Behind the Scenes: Filson x Apolis

May 13, 2013
Filed in:

Filson x ApolisFilson and Apolis pooled resources to create the Philanthropist Briefcase.  Here’s a behind the scenes look at the development of this unique product.  Below, an excerpt from the Apolis article, read the whole story at Apolis.

“Our Uganda Project is a microeconomic program employing formerly displaced Ugandans in the rebuilding of the once-strong Ugandan cotton business. The result is a 17.5 oz organic cotton canvas that was grown, milled, woven and dyed in Uganda. Every 100 units of the Philanthropist Briefcase utilizes the entire annual yield of cotton for one Ugandan farmer.

With over a thousand units handcrafted in Seattle by Filson’s team the Philanthropist Briefcase is a great story of two worlds being connected and how true it is that we might as well have the best!”
