Pendleton, Downlite Unite on Bedding Line
March 19, 2014,
MASON, Ohio-Pendleton Woolen Mills and Downlite have come together for a collection of basic bedding branded under the Pendleton name.
The two companies have reached a licensing agreement for bed pillows, comforters, throws, blankets and mattress pads. The fill will be a patent-pending product proprietary to Downlite, which is a combination of wool and down.
The collection will be soft-launched at next week's New York Home Fashions Market, followed by a full launch during the September market.
