It’s no secret that we are big Pendleton® fans here at Klum House. Last holiday season, we offered in-person bag making workshops with Pendleton® wool and makers from near and far said, “I want to make that too!” This year, we’re ready to make all of your Pendleton® dreams come true…
We are so excited to offer Limited Edition Maker Kits with Pendleton® Wool! Now you can make your favorite Klum House bags with Pendleton® wool (milled here in Oregon!) for an extra pop of color, pattern, and warmth. Choose from several beautiful color ways to make your own luxurious, professional-quality bag—all on a home sewing machine.
Pendleton® Woolen Mills is one of the last remaining fabric mills in the United States—and it happens to be located right here in our home state of Oregon. In a time when nearly all fabric production has moved overseas to take advantage of cheap labor and lax environmental-protection laws, Pendleton® Woolen Mills is still in operation, just as it was back in 1863. We love to be able to support local, domestic manufacturing whenever possible, and Pendleton® is a great opportunity to do just that.
Pendleton® is best known for its woolen blankets, which often feature colorful, geometric patterns inspired by Native American designs. Their blankets were originally designed for and sold to Native communities, who have used them for ceremonial gift-giving ever since. Pendleton® wool is soft, light weight, and made from 100% pure virgin wool. Over the last 150 years, Pendleton® has become an icon of American textile manufacturing, as well as the beautiful landscape of the Pacific Northwest.
