Via Nike INC:
“From the early explorers of the Oregon Trail who inspired Pendleton Woolen Mills’ warm, woven products to the tracks where Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman forged the spirit of Nike, the Pacific Northwest is ingrained with innovation. Pendleton® is as renown for wool shirts and blankets as Nike is for sport apparel and footwear. Their relationship modernizes a legacy of custom creations by taking their collaboration to NIKEiD, the definitive online platform for self-expression.
Pendleton’s Umatilla fabric has been the basis of their men’s shirts since 1924. This medium weight, 100 percent virgin wool material is named after Oregon’s Umatilla County, where the wool is still bought from the same family ranches that Pendleton purchased from 90 years ago, with their natural benefits tried and tested over the decades.
The tartans available on NIKEiD bring their own individual histories. The Black Watch Tartan (Blue/Green) is based on the pattern worn by the Scottish 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment in the 1700s, while the MacRae Dress (Grey/Red) and Robertson (Red/Blue/Green) Tartans are traditional Scottish clan patterns.”
