“Our line was inspired primarily by timeless American icons. The foundation of the collection is based on the durability and simplicity found in early work wear. Pioneers, rebels, the Wild West, the first rock and rollers, traditional “Southern Hospitality” culture, railroad workers and cowboys. All inspire the distinguishing design elements that recur throughout the line,” says Matt Brodrick, co-founder of Freenote. “The result is a set of classic, high-quality staples that will outlast trends.”
Andrew Brodrick, co-founder of Freenote, adds, “We place utmost importance on the quality and craftsmanship of our product, but also on those who help to create it. By housing all manufacturing domestically, we ensure product is made responsibly. At the same time, we maintain complete creative control from original design to final product.”
Freenote hosted its first line previews at Agenda Long Beach and at Project New York in January. They also showcased at Liberty Las Vegas in February 2014. The collection is now available for retail.
