Gather Blanket in Bright Palette by Pendleton

  • Gather Blanket in Bright Palette by Pendleton - Pendleton rocks! Like the piñon tree, members of the Navajo Nation gather resources to survive an increasingly precarious water supply. This blanket design, created by Diné artist Emma Robbins, features symbols of endurance. The center motif represents a young women's bracelet set with turquoise, a stone formed by rare rains flowing through layers of rock. Above and below is a sáanii (maternal grandmother) scarf crossed by traditional sash belts used in ceremonies and childbirth. 

    Fabric is napped and combed for a softer, thicker feel. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton, with felt binding. Dry clean. Fabric woven in US mills. 80" x 64." (twin size) 

    A portion of this blanket's sales will support DigDeep's Navajo Water Project, which brings clean running water to the homes of residents across the Navajo Nation.
