In 1863, Thomas Kay traveled by boat, burro and buggy to settle in the new
state of Oregon. There he grew the Thomas Kay Woolen Mills to be the
largest weaving facility in the west. It still stands as a working museum
in Salem, Oregon, a symbol of pioneering spirit and innovative technology.
Thomas passed his tradition to his daughter, Fannie Kay Bishop and her
sons. Six generations later, Thomas Kay's descendants weave on at
Pendleton Woolen Mills. We love these beautiful pieces from Pendleton,the
Thomas Kay Collection. Each item has been carefully fashioned to reflect
his detailed weaving and craftsmanship.
