Trakke x Timorous Beasties — a wild experiment in textile design

Scottish outdoor lifestyle brand Trakke have launched their wildest collection yet, produced in collaboration with textile designers Timorous Beasties. (I have to admit to having a soft spot for both brands, as they were founded by Glasgow School of Art graduates like myself).

Their limited-edition range of five bags is made from digitally printed waxed cotton — which as far as I know — is something that hasn’t been done before.

Mixing old and new techniques to beautiful effect, the resulting products combine the usual hard-wearing construction of Trakke, with the distinctive prints and vivid colour that Timorous Beasties are renowned for.

Available exclusively from the Trakke website, the collection starts at £75. It’s also worth noting that each bag is handmade in Scotland using British made materials, not something that many brands can say these days.
