Pendleton Woolen Mills

Started by Thomas Kay, an intrepid Englishman in search of the perfect place to rear sheep and weave wool, Thomas settled in Oregon in the mid 1800's and started to build the infrastructure to produce quality wool of his own, and so Pendleton was born.

In 1960 the now iconic Board shirt was a must for any Californian surfer, so much so a band named themselves The Pendleton's because of their much loved board shirts, The band changed their name to the Beach Boys and faded into obscurity... But the shirts live on enduring the test of time and transcending trends.
