jacquard Blanket Robe - Los Lunas
These traditional wool blankets from Pendleton are robe size, making them large enough to be worn, wrapped around oneself for warmth and weather protection. These blankets fit perfectly over a double bed, can be used for wall hangings or just for cuddling up on the sofa.
From Pendleton: “Colourful bands of multi-directional arrows symbolise the routes of people who made petroglyphs—carvings on rock walls—to record their specific cultures and journeys through the area now known as Los Lunas. This small New Mexico town is neighbour to Laguna Pueblo, the Rio Grande Valley, and Hidden Mountain. The area’s abundant petroglyphs include figures seen nowhere else in the Americas. The carvings on Pueblo land are protected and treasured as centuries-old messages from the past.”

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Pendleton's family history in Oregon dates back to 1863 when Thomas Kay, a young English weaver opened his own mill in Salem, Oregon. In 1909 Thomas's three grandsons, Clarence Morton Bishop, Royal Thomas Bishop, and Robert Chauncey Bishop opened Pendleton Woolen Mills. Six generations later Pendleton Woolen Mills is still run in Oregon by the Bishop family.
