The Portland, Oregon based Pendleton Woolen Mills has kept the tradition of manufacturing quality wool products since its founding in 1863. The company is wholly owned and operate by the Bishop family, the 5th generation to be exact. The company also has a long standing tradition with the Native American culture. Almost since the beginning, the company served the needs of Northwest and Southwest Native American nations. The company sets out to learn about each tribe’s culture and preference, then created colors and patterns accordingly. Its products, especially its wool blankets, are highly prized till the present time.
So for their 11th collaborations, atmos and YOSHIDA & CO., the maker of HEAD PORTER, decided on the incorporations of wool fabrics by Pendleton into limited edition messenger bags. Each bag’s exterior retains the quality and bold patterns found on the famous Pendleton blankets, while the interior is layered with bright fuchsia lining. There is also a series of d-rings for easy attachment of accessories. The bag comes in 2 patterns and set to release this Friday, October 12th. Currently, atmos Tokyo and eproze of ZOZOTOWN are taking pre-orders.
