Chief Joseph Pillow

Colour: Slate

Iconic Native American pattern pillow

These Pendleton Chief Joseph Pillows are made using pure virgin wool and duck down inserts. An interior designer’s dream, they have rightly become popular favourites, imbued with authentic frontier history. Of all Pendleton Woollen Mills’ signature plaids and patterns, none is more famous than the Chief Joseph design. Dating from the early 1920s, its famous arrowhead motifs symbolise bravery and point to all the principal compass directions of Mother Earth. The design commemorates the heroism of one of the Northwest’s greatest Nez Perce warriors, Chief Joseph. His Nez Perce name was ‘Hin-mahtoo-yah-lat-kert’, which means ‘Thunder Rolling Down Hill’. The Nez Perce tribe were famed as warriors, breeders of Appaloosa horses and as knowledgeable guides – they were even recruited to lead parties of the Lewis and Clark Expedition

  • The history of Pendleton Woollen Mills is a tale that is woven into the history of modern America. It is a story that began over 150 years ago, with the entrepreneurial spirit of British weaver Thomas Kay.

    Kay reopened the historic Pendleton Woollen Mill, which produced trade blankets for the Native American tribes of the Columbia River and the Southwest. Initially, the company emulated the multicolour striped patterns of the famous point blankets produced by the Hudson’s Bay Company. But after designer Joe Rawnsley visited the Navajo, Hopi and Zuni tribes, they pioneered the introduction of stunning Native American-inspired designs, which became coveted and much-prized heirloom pieces.

    Today, Pendleton continues to set the standard for American style. With six generations of family ownership, its textiles are infused with authenticity, heritage and craftsmanship – all still proudly designed and woven in the USA.
