Pendleton Japan Lifestyle Goods


Pendleton Woolen Mills x A+F Corp. x E L S E VV H E R E

Our exclusive distribution partnership with Pendleton Woolen Mills allows for us to bring you goods made directly with their Japanese Partners. Typically, these items are only found in Japan - NO EXCEPTIONS. This new relationship allows for us to bring key items into the USA. We are thrilled to have such an amazing opportunity to not just work with Pendleton, but also their partners with whom they have long-standing relations in Japan.

This first collection of goods is designed and produced by their partner A+F Corp. who is known for lifestyle and outdoor goods. A+F has chosen very unique goods to design such as the *Camp Chair, Pencil cases, Wallets and Pouches most of which are made in Japan. These goods are only available in Japanese boutiques and A+F Country stores in Tokyo until now.

Our hope is to introduce new goods in small quantity to the USA market every few months. We hope you like this first limited edition offering we have made available for you only available via E L S E VV H E R E and our partner stockists.



Things to know about this launch of lifestyle goods


The Camp Chair

The camp chair is a collapsable backpackers chair designed for use on the camp trail. We also see it useful for outdoor concerts, art festivals, or even just for use in your studio or home. The chair is easy to set up. It also collapses down very small to pack easily in a carry on bag or backpack. It weighs in just under 2lbs. It is accompanied by a nylon stuff sack to keep it tidy and clean when not in use. Designed by A+F in Japan, made in Philippines.

The chair available in 5 heavy wool patterns (which are cut from different Pendleton blankets). Only 5 of each color were imported into the USA for this initial launch. That's right, only 25 total are in the USA. Better grab yours now, if there are any left. Sorry, bottle of 12yr Yamazaki not included.


The Wallet

The wallet is made with lightweight Pendleton Wool with cuttings from other design projects in Japan. No two are completely alike, but all are from the same general patterns(two patterns). Internally the wallet will store credit cards and currency with ease. Internally a small leather change pocket sewn in the center. Both sides of the wallet use Pendleton wool. The wallet is finished with a brass zipper. This carrying utensil can easily hold rolling papers, some edibles for the hiking trail, a lighter or maybe your fishing license if not used as a traditional wallet.. Designed by A+F in Japan, made in Japan.


There will be 10 of each color will be made available for this launch. A total of 20 are for sale. That's pretty exclusive stuff, right?


The Pencil Case

The Pendleton pencil case can have multiple uses just as the two items above. It is made with lightweight Pendleton Wool with cuttings from other design projects in Japan. It can hold some slim glasses, maybe some mini liquor bottles, or matches for your campfire. We use it for washi tape, a pencil sharpener, small ruler, pencils and pens. It comes leather lined. The case is finished with a brass zipper. Designed by A+F in Japan, made in Japan.


There will be 10 of each color will be made available for this launch. If you're as good at math as we are that means again only 20 are available. Whoa, exclusive radness that includes you. Inclusive exclusivity.


The Zip Pouch.

The Zip pouch comes in two sizes, large and less large. The large version can easily hold a Leica camera and some film, or your toiletries, makeup, pencils and pens and so much more - well, maybe not all at the same time. The less large pouch can hold a small micro 4/3 camera, or a pack of smokes and lighter, some film, or maybe some snacks. As you can see the options are endless for both sizes and how they are used. The zip pouch uses a heavier fabric than the Pencil Case or Wallet, but not as thick as the blanket wool used on the Camp Chair. It used a heavy 10 oz canvas fabric for its backside which has been dyed navy blue. It is unfinished inside and closes cleanly with a brass zipper.


There will be 10 of each color will be made available for this launch. That's 10 of each size too. Since we already established you are a math whiz, that's a total of 40 of these beauties in the US of A. More selection and breadth than the other goods for this launch, but still very very limited. Since these are quite possibly the most versatile pieces in the mix you might want to add one to your list of things you're grabbing from this launch of lifestyle goods today. Just sayin'.
