I love these wool blankets, they’re beautiful and great quality. I’d say they’re like Pendleton but better. The company was started by a local Native American artist Louie Gong.
That’s not the entire story though. “Eighth Generation is a Native-owned and operated company based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in 2008 when Louie Gong (Nooksack) — an artist, activist and educator widely known for merging traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his urban environment to make strong statements about identity — started customizing shoes in his living room. Now the first Native-owned company to ever produce wool blankets with a flagship retail store in Seattle’s iconic Pike Place Market in late summer 2016 – Eighth Generation is a proud participant in the global economy with the mission of creating opportunities for community-based cultural artists who, like Louie a short 8 years ago, struggle to meet demands for handmade cultural art.”
