AICF Blanket - Courage To Bloom

American Indian College Fund

Since 1990 Pendleton has been proud to support the work of the American Indian College Fund. Sales of these blankets help fund scholarships to tribal colleges and make a difference in the lives of students throughout the country. The College Fund receives royalties for each blanket sold which goes directly to provide scholarships for deserving students. 

A blanket with a story to tell, based on a work by artist Preston Singletary. The image represents Raven, a shape shifter and trickster. In the story, the old chief who lived at the head of the Nass River kept his precious treasures—the sun, the moon and the stars—in beautifully carved boxes. Raven steals the boxes and makes his escape into the night sky, carrying the sun in his mouth. The sun is a metaphor for enlightenment or knowledge. The ombred background shades meet at the center in vibrant colors of sun and light.

All these blankets comfortably fit over a double bed, or are perfect for wall hangings, folded on a sofa or as the perfect snuggling blanket.

82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Unnapped. Felt bound.

Dry clean. Made in the USA. 64" x 80" (163 x 203 cm)

 

BREXIT UPDATE FOR PENDLETON EU

Due to recent changes in the UK & EU’s trade agreements, customers living within the EU will no longer be charged VAT online on their purchases from Pendleton EU.

Please note, your order will be shipped on a DAP (Delivered at Place) service and you may be required to pay duties, taxes and local VAT on your purchase when it arrives in the destination country. Our courier, Fedex, will contact you in advance of delivering the goods. 

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.

The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.
