Pendleton Home Launches Tapestries
March 28, 2005,
Still flexing its muscles, and branching out in a modish new design direction for home, Pendleton Woolen Mills is launching a group of limited-edition wool tapestries featuring contemporary artists.
The two are spotlighted in a Contemporary Artist Series of Tapestries that uses new technologies in weaving developed under the lead of Brott Bishop, Pendleton vice chairman.
Each of the tapestries if 70-by-54 inches, and targets a $450 retail price point. Each pattern is produced in a limited edition of 750, and each is hand-signed and numbered.
For easy hanging, a tapestry and blanket hangar has been designed to allow the tapestry to float on the wall. The hangars come in a cherry finish and two sizes — 64-inch and 70-inch.
