"I have a true love for early 1900s American-made products. And I thought, wouldn't it be a cool concept to create designs centered on the old industrial-made goods and lifestyles of those times?"

Ralph sorta accidentally fell in love with Americana. One day, he realized that he was inexplicably drawn toward the storied stuff of the early 1900s –– the more industrial and rustic (and sometimes rusty) the better. And so he decided to set out to make new and repurposed items that captured the same aesthetic and story. His wares, from the vintage coal miner tag necklaces to the letterpressed shirts (you read that right) ooze the authenticity of old America. But Ralph's favorite? That would be the Jesse Utility Bag –– it has all the usability of older pieces, but it's brand-spankin' new.
