Portland , Oregon -- Pendleton Woolen Mills has created a limited edition look for Kenworth long-haul truck sleeping compartments.
Pendleton, a veteran producer of Native American looks in blankets and classic looks in apparel, has joined forces with Kenworth Truck Company, a manufacturer of heavy and medium-duty trucks, to produce a W900 Pendleton Limited Edition interior for 72-inch and 86-inch Aerocab sleepers.
The limited edition interior includes a distinctive Pendleton wool fabric pattern on the sleeper's upper wall, and leather driver and passenger seats feature Pendleton-designed headrest embroidery and foldable armrests. Also included are leather-accented door pads with embroidery, and a two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel. Wood grain trim throughout complements the leather and embroidery.
Owners will receive a custom Pendleton travel bag and wool jacquard blanket that shares the design touches found in the sleeper.
