Jacquard Harding Blanket Robe - Century Harding
A refreshed layout and limited-edition, commemorative colour celebrates the centennial of Pendleton Woolen Mill's Harding® pattern.
In 1923, President Warren G. Harding and First Lady Florence Harding visited Oregon's Blue Mountain Country to dedicate a portion of the Old Oregon Trail. At the ceremony, leaders of the Cayuse and Umatilla Nations presented Mrs. Harding with a newly designed blanket. For a century, the Harding pattern has been one of the most sought-after signature patterns Pendleton make. This bright, exciting ombré celebrates its evergreen popularity.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Pendleton's family history in Oregon dates back to 1863 when Thomas Kay, a young English weaver opened his own mill in Salem, Oregon. In 1909 Thomas's three grandsons, Clarence Morton Bishop, Royal Thomas Bishop, and Robert Chauncey Bishop opened Pendleton Woolen Mills. Six generations later Pendleton Woolen Mills is still run in Oregon by the Bishop family.
