From the owner:
I started sewing in 1985 with an off season order for 10 pyramid tarps while working as an instructor for Pacific Crest Outward Bound. Now I have 20 years of experience as an instructor, supervisor, and logistician with various outdoor schools (NEW Rural Resources, Marion County Wilderness Challenge, Adventurous Christians, Passport for Adventure, Peak 7, Gonzaga Prep climbing club) and 35 years of sewing and manufacturing time. I enjoy collaborating with customers to make gear that fits their needs. Emphasis is on simple, multi-use and elegant designs. Most fabric is U.S. made, all labor is done in the USA.
