HISTORIQUE: In 1895, a woolen mill opened in the Oregon town of Pendleton to sell blankets and robes to nearby Native American tribes. The mill went out of business, but in 1909, the Bishop brothers, who came from a family of weavers and entrepreneurs, reopened the facility as Pendleton Woolen Mills.
For more than 153 years, Pendleton has set the standard for American style. With six generations of family ownership, the company remains dedicated to its American heritage, authenticity and fabric craftsmanship.
