Vintage Pendleton navajo wool melton jacket available at The Goodhood Store.

It all started when I bought a vintage blazer for ten bucks at Blackmarket Vintage in October. Everyone liked my coat. Guys, gals. Mind you, though I knew who Pendleton was, no one here could afford to spend $400 on a stunningly gorgeous jacket. So when I came upon a Pendleton booth at a Buyer’s tradeshow, it was like I had died. Talking about winning.

In the mean time, here’s an ode to Ikat textile – an intricate weaving and dyeing technique with Central Asian roots and the equally compelling navajo print, belonging to an Athabascan people who migrated to – where else – Canada in the between 1300 and 1500 AD.

Despite the praise of both prints in the fashion world, you can always catch them mounted somewhere one way or another. Be it rugs, bags, scarves – it’s a prominent part of Toronto’s culture. But stick a brand name behind it and it takes up a whole new meaning.
