These Pendleton Pueblo Dwelling blankets are robe size, which is the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. These blankets fit perfectly over a double bed, can be used for wall hangings or just for cuddling up on the sofa.
In 1935, this early Pendleton blanket was photographed at Kewa Pueblo, then known as Santo Domingo Pueblo. Named for Rio Chama (Flame River) a tributary to the Rio Grande of Chama Wilderness Canyon.
Pendleton history, made new again. From our archives we have chosen to re-introduce these enduring designs, sure to be just as cherished today as when we first created them. Dating back as far as 1896, each blanket in the Heritage Collection illustrates the geometric motifs and weaving expertise that quickly became a Pendleton hallmark. An unnapped finish preserves the blanket’s authenticity.
