Shona is a 20th-century name given to a number of related ethnic groups in Zimbabwe. They speak similar dialects of a standardized Shona language, and many trace their ancestry back to the 12th-century capital city of Great Zimbabwe, whose ruins are now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today’s Shona stone carvers draw inspiration from those ancient builders and speak of releasing the spirit trapped in stone as they carve and polish with hand tools. Each handmade sculpture is unique, as is the raw, hand-quarried soapstone it emerged from; please accept variations.

Pendleton Woolen Mills has created distinctive blankets honoring America’s National Parks since the early 1900s. Each blanket has unique historic designs and colors that date back to frontier trading posts. The original blankets had 3, 4, or 5 black stripes incorporated in the design, which indicated the value. Fur trappers would bring their catch to the trading posts, and traders would hold up fingers to indicate the weight of the blanket in pounds that they were willing to trade for the trapper’s goods.
