Pendleton Blankets


In Oregon in the early 1900s, Joe Rawnsley, a weaver for Pendleton, spent time with local tribes to learn about the colours and patterns they used in textiles.

With this knowledge, he made blankets to sell to and trade with them. Since then these patterns have become part of the design history of the West.
