This very early weaving is contemporary with the Ute-style First Phase Chief blanket. This unusual early sarape combined the simple striped and terraced stepped design elements in use at the time without incorporating red bayeta yarns. Woven of indigo-dyed blue, indigo with vegetal-dyed green, and natural white hand- spun churro wool yarns. The color scheme suggests a Rio Grande Valley influence. Based on an original weaving in The Durango Collection® (DC-NC-43), Center of Southwest Studies Collection #2000:03007
These designs are inspired by historic weavings from across the Americas. Pendleton designers work with museum curators and private collectors to select noteworthy work, establish provenance, and attribute historical textiles to the original weavers when possible. The descriptions below are from curator notes and refer to the original weavings. Each blanket generates a donation to Native American arts, education and health

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.
