When we come out with new ideas and products, the one thing that makes it worth while is to see people interact with them. We make an effort to reach people through events and trade shows to engage in conversation about product and whatever comes to mind. This year at Agenda, we met the brightest and most talented people in the industry that care dearly about product design, manufacturing and lifestyle. We learned that the consumer culture hungers for new and exciting merchandise that really allows people to express their uniqueness. We met some cool people from established brands and organizations like MassDrop, Chrome Bags, James Brand, Mane Tame, Barnaby Black, Pine Top, Matix, Dickies, FanSiPan, Manhattan Portage, EastPack, Nixon, Levis, Road Runner Bags & Genius Socks. Even though our brands differ and lifestyles clash, the process of producing a brand and product cruise on the same wave. This in itself makes going to shows so worthwhile; meeting the people, talking shop and figuring out ways to distribute our work.
