Good things take time and effort. We started Red Clouds Collective to bring to life products inspired by our lifestyles and the people who share our values: our love of exploring the world and our belief in living a life that fulfills your creative appetite.
We love how products that are crafted with care feel in your hand—that they feel alive and have character, that they wear in, not out. Drawing inspiration from old-time tools and apparel that have proven themselves timeless, we hope to reinvent each piece with more functional materials, better fits, greater comfort, and a longer life.
We use materials that we believe in and work as a small team to make sure everything is carefully made. This involves traditional techniques, some modern machines, and creating a new process every time we develop a new piece. It’s imperative to have the right tool for the job, and sometimes we have to make a tool in order to get the job done.
Vegetable Tanned Leather from Hermann Oak—a St. Louis, Missouri-based tannery that has been tanning leather using extracts of tree bark in the traditional method since 1881.
Waxed Canvas from Fairfield Textile, a specialized American manufacturer based in Bridgeton, New Jersey that has been crafting fabric since 1838.
Selvage Denim from Cone Mills’ White Oak Plant in North Carolina, woven on vintage 1940s fly-shuttle looms that give each piece of fabric a unique depth and dimension.
