The Making of Westerly Goods
It's been a year in the making, and we're finally ready to introduce Westerly Goods.
Growing up in the Pacific North West, we have always been spoiled by the surrounding natural landscape - the mountains, the ocean, and the rainforest. When you live here, for nine months of the year you’re guaranteed a fair share of rainy days. Rain has always been part of our lives. Some manage to make the most of it, but many struggle to find their way through.
A year ago we decided to embark on a journey with a simple goal: make life in the rain better. We know what it's like to feel trapped inside, wishing you could just hibernate until the storm passes. But we've also seen the upside of rain - the beauty of a deserted beach and empty waves, the contrast of forested mountains blanketed with clouds, and the air that always seems freshest after a good downpour.
At Westerly Goods, our aim is to remove the barriers that stop so many from venturing outside in the rain. This drove us to create a line of products made to keep you dry, empowering adventure and exploration, regardless of the weather. We decided start with a product that symbolized our mission - the umbrella. Our goal isn`t to reinvent the umbrella, but reinvent the way people think about it by creating a better experience. Every product we make is built on a foundation of function and purpose; goods that are durable, useful, and beautifully crafted. It’s time we got past just the necessity, to a point where you can truly enjoy the goods you chose to keep you dry.
We want to provide more reason to celebrate the rain - not hide from it. To all those who seek it, we hope you find more enjoyment in the rain with the help of our products. And if you find that there's something about rain that's still getting you down, let us know - we'll do whatever we can to make it better.
