We’re excited to unveil our Rock Point blanket, and the beautiful accessories and apparel it inspired.
Rock Point –
Rock Point is a community in Arizona, part of the Diné/Navajo Nation that covers more than 17 million acres in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. Rock Point is surrounded by rugged red rock formations, including Red Mesa, Two Sisters, North Arch, and Whale Rock, or Tsé Biná’ookaahí. Sandstone formations rise on a plain background that represents the desert floor, alternating with Los Ojos motifs joined together with arrows that point to the past and the future.
At Pendleton-usa.com, you can find the nine-element Rock Point pattern used in sweaters, scarves, an array of beautiful bags…even a cotton comforter. Our favorite examples are these coats.
This is the women’s 1930s Archive Coat. And yes, this is a design adapted from one of the coats in our archives, worn by actresses like Anita Page and Mary Pickford in the 1920s.

Then, we have the Men’s Brownsville Coat, named for one of our early mills in the Pacific Northwest.

We’re in love with the modern possibilities of this very traditional pattern.
