PENDLETON CHIEF JOSEPH JACQUARD HAND TOWEL - (MAROON & BAMBOO)
One of our oldest blanket patterns brings history and Native American style to baths from ranch house to urban loft. The time-honored design was created in the 1920s to celebrate the heroism of the Northwest's great Nez Perce leader, Chief Joseph. Arrowheads symbolizing his bravery point in all directions of Mother Earth.

When the U.S. government ordered the Nez Perce onto reservations in Idaho, Chief Joseph resisted, leading his band toward Canada. Considered a brilliant strategist, he won many battles against great odds. In 1877 he surrendered to save his people from a harsh winter with little food and no blankets. The Chief Joseph design includes Native American symbols of strength and bravery, attributes of this great chief whose courage and determination won him respect in times of peace and war.
