Harris tweed castoff
Last weekend we were honored with a visit from the Japanese “hi-style” magazine HUGE. HUGE is doing a feature on Oregon manufacturers and we were pleased that they included Archival in their itinerary. On Sunday, the HUGE team visited our sewing contractor’s facility in Springfield to get some live action snaps of Terry at work.
It was a pleasure to watch Nick, a professional photographer, at work. Here he is taking light meter readings before shooting Terry. I love that Nick shoots on film.
We just restocked the AC web shop with canvas duck rucksacks. In addition to red, we’re adding dark brown and orange to our colorways. These rucksacks are made of a sturdy 18 ounce #8 cotton duck. Aside from the material change, they are identical to our classic rucksack and are made in our Springfield, Oregon workshop.
For those who have been waiting for us to resupply our inventory of AC waxed twill rucksacks, we now have bags in navy, gray, olive and our ever popular ranger tan.
While we do love our waxed cotton twill, we’re introducing an unwaxed version of our Archival Rucksack as a more affordable alternative. These rucksacks are made of a sturdy 18 ounce #8 cotton duck, made in the USA. Aside from the material change, these are identical to our classic Rucksack and are made in our Springfield, Oregon workshop.
Terry, our local sewer, just delivered a stunning, ebony batch of Archival Clothing rucksacks. For this round of waxed twill bags, we sourced elegant, black Horween aniline chromexcel leather for a modern, monochrome look.* We also modified the strap adjustment system to accommodate a wider size range of users. Since Tom is now operating out of Brooklyn, Sara has taken over the work of stamping each individual rucksack strap keeper. Look for her handiwork as well on our future production run of field bags.
Rucksacks in ranger tan, olive and gray can be purchased from our web shop or via our retailers.
