By now, you might have heard that Pendleton Woolen Mills has co-branded with Shwood, another Oregon-based company, on a limited run of Shwood’s “Canby” frame style.
Jessica Camblin, Pendleton’s Home Division merchandiser, explained that “Shwood approached us two years ago with the idea of working together, and we thought the idea was super-cool.”
Ideas were kicked around, and the plan came together in a pair of frames with laser-engraved temples in our iconic Chief Joseph pattern. They are packaged in a Pendleton wool carrying pouch made especially for Shwood.
Shwood is a young company devoted to producing the very best. All their design and manufacturing is done right here in Oregon, and by the way, they just won Dell’s “America’s Favorite Small Business” award. As part of the award, there is a reality show featuring Shwood. Go watch it!
It’s bound to be entertaining because as Jessica puts it, “They are a great group of guys!” And this is a great pair of frames (available here).
