Just hanging out with the people.

 

Loki the wolf dog is one of our favorites. He lives a rugged outdoor lifestyle with his person.

Looking dapper in a kerchief, this blue-eyed beauty takes modeling very seriously.

 

A Golden fashion statement.

 

He looks a little guilty, as if he can’t quite believe his luck.

Shy is a wee pup now, but we know she’s going to grow up to be big dog.

 

Same with Foster, who is enamored of his Pendleton scrap toy.

Foster just loves to roll around #foster #socuteithurts #pendleton photo cred: @richcrowder

BUST magazine and the Prettiots take Pendleton to Some New Old Places

Bust_11_14_a

We love going new places, even when they are old places, like “To Sir With Love,” or Petula Clark’s “Downtown.”

Bust_11_14_b

The early sixties were a time when the hair got taller, the eyeliner went on thicker, the skirts got shorter and music was pretty wonderful. This editorial captures it perfectly with the Prettiots wearing our Pendleton socks, plaid shirt dress, and Park Stripe pullover.Bust_11_14_c

 

Bad girls with the voices of angels stretch from Dusty Springfield to the original Lulu to Amy Winehouse to a new generation with the Prettiots; Kay Kasparhauser, Lulu Prat, Rachel Tachtenburg.

Thanks for taking us along for the ride, girls.

With Good Wool to All, and to all a Good Night.

New Video for the “Wild” soundtrack: First Aid Kit and Pendleton

“Walk Unafraid” (originally by REM) is part of the “Wild” soundtrack. ¬†Our Levi’s California collaboration jacket¬†is featured in this video of the cover¬†by First Aid Kit.

“Wild” is not just the number one movie right now, it’s the number one bestselling book on Amazon–years after its release!

The movie was¬†filmed on location, so Oregon’s¬†part of the Pacific Crest Trail is one of the stars, right up there with Ms. Witherspoon. There are some amazing shots near Crater Lake, all the more amazing because Crater Lake national park is only open a short time each year.

So this video is a confluence of a lot of cool things: Pendleton, Levi’s, REM, First Aid Kit, the mighty¬†Cheryl Strayed, the movie “Wild,” the book Wild, and of course Reese Witherspoon.

We are excited!

Some Lindsey Thornburg and Pendleton News

 

 

Lindsey Thornburg is in the news again with her beautiful cloaks made with Pendleton wool. Blake Lively was caught by the paparazzi in a cloak made with the Raven blanket.

You can find this cloak for sale at Blake’s Preserve.us site, where she has curated her favorite American products. And here’s the blanket and story.

Black-Raven

The Raven blanket is a fine example of Coast Indian artistic style. Here’s the legend behind the pattern:

North American Indian folklore reflects the many stories surrounding animal spirits. Every animal has a reason for existence and a legend of how and why they are on Mother Earth. Raven is the counterpart of Coyote. Even though Raven can be an expert trickster, often fooling other animals out of food or shelter, Raven can also be a friend when other animals need help. With sharp eyes, he has a keen skill of knowing when danger lurks. Raven identifies the danger and notifies all other animals in the desert or forest to be cautious or to hide. Raven is a solid reminder and teacher of the good versus evil and is always available if there is a decision to be made. The Blanket exemplifies the black colored feathers of Raven; the red color of potential danger that surrounds him. The blanket is bordered with the Sun, Moon and Stars that are celestial facets of Raven’s life.

 

Lindsey has¬†also done a collaborative¬†blanket with us¬†based on hand-dyed devor√© velvet fabric designed by Lindsey and created by Tye Dye Mary¬ģ.

Isn’t that amazing? Lindsey works with so many fabric artists to produce her line, and we are excited¬†to be one of them. We hope you’re having a terrific December, and that you’re staying warm, wherever you are.¬†Like Blake. Who is looking fabulous and staying warm in Pendleton wool.

“The New West” By Pendleton for Levi‚Äôs¬© Made and Crafted‚ĄĘ

pendleton_hunterlawrence-copyright 2104

Levi‚Äôs¬© Made and Crafted‚ĄĘ collection for Fall 2014/Winter 2015¬† takes inspiration from the architecture of Seattle and Portland, two cities that inhabit the wild landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. Natural beauty is almost taken for granted here. Sometimes it takes¬† appreciation from outside the area to help us remember the wonder of¬†our region.

One city is built along Puget Sound, and the other is bisected by the Willamette River and bordered by the mighty Columbia. The Cascade Mountains tower behind the Seattle skyline, resembling clouds. Both cities sit near inactive volcanoes; Mt. Rainier and Mt. Hood. The designers for Levi’s have used this interplay of¬† city and mountain, indoors and outdoors, old and new, to inspire their newest Made and Crafted‚ĄĘ collection. The silhouettes, texture and color palette reflect the natural and manmade beauty, with a nod to the Northern Lights for good measure.

Using these deep natural inspirations, Levi’s© has partnered with Pendleton Woolen Mills to portray the  landscapes of the Pacific Northwest with shades of indigo to reflect Levi’s© rich history with denim.

collageThis beautiful blanket is available at Pendleton-usa.com. We suggest you take it along on your next adventure.
