Justin Timberlake’s Man of the Woods Collection went live, as announced on his Instagram. The collection was available exclusively at a NYC pop-up shop in SoHo. Read more about it at GQ CNN Daily Mail Racked and so many more! If you weren’t there (and we know you wish you were), you can see the “Morning Light” blanket up close in our unboxing video.
The Pendleton team loved working with JT and his team on the Man of the Woods project, which celebrates Justin’s roots and where he is today. We’re having a celebration of our own with an Instagram giveaway of the Grand Canyon National Park blanket, one of the inspirations for this collaboration.

Ed. note: Please enjoy a repost of our Olympic blankets from 1932!
Ah, Olympic fever. Fans have been watching the skating and snowboarding, enjoying the games in advance of the opening ceremonies.
Of course, Pendleton has an Olympic connection. In 1932, we won the commission to provide blankets to the Olympics. Here is a photo of the blankets leaving on a train for Los Angeles.
There are several known colorways for these blankets. In our archives, we have only one, with a very warm color scheme. There are also a light blue and a brights-on-white patterns out there, but we haven’t been able to track down examples. There might even be more. Here is our archival blanket.
One of Pendleton’s jacquards for Spring 2018 is Falcon Cove. The full pattern shows best in the Falcon Cove blanket, woven in natural hues of sand, grasses and seaside bluffs. These shapes and colors represent the harmony of a beautiful stretch of coastline where thousands of birds nest each year.

Yes, that’s us in the cabin! Ed sets a pizza down on a Canyonlands blanket (no longer in the line, but we do have some accessories and towels in this pattern) and snuggles his secret crush turned girlfriend under a “Fire Legend” blanket (see it here).
Today’s post is brought to you in honor of Native American Heritage Month. We received these photos from Sharon, and the words you read below are hers. We are honored to be part of this family’s traditions for five generations.
“We are who we are because they were who they were”.
Since November is National American Indian Heritage Month, how fitting was it to take a picture of my daughter, Allie, in a beautiful Pendleton blanket. My parents have a picture of my Grandmother, Agnes, in a Pendleton blanket. I’ve always loved that picture and wanted to recreate it. Little did I know, my Mother, Christine, has a picture of her Grandmother, Ruth, in a Pendleton blanket. My mother and I decided to recreate the picture also.
The Pendleton archives hold a lot of history, some of it dating back to our founder’s opening of his own mill in 1863. Some of the most delightful history comes from our association with Disney, which stretches back to the opening of Disneyland in 1955. So here is a peek at these very special archival materials.
Patricia sent us the following story about a world-traveling Pendleton coat (seen above in St. Petersburg). And we love it!
Fifty-four years ago this month, my new husband bought me a full length, lined, red plaid Pendleton coat at a store in Bangor, Maine. I loved that coat and for many years it kept me warm. After having two children, I “grew” but my coat did not. Unable to part with it, I found a home for it in the back of a closet. Years later my older daughter saw it and asked if she could take it to college with her. I was happy to have it in use again. After four years at the University of Minnesota, the coat found its way back to my closet.
