Stanley x Pendleton for 2023 – Take it Outside!

A Quality Partnership

We are excited about the newest additions to our partnership with Stanley, the first name in insulated bottles. This partnership brings together two iconic companies, both in business for over a century, with strong commitments to utility and quality. It adds some exciting new choices: a pour-over set for perfectly brewed camp coffee and a stackable insulated tumbler, perfect for your other favorite brews. Stanley is a wonderful company to work with and the results are, well, outstanding!

The Patterns

Four insulated bottles, Stanley x Pendleton

Let’s take a deep dive into the patterns, including two patterns that generate donations to worthy causes related to the Great Outdoors.

National Park Stripe

National Park Stripe Stanley x Pendleton bottles

Pendleton Park Stripes celebrate America’s Treasures, with a portion of sales supporting the work of the National Park Foundation, the charitable partner to the National Park Service. Pendleton’s National Parks Collection helps to fund restoration and preservation projects, including the Grand Canyon Train Depot (still underway), the Many Glacier Hotel’s helical stairway (now completed) and the newest project, the Desert View Heritage Center.

Wildland Heroes

Wildland Heroes Stanley x Pendleton bottles

Each year, crews of firefighters fight wildfires throughout America, protecting private and public lands. Sales of Wildland Heroes products generate a donation to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, which helps the families of firefighters who are killed in the line of duty, and assists injured firefighters and their families. 

See products that support this cause here: Wildland Heroes

These two patterns join two more:

Rob Roy

Is it a tartan, or is it a plaid? In this case, it’s both. Also known as ‘Old MacGregor’, The ‘Rob Roy’ tartan is not officially registered with the Society of Tartans, but is associated with Scottish folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor. It’s also known as Lumberjack Plaid, Buffalo Plaid, and Buffalo Check. Whatever you call it, this red and black check evokes the Great Outdoors like no other pattern.

Yakima Camp stripes

Pendleton Camp stripes evoke the outdoors in colors that reflect Western landscapes: forests, lakes, river gorges, coastal crags, and the rich colors of the high desert. Pendleton’s camp blankets were based on the ombre-striped bedrolls used by cattle hands and shepherds. During the day, they were tightly rolled and tied to saddles or packs. At night, their warm wool made for cozy sleeping under the stars.

Wrangler® and Pendleton Woolen Mills Weave the Spirit of the West Into New Heritage-Inspired Collaboration

A New Collaboration

A man and woman sit together on a dock.

One of America’s most recognized denim labels, Wrangler®, and the world-class leader in wool, Pendleton Woolen Mills, have worked together to create the Wrangler x Pendleton Collection, a collection featuring long-lasting denim, wool and cotton pieces.

A man stands at a lakeshore wearing a hat and a Pendleton-Wrangler jacket.

Coupling the fine wool of Pendleton Woolen Mills with Wrangler’s legendary jeanswear, the collaboration highlights the natural beauty of the American Southwest through colorful patterns inspired by the iconography of the western landscape and the adventurous optimism of the cowboy spirit.

Wrangler x Pendleton offers both men’s and women’s styles, including jeans, sherpa jackets, hoodies, and graphic tees.

The Blanket

As a nod to the western legacy of both legendary brands, the assortment features a signature luxury wool blanket woven with a roping cowboy motif.

Down to the smallest detail, this wool blanket honors the rich Western roots shared between two American icons: Wrangler® and Pendleton. Made in the USA from wool that’s spun, dyed and woven in the Pacific Northwest, it features a lassoing cowboy framed by a Southwestern-inspired design and a balanced pattern of arrows pointing in two directions. Reverses for two different looks.

Wrangler x Pendleton signifies one of the final collaborations in Wranglers 75th anniversary. The finale of the icon’s diamond anniversary will take place at the season-ending championship event, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, this December. Pendleton is extremely proud to have been part of the celebration for this iconic brand’s milestone!

Voice of the Body – a limited edition blanket by Andre Walker

Andre Walker

We are excited to once again work with renowned designer Andre Walker, as he brings his singular sense of style to the Pendleton looms for the very first time.

