Pendleton Harding Robe Theme
The Classic Jacquard Collection is a collection of blankets with each having it's own unique individual design. These blankets are robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping oneself in a robe. They are impressive as wall hangings and practical when folded at the end of a bed. Felt bound unless noted or napped unless noted. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. 64" x 80" (163 x 203 cm). In 1923, President Warren Harding and his wife Florence came west to dedicate a portion of the old Oregon Trail. At the ceremony, local chiefs presented the first lady with a Pendleton shawl inspired by our famous Chief Joseph blanket. This dynamic design was an instant hit and remains in the production today.
