Description

  • For a picture of the full robe on one side, please click here.
  • This intricately woven blanket reflects the beauty of the elaborately beaded bags crafted by the Ojibwe and other peoples of the Great Lakes. The earliest Ojibwe bandolier bags were made around 1850. They were very popular through the 1930s, and a few are still made today. Bandolier bags are heavily beaded pouches with a beaded strap worn diagonally over the shoulder. Native American bandolier bags were inspired by the cartridge bags carried by European soldiers. The designs were created using European glass trade beads instead of the porcupine quills of the old days. The bags themselves were usually fashioned from cotton, wool, velvet, or leather. They could be used as tobacco pouches or dance and ceremonial regalia, worn usually by men. The beadwork was done by women during the winter. When summer came, men traveled to Sioux country where a beautiful bandolier could be worth a pony in trade.
  • Blanket is robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe.
  • Woven in Pendleton's American mills.
  • Unnapped.
  • Felt bound.
  • Impressive as a wall hanging and practical when folded on a sofa or at the foot of a bed.
  • 82% virgin wool, 18% cotton.
  • Twin / Robe Size: 64" W x 80" L.
  • Dry clean.
  • Made in the U.S.A.
