Herschel Supply Co – Bags of History And Style
When you look at bags designed by the Herschel Supply Co you would understandably be mistaken to believe that they have been in circulation for over a century. The Herschel Supply Co brand has only been around since 2009, but the origins of its existence roll right back to the early 1900’s. If you visit the official Herschel Supply Company Website you will find out that inspiration for the brand originates from the ancestors of James and Lyndon Cormack. Peter Alexander Cormack who left Scotland, with his wife, and settled in the small town of Herschel Canada. Now living in Vancouver, the two brothers decided to name their new brand after the tiny town that generations of their family grew up in. They state that, ‘our goal is to create a timeless product with fine regard to detail’, and this is most certainly represented in their designs.
