Traveling keeps you feeling alive and your senses alert. Constantly adjusting to new situations, new people, new cultures, and new environments. Less to rely on, and more to discover. learning not just new things, but also about yourself.
It started with hunting waves. Empty waves. It was a similar story during the winter, a hunger to find pure, empty, perfection while not forgetting to enjoy the journey there. Inspiration came from the industries who design product for the cruelest environments; The Nautical industry provided it in quantity, the further we delved in, the more it opened our minds to the way things could and should be done.
Open ocean, driving sea spray, icy temperatures and winds at the high end of the Beaufort scale. The elements at their most corrosive dictated our DNA.
We sourced canvas from the best factories in the marine industry and had it sewn together with the very machines and skilled hands that sew together sails for yachts circumnavigating the globe.
After testing carbon fibre from countless factories we settled for a grade more commonly purposed to the aviation industry. Our bolt ropes, kador strips, guy lines and webbing are Maffioli and Dyneema more at home as climbing life lines and bullet proof vests.
We've searched high and low to find the right people to work with, who share the same values as us and who appreciate and understand things being crafted a certain way.
We take inspiration from our rugged surroundings, with our studio leaning into the harsh north easterly winds that frequent our coordinates all too often.
It's this proximity to the sea and the elements that runs so deeply in our hearts that we hope translates though to our products. We needed contemporary products designed for the harsh environments we found ourselves in. We needed accessories that were simple, designed well but most importantly worked.
Our mission statement is clearer than ever. We'll continue to build lasting relationships with the people that matter, and continue to build innovative products that last, all whilst keeping a watchful eye on the environment.
