After a long stint as a footwear and industrial designer, Silas left the world of product design to revive the brand passed down through his family for five generations. The Beebe Company was a Portland business known since 1884 for handcrafted quality, and Silas’ resurrection is his modern interpretation of the legacy. For each of his products, he starts with high-quality leathers and canvas, sourced in the US. Then he puts his designs to the test. Every smartphone holder, bag or carrying strap must be functional and timeless, so that each item has longevity of use equal to the durability of the materials. They’re also easily repaired, meaning with thoughtful care of the heavy-duty materials, they might just last forever.
