Oregon-based lifestyle brand Pendleton Woolen Mills has formed an outerwear division after re-acquiring its outerwear license from Item House Inc.

Item House has been a licensee of Pendleton’s since 1999, and the company has retained the core team that worked on its outerwear line – who will remain in Tacoma, Washington, as a Pendleton Woolen Mills satellite office.

“This is an investment in an important product category,” says John Bishop, president and CEO of Pendleton. “We’re looking forward to leveraging the expertise that our new team members have in technical fabrics and sourcing across other Pendleton lines. Our teams have been working together for years and our cultures mesh nicely.”

The transition is effective with the autumn 2020 product line, a joint development that will feature a full range of outerwear for men and women.
