If you’re ever on South East Morrison, be sure to find the team at Red Clouds Collective working away at making some truly stellar products. They made the move from NE Prescott to SE Morrison to open their retail space, which also houses their workshop. Neatly tucked away in the upstairs of their space, sewing machines whirr as they stitch together quality canvas and leather goods. On the main floor, leather is cut, rivets are set, and all other sorts of magic happens.
Their waxed canvas pants have been more popular than ever, and they don’t show any sign of slowing down. Of course, warmer weather might make make heavy-duty wax canvas pants a bit… sweltering… but motorcyclists, adventurers, and the fashionable minded can take solace in knowing that their pants wont give up when the going gets tough. Even the rivets are hammered flat so that they don’t snag on anything or cause unnecessary wear.
The leather that the Red Clouds Collective uses is veg-tan sourced from Herman Oak—traditionally tanned leather made in St. Louis—which I’ve found to be some of the best leather to work with. Every component of each product gets the hand-loving attention that it needs to make it a highly durable, long lasting good.
The team at Red Clouds Collective were among the first people I met when I moved to Portland a couple years back and it was great to reconnect and see what all they’ve been working on. Be sure to head over to their website and check out all of the great products they have in-stock