Walker imagined, painted and designed “Voice of the Body” in his Brooklyn-based studio with the desire to have it tangibly come to life, and invited Pendleton to transform his artwork for the loom.

The limited edition blanket feature a striking set of deep brown eyes, vibrant pink lips in fellowship with a pictogram-like figure overlaying a cornflower blue, tan and yolk gradient.

Voice of the Body blanket by Pendleton Woolen Mills, designed by Andre Walker

Inspiration for the “Voice of the Body” painting and blanket came from Walker thinking about God and existence. “It’s about the spirit in the gut of our intuition as it remains hopeful in our expression of the voice of the body,” explained Walker. He views the painting and blanket as a muse for the singularity of humanity’s soul eschewing specifics of color, materiality and perception.

Pendleton’s designers and weavers always look forward to the challenge of expressing an artist’s ideas, and Walker’s dramatic vision comes across beautifully. Below is his original artwork, to which the blanket remains remarkably faithful.

Pendleton and Andre Walker

This is the second collaboration for Pendleton and Walker. The first was Walker’s 2017 collection titled “Non-Existent Patterns” where he used Pendleton fabrics, including the Glacier National Park pattern to create pieces that he originally designed between 1982 and 1986. This collection is currently featured in The Met Museum’s exhibit “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” until Sept. 5, 2022. 

“I’ve taken our second exchange with Pendleton to another level, designing a singular textile artwork. I loved the idea that it was a universal utility free of physiognomic boundaries. It was magical to see the image come to life on the looms. Working with Pendleton is a perfect match of know-how, artistry and industry,” noted Walker.

The limited edition “Voice of the Body” blankets, signed by the artist, are now available on and at various luxury retail outlets.

Pendleton and Benson Amps – It’s Official!

A New Partnership for Pendleton

Our newest partnership with Benson Amps is here! Benson Amps hand builds heirloom quality amplifiers using components carefully selected for quality and tone. Now, select Pendleton fabrics will be available as a custom finish. Each Pendleton x Benson amp has a custom blue badge and a Pendleton shirt tag on the back.⁠

As their website says:

It rains a lot here in the Northwest during the winter, and there are only a few appropriate options to stay warm and dry (umbrellas are unacceptable here, not sure why). One of the best options, and the de facto approach of the Benson Amps staff, is just to wear Pendleton wool shirts everywhere, as a forever uniform.

That’s why we are so excited to announce that we have partnered with Pendleton Woolen Mills to create a line of Pendleton covered amplifiers!…Instead of taking a royalty, Pendleton has agreed to put part of the proceeds from this project towards creating a standing backline of our amps to be made available for festivals and events.

LEE® and PENDLETON – Announcing a New Collaboration

It’s a First

A jacket from the 2021 Lee/Pendleton collaboration

We are excited to announce the launch of our first collaboration with Lee®, the iconic apparel brand known for its timeless style. This limited-edition drop reimagines essentials from almost 300 years of combined apparel experience.

Original Lee® styles such as the Lee 101™ Jean, Union-Alls® and Storm Rider® Jacket have been remixed with exclusively designed Pendleton plaids and stripes. Each legacy pattern has been reimagined in new colorways, with fabrics woven in Pendleton’s USA mills.

Cone Denim

The jeans are crafted and sewn in Greensboro, North Carolina. These styles feature some of the last remaining American selvedge denim from Cone Denim’s White Oak Mill, which closed in 2017. This legendary, high-quality denim is woven on vintage Draper shuttle looms that only produced 100 yards a day.  

“Pendleton’s use of beautiful color and pattern has always been a source of inspiration. Working together is a dream come true,” said Betty Madden, vice-president of global design, Lee®. “We’ve taken a fresh design approach and incorporated Cone Mills’ selvedge denim to make this collection heirloom quality with stunning craftsmanship. I’m thrilled with this collaboration.”  

