Pendleton’s New Portland Collection I recently bought a sweater online.
The designer, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, calls it a Navajo blanket cardigan, and I’m well aware that it’s trendy.
“Navajo,” “Native American,” and “Indian” prints are everywhere.
These beautiful wool blankets with lots of color and different patterns were designed for tribes across the west and mid- west.
The Pendleton discussion continues - Previously, Adrienne Keene at Native Appropriations bloggged about it, I wrote a brief post about it, and now has posted on the 'strange history' and the 'interesting exchanges' between Pendleton and Native nations, and now, high fashion hipsters.
I don't agree with some of the author's wording, but I've re-posted the entire article below.
But this is the last of my Christmas in October Trilogy.
If you want to see some 49ers in action, check out Maggie of Denisebrain as she shows off some of the many 49ers she has had. I thought it was a great little jacket and pictured myself wearing it while raking leaves or some other fall activity, but when hubby’s allergic to wool I never get to wear my knits as much as I would like to.
