Pendleton, Downlite Unite on Bedding Line

Pendleton Woolen MillsMASON, 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.

Mark Korros, CEO of Pendleton, said, "This partnership represents a new entry for Pendleton into the utility bedding market, and we could not be more thrilled to partner with the leader in that space, bringing high-quality bedding and accessories to our customers."
