Father Winter

As the holiday nears, it’s time for a visit from Father Winter.

2012 Father Winter

 Father Winter is a distinctly American take on Father Christmas.  His robe is cut and sewn of Pendleton wool in the Evening Star jacquard , with natural fur and feather trims.  He carries a staff and bag with woodland accents and has an incredibly soft white beard.  We think that he has a little more rugged mystery than the standard Santa; a sense of dark  forests with snow underfoot and stars overhead.

2012’s Father Winter takes his place beside the 2011 Father Winter.

2011 Father Winter

Each and every Father Winter is handmade for Pendleton by Anita Baptiste, an artist in Chandler, Arizona.  Ms. Baptiste works with the rich colors of our wool to create a harmonious blend of natural elements.  She’s planning a beautiful Father Winter for next year, which we will introduce this summer.

So hang those stockings and light those candles.  And though Father Winter looks like he might prefer pemmican, go ahead and leave him some cookies.  Some traditions never need changing.
