Trakke - a grounded Scottish Entrepreneur's story


Our best selling bag, and we adore them. Made with love, expertise and a bit of Gaelic magic up in Scotland.

Listen to their founder, Alec, do the most brilliant podcast all about what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

We  love Alec, here telling us all about their history when we popped up in January...

And we don't just love him for being so nice about our wee shop in Netil Market (we've a new one now, its a bit bigger Alec!)

Here are some shots of the Trakke workshop

And my Trakke modelled by Tom, also wearing his favourite Paramo

OK he's not quite as photogenic as Alec - it helps when you can model all your own gear! - but he really knows his stuff about getting kids outdoors, especially young people. He also will let you just browse for hours without talking to you. Come and chat - or not - to him any Thursday and most Sundays when he's at our lovely shop in Netil market, usually with our dog Charlie.

And this is one of our customers taking his Trakke on a tour of its homeland...

If you want deep low-down on Trakke, on travelling and all the kit to keep you comfy, come on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday when Beth or Kitty are in the shop and they'll be happy to go through everything whether you are a first time car camper, a daily commuter or off to Peru.

Get your own Trakke here


and know when you do, you also help this little social enterprise help more children get outdoors.
