Pendleton Woolen Mills Turtle Pattern Blanket

Pendleton Woolen Mills re-created this blanket after a historic pattern from the company&rquo;s archives. The turtle design celebrates a traditional Iroquois creation story, which holds that the world was created upon the stong shell of the Great Turtle.

Gift of C. Morton Bishop III, Class of 1974
