Pendleton Preservation Series Navajo Serape Blanket 163x203cm

Regular price $1,179.95

This very early weaving is contemporary with the Ute-style First Phase Chief blanket. This unusual early sarape combined the simple striped and terraced stepped design elements in use at the time without incorporating red bayeta yarns. Woven of indigo-dyed blue, indigo with vegetal-dyed green, and natural white hand- spun churro wool yarns. The colour scheme suggests a Rio Grande Valley influence. Based on an original weaving in The Durango Collection®, Centre of Southwest Studies

Preservation Series.

These designs are inspired by historic weavings from across the Americas. Pendleton designers work with museum curators and private collectors to select noteworthy work, establish provenance, and attribute historical textiles to the original weavers when possible. The descriptions  are from curator notes and refer to the original weavings. Each blanket generates a donation to Native American arts, education and health
