Over 18 months ago, I started a side project: sewing together dresser caddy's with scraps of Pendleton and cheap oil cloth from a local fabric store. After 8 prototypes, it was clear I didn't have the machinery or expertise to achieve what I wanted. Turning my focus to something that was actually relevant and useful, I realized aligning passions was probably the best way to go: Cycling and making cool shit for cycling.
It took several tries to even get to an acceptable starting point:
Sewing, testing, iterating. Even the 5-panel cap and the scarf started showing up with some different materials. Eventually, each of the items for sale on this site received anywhere from 12-18 months of testing and versioning. I feel 100% confident that we're launching with top-shelf versions of each of these ideas.
The very first prototype of a working Tool Roll still lives and only shows how these pieces get better with use. It's survived 2 portland winters, 200 mile drives on the roof rack and getting run over by a car. We hope you find the same quality and use for these products as we have.
