Legendary Collection: Each blanket comes with a label, which tells of the design or story that's depicted on the blanket.
Pendleton has been creating wool blankets with First Nations legends and symbols for over 100 years. They claim that Indigenous peoples were their first customer and continue to be some of their most loyal. These woolen blankets have been used as gifts to honor achievements or losses as long as they have been produced.
The "Celebrate the Horse" blanket is an homage to the relationship between horses and First Nations peoples that began in the 1600s by the import of horses by Spanish Conquistadores. The introduction of horses changed the culture of many Indigenous tribes, allowing for easier herding, migration and hunting. Pictured in the center of the large blanket is a warrior / hunter on horseback. This was inspired by paintings done by Plains Indians on Buffalo hides in the 1800s and specifically a design that was done by the Blackfoot tribe.
