In the early 1900s, Peter Alexander Cormack and his wife made the journey from Wick, Scotland and settled in the small town of Herschel, whose population today is counted at 30 residents.

Founded in 2009 by brothers Jamie and Lyndon Cormack, Herschel Supply Co. adopted the name of the small town where three generations of their family were raised. Herschel Supply Co. is based in Vancouver, Canada and manufactures the finest quality backpacks, bags, travel goods and accessories. Our goal is to create timeless product with a fine regard for detail.



For Fall 2013, Herschel Supply brings you new innovative textures, inspirational color ways and an updated take on classic silhouettes. Inspired by cold nights at the cabin and the unpredictable weather that the season often brings, the new Fall 13 Collection is created with a fine regard for the great outdoors, ultimately offering the perfect product for everyone.

Our collection of bags, backpacks, wallets, totes, and travel accessories has once again grown. New for this season is the Rubber Pack and Real Tree Collections along with a new series of iPad sleeves and laptop carryalls, and an expanded travel range. As we move forward into Fall 2013, Herschel Supply continues to redefine timeless pieces while maintaining a fine regard for detail.

The Bad Hills Workshop was born out of our passion for experimenting and creating. As a platform with no rules or guidelines, this is where innovative ideas are brought to life.
