In the early 1900s, Peter Alexander Cormack, a barrel maker by trade, and his wife Annie made the journey from Wick, Scotland, crossing the Atlantic to Canada at a time when the government was enticing families to immigrate through the homestead program. They were given land to farm to support the growth of the country, and after seemingly endless days of travel, the couple settled in the beautiful rolling hills outside of the town of Herschel, whose population today is counted at 30 residents.
Over a century after that move, Peter and Annie?s great grandchildren remain in the business of manufacturing. Instead of barrels, backpacks and bags are now created. Herschel Supply Co. is based in Vancouver, Canada and manufactures a large selection of backpacks, bags, wallets, travel goods and accessories. Our goal is to bring well-designed, practical yet functional products to the market with a fine regard for detail.
