The design of the classic duffel bag has come a long way since its initial inception as a military issued carryall. Early iterations took the form of a top loading cylindrical hold all bag with a drawstring closure. These bags were practical, but they were anything but pretty.
Nowadays, duffels have been created to take on any scenario - the weekender bag, carryall and the gym bag all have a place and purpose.
Our tote went through a few phases of redevelopment to create the best version we could.
“We redeveloped it twice to make it even better than before,” said Kramer.
We teamed up with the U of O athletic department and Sports Management Program to upcycle a collection of exclusive fan gear from authentic athletic uniforms.
Many of the items we create from excess leather come from factories we work with overseas. The sizes of the hides and pieces available often play into the design of our products...
Thanks to our friends, partners and fans, we made a substantial impact in 2017. Making and upcycling products from excess materials, we conserved natural resources and offset our impact on the environment.
We had a great time working with Blazers TV Analyst Lamar Hurd. Check out the video featuring custom upcycled apparel we made him for the SHIFT runway for The Right Brain Initiative!
We're pleased to announce the introduction of La Vallée and the Hill, a new collection of wallets for men and women!
