Pendleton Woolen Mills: PARFLECHE SADDLE BLANKET

pendleton-usa.com

The Parfleche saddle blanket honors the Plains Indian art form of decorative paintings on rawhide. These painted hides were folded and tied to form a container, typically used for holding dried meat and pemmican. The designs included stylized maps and geometric motifs. The name is derived from two French words parer, meaning "defend" and fleche, meaning "arrow," so named because the hides were thick enough to defend against arrows. Woven in our American mills.
