For Local Heroes, Trakke designed a new interpretation of their Banana bumbag in a special Salt & Pepper fabric made using stinging nettles that was first pioneered by the Swiss Army. The twisted yarn used creates a mottled, almost camouflaged effect perfect for a product that’s smaller than a bag, but bigger than your pockets. The Trakke Banana bumbag sits close to the hip when worn on the waist and safely slung under one arm as a crossbody bag.

Cecilia Stamp’s candy coloured, powder coated lapel pins and earrings take their inspiration from Glasgow’s subway system - the third oldest underground system in the world. Cecilia utilises the industrial technique of powder-coating to bring her nuanced flair for colour to the pieces and to reflect the aesthetics of industry and transport at the heart of her commission. Wearers can combine the three complementary colourways of yellow, pink and blue with Cecilia’s lapel pins and earrings.

Jennifer Kent created the Transit travel blanket especially for Local Heroes – it is designed to be used on the move and keep warm on flights or long drives. The Transit pattern derives from a historical knitting pattern which Jennifer has reinterpreted into a modern graphic design – confident in its simplicity and imbuing a sense of movement with its track-like repeat.
