Pendleton Robe Blanket - Harding Robe Blanket
A wool blanket made in America with a story dating back nearly a century. In 1923, President Warren Harding and his wife came west to dedicate a portion of the old Oregon Trail. At the ceremony, local Cayuse and Umatilla chiefs presented the first lady with a Pendleton shawl inspired by our famous Chief Joseph blanket.This blanket, woven in Pendleton's American mills, is robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. Impressive as a wall hanging and practical when folded on a sofa or at the foot of a bed.
