Lindsey Thornburg and Pendleton team up again for artistic, beautiful capes.

Lindsey Thornburg has done it again.

Our favorite New York-based, western USA-raised designer has once again taken beautiful Pendleton blankets and transformed them as only she can. With careful attention to the play of each blanket’s patterns, she’s created magic. We’ve linked to the blanket used in each cape so you can see them flat, and truly appreciate what she does. The cape above is made from a Spirit Guide blanket.

The capes above and below are made with the Sky Walkers blanket, which celebrates the Mohawk ironworkers responsible for so many of our country’s urban skylines.

Blake Lively, fashion icon, offered this cloak on her Preserve.us website, but it appears to be sold out. Check Lindsey’s website! And be sure to read about Lindsey Thornburg’s inspirations on our blog. Her beautiful cloaks are dramatic innovations on the tradition of blanket coats that stretches back to medieval times in Europe. And centuries ago in the Americas, Native weavers made outerwear of their blankets, and adapted the styles to manufactured Trade blankets when they were introduced in the late 1800s. We have to tell you this stuff because we’re Pendleton, and we go back a ways with blankets.

But enough history lessons.

For now, just enjoy those photos of a beautiful woman in a beautiful cloak.
