Pendleton Earth Blanket
In the early 1900s, photographer Edward S. Curtis created an invaluable photographic and written record of every major Native American tribe west of the Mississippi, in striking, sepia-toned images. This pattern is based on one of his photos, and embodies the elements of earth and sky. The grey triangular step pattern in the center is a mountain design, and geometric motifs symbolize wheat, grass and seed. Crosses represent the four directions: North, West, East and South.
Created exclusively for the American Indian College Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps fund scholarships for Native American students and tribal colleges. Your purchase of this USA-made blanket helps support their honorable mission.
Pure virgin wool/cotton, felt bound, unnapped and uncombed for sharper pattern definition. Provenance card included.
