Table Runner in Pendleton Glacier Park
Table Runner in Pendleton®’s Glacier Park
Table Runner in Glacier Park made from Authentic Pendleton Wool and trimmed in black elk leather, comes from one of Pendleton®‘s oldest and most iconic patterns from the National Park Series. According to Pendleton®;
“Since the early 1900s, Pendleton Woolen Mills has honored America’s National Parks with a collection of distinctive park blankets. Glacier Park National Park Blanket was one of the first. Its historic markings and colors date back to the frontier trading posts. Traders would indicate the weight of the blanket offered in exchange for furs by holding up one finger for each pound. The original blankets incorporated three, four or five black stripes in the design, which indicated the value of the blanket. Colors and variations of the original striped theme have been adapted to reflect distinguishing characteristics of each park and blanket in the collection. National Park Blankets are still woven right here in our Pacific Northwest mills, just as they were nearly 100 years ago.”
Established in 1910, Glacier National Park spans over 1 million acres in northern Montana. Home to mountains, lakes, and hundreds of species of animals (including grizzlies, moose, and wolverines), Glacier was once considered the “backbone of the world” and utilized by the Blackfeet for vision quests.
Pendleton® Wool is made in the USA and their legendary fabrics have been a staple in American homes- from the prairies to the White House, for over 129 years. Its Native American tribal designs are iconic and have been culturally intertwined with our North American Native Peoples over the last century. Considered heirloom quality, it is one of the finest wools in the world. As a designer, it is an honor and a privilege every day I get to work with these stunning and culturally significant fabrics.