“Working with Lee® was a perfect pairing. Their authentic American heritage brand echoes Pendleton’s dedication to quality, design and textile innovation,” said Peter Bishop, Pendleton’s executive vice president of merchandise and design. “With so many years of combined craftsmanship and expertise, we’re excited to see this unique apparel and blanket collection come to life.”

More Info and Where to Buy

The collection includes men’s and women’s jeans, shirts, jackets and Union-Alls, as well as a limited-edition woolen blanket made of an exclusive Pendleton® stripe design. The collection is available on Lee® and Pendleton’s websites, and later this month in select Pendleton retailers and independent boutiques.

GLCO x Pendleton – A New Collaboration

SoCal Dreaming

Garret Leight California Optical (GLCO) has partnered with Pendleton Woolen Mills for a limited edition blanket inspired by GLCO’s unique hometown, Venice Beach, California. The collaboration has a wonderful artistic synergy, thanks to GLCO’s brand roots, and Pendleton’s place in Southern California’s early surf scene.

Our Collaboration Partner

Garrett Leight California Optical (GLCO) is an eyewear lifestyle brand founded in Venice Beach CA in 2010. The brand brings a fresh perspective to tailored eyewear by blending classic and new, the iconic and the innovative in optical and sunglass collections handcrafted of the finest quality material.

So of course the pattern will also adorn a bespoke eyewear case! The case fits all styles of eyewear. It’s finished in the same whipstitch binding as the blanket, with a soft lens-friendly lining. No two of these cases will be alike.

Garrett Leight, Founder & CEO of GLCO, said, “I’ve been collecting Pendleton flannels for over two decades. So, when the opportunity arose to partner with this amazing heritage brand I had to jump all over it. Pendleton is the expert in what they do and are well known for world-class wools and fabrics. I’m excited to release a collaboration that embraces the roots of my hometown.”

The Canals

Those blues and yellows bring the blanket to life in the colors of California; especially the colors of sunny Venice Beach, an artsy, edgy neighborhood that’s home to the famous Venice Canals. These iconic waterways were designed by Abbott Kinney in 1905. Kinney wanted to bring the look and feel of Venice, Italy, to Los Angeles County.

His original network of seven canals was soon joined by six more (the New Amsterdam canals). The Venetian ambience included gondolas with singing gondoliers who poled their way through this picturesque and beautiful seaside resort town. But when America’s love affair with the automobile heated up in 1920, the canals fell into disuse. Seven canals were filled in to make room for roads, and by 1940, the remaining six fell into disrepair. In 1992, those six canals were renovated and reopened.

Today, the canals form a waterway through one of the most beautiful and desirable residential neighborhoods in the area, a National Historic Site since 1982.

A Beautiful Exhibit

In 2018, we worked with iconic designer Andre Walker to provide fabrics for recreations of some of his most iconic styles. Pieces from this collection are part of an important new exhibit on American style at the Met Costume Institute.

According to Artnet News

The exhibition, in the Anna Wintour Costume Center, is based around the concept of a patchwork quilt, with each square representing a feeling that corresponds to the spirit of a particular garment or runway collection. Feelings like warmth and comfort are visualized through a blanket-coat that Andre Walker designed with Pendleton Woolen Mills, paying homage to the Oregon-based company that was founded in 1863, and Oscar de la Renta’s floral-festooned dresses—over the years favored by Taylor Swift and Wintour herself—represent joy and delight.

We are extremely proud to be part of this exhibit!

Throwback to an even earlier collab

Back in the 1970s, when Pendleton had a store in the Disneyland Resort (which was just Disneyland back then) Vans and Pendleton offered Vans sneakers made with pendleton plaids. We have a pair of those in our archives, and until recently they were part of our heritage Hallway display. Here are a few views of those sneakers,

The second colorways of the 2021 sneakers are made in the same Royal Stewart tartan!


So whether you choose the Original Surf Plaid, or the Red Royal Stewart Tartan, you’re throwing it back. Way back.

Here are a few more views of the original sneakers, so you can appreciate all those retro details.
