The story of Bellroy is a funny one. It started with that big lump at the back of your pocket. The frustration of always having to take your wallet out because it hurts to sit on it.

Inspired by the classic barrel duffels of the 20th Century, we set out to design a timeless and stylish everyday carry. The Bomber Barrel redefines style by presenting itself in a modern and simple barrel structure: pure, austere and clean. The Bomber Barrel is an ultra grade nylon duffel bag... Read more
One of the distinct characteristics that we look for in a brand is the story. We want our brands to go beyond the products. We want them to inspire. Let's check out the story of Mike and the brand introduction of This Is Ground. The story behind This Is Ground is rooted in adventure and design, both of which influenced the experience of Founder & Creative Director Mike Macadaan. There was his role as a crew chief for an advertising blimp traveling from city to city, carrying an array of weird, wild blimp gear. There were also... Read more
