Pendleton Carry Along Motor Robe - Badlands
Our Pendleton Motor Robes were originally called steamer rugs during the early 20th Century, as they were used on the trains in the PNW. These blankets were a warm, welcome companion for those who traveled by horse drawn carriage, train or boat.
This one honors Badlands National Park, designated a national treasure by President Roosevelt in 1929, and home to one of the world's richest fossil beds. Deep forest green, golden sunrise yellow, sunset orange and light earthy brown reflect the natural beauty of the landscape's sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires. The Lakota knew the place as mako sica. Early French trappers called the area les mauvaises terres a traverser. Both mean "bad lands," no doubt a reference to the rugged and treacherous terrain.
