Blankets form a huge part of our home décor because they are everywhere in your house from living rooms to bed rooms. Choosing the right one becomes a difficult task even because most of the people are quite finicky about it to avoid repeating a design or even a texture. The choice of blanket is varied for all age groups. Some might like the cotton ones while others might opt for velvet.
Then in the year 1896 the Pendleton Woolen Mill in Pendleton Oregon became the first mill founded for the sole purpose of producing trade blankets. Each of these mills had their own specific design to designate which mill it was produced in. Some of them were very similar in design, but the Oregon City blankets had a very intricate design that was different from all the rest. The plains Indians preferred the Capps simple design over all the rest.
In 1901 the introduction of the jacquard loom altered the designs dramatically allowing the mills to create different zigzag designs in contrasting colors. The Native Americans had no choice but to accept them.
