Vintage Pendleton 1950s Womens Bathrobe Wool Tartan plaid Cream, Black, Wine Red

Pendleton Woolen Mills is a Northwest company founded in the late 1800's and based in Oregon. In 1949 the company realized there was a market for womans classic branded virgin wool sportswear as well as menswear, and the famous "49er" was born. Womens wear branched into robes, shirts, skirts and other sportswear and is one of the highest quality wool brands you can own and well worth collecting.

Pendleton womens garments have a cream label and mens have a blue, and while there are many mens vintage tartan robes to be found, finding a womens bathrobe from such an early date is not so usual. The tag on this beautiful robe has no wool mark and the style is very 1940's but I know this couldn't have been made prior to 1949 because no womens clothing was, and my educated guess is 1949 to very early 1950's.

This is a truly gorgeous black, cream, deep wine red and yellow tartan plaid bathrobe cut in a classic 1940's shape with shoulder pads, a shawl collar, wide cuffed sleeves and more fitted cut to waist and that flared large skirt. There are cuffed pockets on the front, two at hips and one smaller at the chest. The robe wraps and ties with a tie held in belt loops. The construction, plaid matching and stitch detail is top notch. This is a soft wool almost a wool flannel.

The condition is excellent for how old this is. I took the time to do fine hand repair of about 8 to 10 teeny moth holes, I lost track and it's hard to find them now. There is a moth nibbled damaged area at the front right just on the very edge of the hem on the fold and some small age related spots here and there none of which detract from this beautiful vintage robe. There is very little over all wear. Labeled a size 14, but this is vintage sizing, not modern.

Shoulder at upper back - 16 inches (40.64 cm)
Chest - 42 inches (106.68 cm)
Waist at largest wrap - 35 inches (88.90 cm)
