Pendleton – A Passion for Quality
How many of today’s brands do you think your great-grandparents would recognize? Most likely, only a handful. And among the names that you might find on that very short list is Pendleton. A family owned business, Pendleton has been making classic woolen blankets and clothing for over 100 years. Their name has become synonymous with quality and beauty that can last a lifetime. Over the years they’ve added new fabrics and items to their collection including totes, socks and magnificent beach towels.
Pendleton designs and colors are so distinctive that they are instantly recognizable. Patterns, both intricate and bold, combined with a rich color palette or vivid black and white, set them apart from the competition. Their blanket designs have been repurposed for sweaters, socks, bags and beach towels. They’ve also been weaving handsome plaids for shirts that have been favorites of men and women for generations.
Looking for a cardigan, a pullover or a turtleneck sweater? At Whole Earth Provision Co. you’ll find Pendleton sweaters that can take center stage in your wardrobe or be the perfect piece to pull an outfit together. One of our favorites this season is the White Sands Cocoon Cardigan, a long sleeve cardigan in a cocoon silhouette with an open front, curved hemline and dolman sleeves. The subtle colors are a reminder of its desert namesake, the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.
Pendleton has applied their classic patterns to an assortment of handbags and totes. When you’re ready to pare it down to the absolute essentials, Pendleton’s Smartphone wallet with an optional wristlet, is a perfect example of small is beautiful. There are other wallets and small bags to choose from, all with well-designed interiors to help keep you organized. With the Pendleton tote and its two interior pockets, a canvas lining and a zippered top, you can carry what you need in style on your daily commute or when you’re traveling.
Our new favorite wedding gift is a Pendleton Beach towel. The Fire Legend Towel for Two looks great on the beach or on the grass at an outdoor concert. It’s amazingly soft and absorbent, and made with the quality and attention to detail that you’ve come to expect from Pendleton. It even comes with a nylon carrying strap.
If you’re beginning to put together your holiday gift list for very special people, we hope you’ll consider Pendleton. A gift of beauty and quality is one that will be treasured long after the New Year has begun.
