A made-in-America wool blanket in a dazzling geo pattern. It's based on a Native American legend that says a hero disguised himself as a rabbit to capture fire for his people, a victory honored in this vivid design. Reverses to pattern's opposite.
Manabozho, the Chippewa trickster hero, worried that his People were cold, and traveled to the home of an old man who hoarded fire. There, he used his magic to change into a small, shivering rabbit. The old man’s daughters took in the cold rabbit and set him by the warm hearth while their father slept. Manabozho caught a spark on his fur and raced back to share fire with his People. And so Manabozho brought fire to his People.
This pattern shows the hearth, with combs and shawls warming by the fire.
For more than 153 years, Pendleton has set the standard for American style. With six generations of family ownership, the company remains dedicated to its American heritage, authenticity and fabric craftsmanship.
Thomas Kay, a British weaver, planted the foundation of which Pendleton was built upon when he immigrated to America in 1863. Kay used his expertise in weaving to set up his own woolen mill in Salem, Oregon and his legacy lives on in Pendleton’s tweed, flannel and worsted wool apparel.
Kay’s grandsons, the three Bishop brothers, opened Pendleton Woolen Mills in the early 1900s. They joined Kay’s weaving skills with stunning Native American-inspired designs in the Pendleton Trade blanket, a benchmark for beauty and quality for over 100 years. Family-owned and operated for more than six generations, the uniquely American story of Pendleton Woolen Mills continues today.
