Pendleton Woolen Mills

The heritage of Pendleton Woolen Mills dates back to 1863 when british weaver Thomas Kay arrived in Oregon. Kay’s grandsons, the three Bishop brothers, opened Pendleton Woolen Mills in the early 1900s. They combined Kay’s weaving skills with stunning Native American-inspired designs in the form of the "Pendleton Trade Blanket", a benchmark for beauty and quality for over 100 years. Family-owned and operated for more than six generations, the uniquely American story of Pendleton Woolen Mills continues today.
