Pendleton Womenswear – 70 years of style and inspiration at the Woolen Mill Store!

We recently had a wonderful party at our downtown Portland Pendleton store, that included archival garments. See the fun in the movie below.

Our guests loved seeing the garments of the past, and took the time to examine the care and craftsmanship.

Well, guess what? In a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pendleton move, we’ve brought some of our favorite archival garments to the Woolen Mill Store.

WW-70th-web

Each garment’s history is there for you, along with vintage advertising. While you’re looking over these sweet pieces of Pendleton history, pick up a copy of our WOVEN #5, which tells the story of Pendleton’s line for women alongside a historical timeline for the last 70 years. You can pick up a copy at the store or read it online here:

Do come pay us a visit! You can check out the original 49’er that started it all–and that inspired our 1949 Jacket pattern!

See you soon!
