Flowfold Partners With L.L.Bean to Create an Exclusive Line of Outdoor Gear for Holiday


Flowfold is excited to announce the release of L.L.Bean exclusive wallets, totes and duffels, all made in the USA and backed for life

Portland, ME; Flowfold, a rapidly expanding outdoor retail brand focused on minimalist outdoor gear, is excited to announce the release of a collaborative project with L.L.Bean. The two companies have come together to create a line of everyday carry gear that will be sold exclusively at L.L.Bean. Sharing a passion for quality craftsmanship and performance materials, Flowfold and L.L.Bean have built a line of totes, duffels, and wallets that will be available at L.L.Bean’s flagship store in Freeport, Maine and online at www.llbean.com.


This collaboration between two Maine companies, one internationally recognized and one up-and-coming, plays to the strengths of each brand. L.L.Bean has built a brand that customers of all ages have come to value and trust. Flowfold has attracted a growing market of young customers. The partnership is already paying off for both parties.

“We’ve been selling Flowfold products over the last year and they’ve proven to be a great seller and a real customer favorite, with lots of fantastic reviews. Folks appreciate the simple design, combined with innovative materials and designs.” Says Curt Nichols, Corporate Merchandise Manager at L.L.Bean.

The exclusive line of products will be constructed from the same lightweight and resilient materials that Flowfold customers have come to trust, and will be available in L.L.Bean’s signature olive green. Building upon L.L.Bean’s industry leading 100% satisfaction guarantee, the line will be backed by Flowfold’s lifetime warranty.

“L.L.Bean was founded on the backbone of making classic, long lasting, high functioning pieces that get people outside.” Devin McNeill, Co-Founder of Flowfold says. “You’d be hard pressed to find a more aspirational company and with this partnership we’ll work to carry that torch.”
