Long held tradition for the Navajo people, the hand weaved rugs and blankets have been some of the most sought after goods in the Americas since the arrival of the Spaniards. With its geometric shapes and forms, the textiles are archetypes of Navajo mythology, where God-like creatures bestowed the Navajo with the ability to weave.
This season, outdoor apparel label Penfield will instill some those tradition with its Navajo Blanket Collection. Encompassed backpacks, shoulder satchel, t-shirts, hoodie, and the collection's centerpiece, the Outback Navajo Down Vest. The collection seamlessly integrated the centuries old craft with contemporary tech, such as a Teflon treated cotton nylon exterior on the Outback Navajo Vest, and modern styling.
The collection is now available through Penfield's online store along with authorized retailers around the world.
