Renowned for its quality and innovative side, the Herschel Supply Co label is inspired by vintage mountaineering, its heritage and journeys around the world to design its models of backpacks and saddlebags. Modern cuts and shapes also adapt these classics for a future generation.
Despite the impression that Herschel Supply & Co has always known this brand, it has only been in existence for 5 years. It all began in the early 1900s when the Scottish couple Alexander and Annie Cormack, encouraged by the Canadian state, agreed to acquire a property in the town of Herschel to continue their business of making rolls.
In 2009, Jamie and Lyndon came up with the idea of turning their grandparents’ barrel workshop into a bag factory. For the name of the new company the Cormack brothers stop on Herschel, in homage to this city that houses his family for three generations.
