The sleek and powerful Orca is a symbol of protection, believed to watch over sea travelers and lead the way home at journey’s end. Orcas also represent family, as they mate for life, carefully tend their young and hunt in packs. Some First Nations people believe their strongest chiefs are reincarnated as powerful Orcas. They revere and protect these fearless hunters of the deep, also known as Sea Wolves, Killer Whales and Blackfish.

For more than 153 years, Pendleton has set the standard for American style. With six generations of family ownership, the company remains dedicated to its American heritage, authenticity and fabric craftsmanship.
Thomas Kay, a British weaver, planted the foundation of which Pendleton was built upon when he immigrated to America in 1863. Kay used his expertise in weaving to set up his own woolen mill in Salem, Oregon and his legacy lives on in Pendleton’s tweed, flannel and worsted wool apparel.
Kay’s grandsons, the three Bishop brothers, opened Pendleton Woolen Mills in the early 1900s. They joined Kay’s weaving skills with stunning Native American-inspired designs in the Pendleton Trade blanket, a benchmark for beauty and quality for over 100 years. Family-owned and operated for more than six generations, the uniquely American story of Pendleton Woolen Mills continues today.
