It's a throw, not a robe. Pendleton call it a 'robe' to pay homage to the classic steamer rug of the early 20th century, which travellers often wore around themselves (like you would a robe). But this is very much a throw, with a carrier

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.
