Pendleton is the product of a pioneer heritage. In 1863, Thomas Kay, a young Englishman experienced in wool manufacture, arrived in Oregon and built his own mill in the Willamette Valley. His daughter, Fanny, who worked with him, married a retail- clothing merchant, C.P. Bishop, bringing together merchandising and manufacturing expertise. This combination formed the background and understanding of the textile and apparel industry that continues to be reflected in the Pendleton’s family management today. In 1909, Thomas Kay’s grandsons, C.M., R.T. and R.C. Bishop, continued the tradition with the purchase of an idle wool sourcing facility in Pendleton, Oregon. They began producing quality bed and Indian blankets in vivid colours and intricate designs inspired by Native American tribes of the region. Their high quality, excellent value and long lasting beauty were highly regarded by both settlers and Native Americans. The tradition continues to this day in the collaboration with Kenojuak, the master of Inuit graphics. Spirit Wrestler Gallery with N.W.Pendleton is pleased to bring these two great traditions together for the first time in the release of “Arctic Owl.”
