This is one of my favorite images in our fourth issue. It’s on page 78, and it’s from the camping trip we took with Derek and Lauren in San Rafael. Lately, the weather in the Bay Area has been perfect for a fall camping trip, and I thought there would be no better time for this edition of Object Found. Pendleton throws have been a staple in homes for many years, and their quality and craftsmanship remain excellent as always. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites available below, and with a little DIY effort, you can soon be camping with your very own personalized Pendleton blanket.
You might notice the message of love on the corner of this Pendleton blanket tucked into Lauren and Derek’s trunk. If you’d like to make a personalized Pendleton of your own, you can follow Derek and Lauren’s felting tutorial here.
The Pendleton company was founded in 1863 and is still creating blankets with their classic patterns today. You can pick up one in their online store or visit them in Portland, Oregon.
