You can still get these beautiful baskets in time for Mother’s Day! They make a dramatic accent on tabletops and buffets, and there is a color for every home’s palette. Each one is hand woven by craftswomen in Rwanda using sisal fibers and sweet grass. Perfect as a centerpiece, fruit bowl, or wall hanging, each basket comes with a weaver profile and helps lift women out of poverty.
Where does a design originate? in the case of our Tala embroidery, the answer is a long one, steeped in design history from several continents.
This past year, Pendleton loaned archival blankets to the Maryhill Museum of Art for an exhibit of antique trade blankets. Along with our blankets were incredible examples from private blanket collections around the country.

Sunday, April 22nd is Earth Day, 2018. It is a day to remember the beauty and fragility of the planet we call home.
Earth Day History
The observance of Earth Day came from gathering national support for environmental issues. In 1970, San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson both asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration in support of the planet. Millions of people participated. Today, Earth Day is widely observed as a time to plant trees, clean up litter, and enjoy nature by getting out in it, through hiking, walking, gardening, or joining the many public observances held on April 22nd.
This Earth Day, you can celebrate for a cause with the Gift of the Earth blanket.
Gift of the Earth features a bold design on a neutral backdrop is inspired by the traditional Hopi potters, who draw from generations of knowledge to create their beautiful, unique works of art. Their work, and this design, pay testament to the practice of learning from the past while moving into the future.
Pendleton is proud to unveil our latest national park blanket, celebrating Washington state’s Olympic National Park.
The colors of this blanket pay homage to the Olympic National Park in our neighboring Washington State. This unique region is famous for its varied ecosystems—from rugged coastlines and dense old-growth forests to glacier-capped alpine peaks and lush rainforests.
Spring is on the way, and Pendleton’s cotton quilts and blankets are a beautiful way to make a home ready for the warmer days ahead.
This year’s runaway favorite blanket is now a cotton quilt set. Shifting dunes of shining white crystal rise from the Tularosa Basin at New Mexico’s White Sands National Monument. Erosion from the surrounding mountains constantly replenishes the world’s largest gypsum dunefield, encompassing 275 square miles. During the day, the dunes shine white against the blue sky. At sunset, the sands glow with vibrant hues of twilight, while desert flora—yucca, cholla, rice grass and more – reach toward the last rays of the setting sun.
This Spring, we have two new wool blankets that honor two beautiful coastal spots; Falcon Cove and Point Reyes.
We love The Big Lebowski, and we love dogs. This post is just a little sharing of that love.
We notice you have a lot in common with your dog.
“The Big Lebowski” turns twenty this year, and Dude, we still love it.
The Big Lebowski
Two decades ago, this Coen brothers film was released to low to middling success, but quietly grew into a cult favorite. No one can pinpoint the exact reason why. Was it Donny’s clueless questions? Walter’s chin-strap beard? The German nihilists? The dream sequence scored by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition?
Well, it was probably a grand confluence of all of these important factors, plus the masterful turn taken by Jeff Bridges as The Dude. He staggers in and out of trouble, wearing alternately sweats, shorts, pajama pants, a bathrobe, a purple t-shirt and a battered Westerley cardigan.
Jeff Bridges wore his own clothes for this role, and though there were two sweaters hand-knitted as back-ups, he preferred wearing his personal Pendleton Westerley.
Ashley Rodriguez is hosting a new web series called “Kitchen Unnecessary“–and it’s so much fun. As her site says,
Outside cooking is not just for the summer. This series shows you the magic of cooking seasonal ingredients outside all year long. Rain or shine – or snow, Ashley Rodriguez and her guests will take you outside to show you how to embrace cooking outdoors.
On each episode, we will show you how to plan, prep and prepare a seasonal and local menu that you can prepare and enjoy outside. Cooking outside with seasonal and local ingredients, we do not sacrifice taste or technique, but we add a whole new layer of experience and memories that last long after the food is gone.
Enjoy this charming video below (the sheer enthusiasm of her mushroom expert is contagious), and yes, watch for the Pendleton appearance!
