Pendleton Woolen Mills: FALL 2013 HOME CATALOG

Pendleton Woolen Mills: FALL 2013 HOME CATALOG. Since I have been recently been posting about some catalogs – Bills Khaki’s and Allen Edmonds Clothing Catalogs, I came across this interesting one: Pendleton Woolen Mills Fall catalog. Pendleton Woolen Mills has been making American made products since the 1800s, however, like most American companies they have been outsourcing more and more of their manufacturing overseas – aided by NAFTA, The World Trade Organization Agreements and the U.S. Federal government. This catalog contains about 30% “Made in USA” products, some are very unique, like furniture, bed coverings, etc. The apparel made in the USA is smaller than 30% American made, but what really dismays me is they have descriptions like: “imported of USA fabric”. I truly hate that description (it means the materials are made here in the USA, then sent by boat to China, india or Bangladesh and then sent back on the boat to sell to the USA). It almost made me not post this. However, there is plenty of interesting Made in USA items, and I should not let my particular bias get in the way of dispersing this information. My message: Dear Pendleton, please start making more of your wares in America. Buy American.
