PORTLAND, Ore. — May 18, 2022 — Pacific Northwest lifestyle brand Pendleton Woolen Mills announces the release of the Pacific Wonderland and Forever Oregon blankets and lifestyle product collection in collaboration with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD). The items were created to celebrate the centennial of the Oregon State Parks System. A portion of sales will go to support OPRD’s Park Explorer Series, which encourages a more diverse group of park explorers by removing barriers and welcoming all to Oregon State Parks.
The design for the limited edition Pacific Wonderland collection depicts a moonlit landscape in a deep indigo, featuring some of Oregon’s most cherished natural wonders: a waterfall, mountain, forest, rivers and ocean. Above and below this landscape are classic, bold park stripes varying from a vivid amber and bright marigold yellow, to a light sky and deep regal blue, on to a brilliant forest and warm mossy green.
The design for the limited edition Forever Oregon blanket depicts a snow-covered volcanic peak reflecting off a lake flanked by forests and crossed by traditional geometric patterns honoring Oregon’s original inhabitants. Medallions for twelve beloved state parks are bordered by stripes in colors that echo the landscape.
“Working with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department to celebrate their dedication to providing and protecting the remarkable recreational sites Oregon has to offer is a milestone collaboration,” said Amanda Coppa, senior merchandise manager of Pendleton’s home division. “The commitment to Oregon’s heritage that both Pendleton and the Oregon State Parks share is truly iconic. We are thrilled to launch a new philanthropic partnership in support of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department’s Park Explorer Series.”
“Partnering with Pendleton to advance our inclusion and accessibility efforts has been an incredible opportunity,” said OPRD Communications Director Jason Resch. “Every purchase supports projects that make state parks more welcoming to everyone, from investing in accessible trails to partnering with organizations to get new users into parks.”
The limited edition items in the Pendleton Pacific Wonderland collection includes a wool blanket ($279), Klean Kanteen® stainless steel water bottle ($39.50), caps in two colorways ($29.50), and a beanie ($24.50). The limited edition Forever Oregon wool blanket retails for $499. Items are available on Pendleton-USA.com and select Pendleton retailers.
