These dynamic blanket patterns are re-created in super-sized towels for beach, poolside or hot tub. Thirsty cotton velour is an ideal canvas for our Indigenous-inspired designs. Sheared on one side for luxurious softness, looped on the other for superior absorption.
This intricate design celebrates the pioneering spirit of our founder, weaver Thomas L. Kay, who journeyed from England to America and arrived in Oregon in 1863. It is a tribute to the generations of weavers that have continued his legacy of quality and excellence. The original blanket was discovered recently in a 19th-century European mill and included the designer's notes and calculations, handwritten neatly along the sides. Our modern Pendleton designers viewed this historic work of art with reverence and used it as inspiration for our Journey West jacquard design. The pattern underlines the universal appeal of geometric shapes and lines, images not unlike those seen in Indigenous art and often used in early Pendleton Trade Blankets. The hooked images seen inside the large diamonds are common symbols of luck and prosperity.
