Following numerous successful brand collaborations Woolrich, the original outdoor clothing company, has developed the Collaboration HUB in an effort to stimulate future partnerships. Woolrich will launch the Collaboration Hub at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, UT.
“The HUB will help us open conversations with other brands and foster the development of collaborations,” said Patrick Nebiolo, Woolrich Executive Vice President. “In the past collaborations have developed organically, the HUB will bring structure to the process and help accelerate the development cycle.”
In the past year Woolrich has collaborated with Coach, Sea Bags, Pro-Keds,Timbuk2, Timberland, Duluth Pack, and L.L Bean to name a few. As a domestic manufacturing leader, Woolrich has established itself as the go-to heritage brand for quality wool and made in the USA expertise.
“Collaborations have been an integral component to our branding strategy,” added Nebiolo.
Woolrich’s recent collaboration with Maine-based Sea Bags produced a limited edition collection of totes, shave kits and iPad cases featuring a unique fusion of wool and recycled sails.
Timbuk2 created a limited run of its messenger bags in their San Francisco, CA factory. The bags blended Woolrich’s rural east coast wool with Timbuk2’s urban west coast design.
Most recently Pro-Keds released a Woolrich edition of its iconic Royal Master DK street sneakers.
Brands interested in collaborating with Woolrich should stop by the Woolrich booth at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (#19001-20001) or send an email to email@example.com.
