These Pendleton Silver Balk blankets are robe size, which is the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. These blankets fit perfectly over a double bed, can be used for wall hangings or just for cuddling up on the sofa.
The Silver Bark blanket is a beautiful example of an “Overall” blanket pattern, with design elements repeating across the entire surface of the fabric. It brings to life the early age of Pendleton blankets, circa 1920, and features stylized arrows, stars, diamonds and waterbug motifs.With colors inspired by the white and gray bark of the Aspen trees against the blue sky, this blanket was re-discovered by an ardent collector. The blanket is cherished for the muted colors that give it an instantly well-worn look of a much older blanket. Silver Bark brings the sky and earth together in a classic Pendleton blanket design.
