The Story Behind the Philanthrophist Briefcase by Apolis and Filson
Los Angeles-based Apolis has always consistently proclaimed their commitment to responsible production, frequently highlighting sustainable manufacturing methods as an integral part of their business. After all, ‘Apolis’ can be roughly translated to mean “global citizen.” The team behind the brand made their words the idea behind their latest product, collaborating with revered brand Filson to create the Philanthropist Briefcase. The Philanthropist Briefcase is produced in Seattle from cotton milled and dyed in Uganda, in a microeconomic effort to revitalize the country’s once-dominant material harvesting. The unique, collaborative briefcase is now available online for $396 USD.
