Ornot operates with three main principles; Offer clothing with minimal branding and high-quality design, Make it here in the USA, and Connect with the community through rides, events, and projects. Giving a nod to the latter, we introduced Ornot Commissions, an initiative to connect with our community through artistic collaborations. The first project with artist Chris McNally.
Chris had one requirement - whatever we created had to be functional. Working together on a special edition Bar Bag/MacGyver set seemed like the obvious choice - a dash of function mixed with a big chunk of beautiful. We knew that Chris' watercolor style was going to work perfectly on the bags, and be a great example of our printing quality. Chris set off to work, creating original art featuring scenes of the city on a ride from his studio to our office.
Ornot created a limited edition run of a Bar Bag and MacGyver set with Chris’ work. This project was very successful and will mark a point in time for the brand and the artist. Each time you see one of these bags out on the road, you know you’re seeing something special.
