The season for outdoor living is here, and Pendleton is ready with Pendleton by Sunbrella outdoor fabrics.
Pendleton consistently searches out the best partners for collaborations and shared projects. We have been delighted with our partnership with Glenraven on a line of Pendleton-patterned outdoor fabrics. These Pendleton by Sunbrella fabrics are perfect for all outdoor uses, including awnings, furniture, umbrellas, and anything else you can think of. They also work indoors, for ultra-durable upholstery.
Like Pendleton, Glenraven (the company that produces Sunbrella fabrics) is a multi-generational family business. Also like Pendleton, Glenraven is headquartered in the USA. And, again, like Pendleton, they have maintained a strong commitment to weaving in the USA. You can see the Glenraven mill in action in this video.
Pendleton by Sunbrella fabrics use dyed threads for weaving, which means vivid, lasting color. That’s a similiarity to wool, which also takes dye all the way to the core.
One key reason Pendleton has been so proud to work with Glenraven lies in the company’s commitment to sustainability. Any used Sunbrella fabric can be returned to the company for recycling and re-use through their Renaissance program. You can read all about that here: Sustainability and Sunbrella
Did you know you can set a Sunbrella fabric in a bucket of bleach, and it won’t change its color? These fabrics will not run, stain, or fade…ever. The world’s clumsiest person can’t ruin Sunbrella fabrics, though you can watch someone try in this video:
The “Indoor Durability Challenge” will give you an idea of what Sunbrella fabrics can withstand.
We use these fabrics in our store designs, and choose them when our stores need awnings, as in our Pendleton store in Eugene, Oregon. They make an impact indoors or out, as you can see in this adorable camping trailer interior by @stagecoachdetaildesign that artfully uses Pendleton by Sunbrella fabrics.
