In 1910, the company established itself as a purveyor of fine products with a socially responsible mission statement. Today, the company continues that philosophy by choosing many “green” business practices.

Pendleton has its company headquarters in Portland, Oregon. The original plants in Pendleton, Oregon, and Washougal, Washington, are among the few woolen mills still in operation in the United States today.
