TREW Introduces Truce Bags for Fall 2016

TREW, designers and builders of style-inspired, performance outdoor apparel, introduce Truce Bags, a line of resilient, fashionable and environmentally responsible bags, designed and crafted in Portland, OR.

TREW has been working with Truce founder and designer Luke Mathers for years, turning warrantied gear and materials leftovers into small bags and dopp kits that were snatched up as fast as they were made. TREW recognized the opportunity to provide unique product to their customers using materials that would be otherwise be prohibitively expensive, or thrown away and acquired Truce in order to expand their offerings to a line of everyday bags that exemplify the performance and casual style that is Portland.

Building on Mather’s custom designs, Truce bags use unique materials like upcycled sailcloth and drysuit material to build one-of-a-kind daypacks, as well as a gym bag and a dopp kit. Small batch sourcing means each bag has a backstory, and cool new colors will be available every few weeks.

Upcycling unique, high end materials from other industries adds another layer to TREW’s direct to consumer model. By creatively sourcing materials that are otherwise destined for a landfill, TREW can produce premium quality bags in an environmentally conscious way, while offering consumers a one-of-a-kind experience.

All Truce bags are handmade in Portland, OR and are one of a kind. If you see something you like, grab it, because it will be gone quickly.
