As part of our interview series we took some time to sit down with the founder of Meraki, Chelsea Risling.
Meraki Supply Co was the first company that reached out to us about selling our goods within their store. The moment we got that first email we instantly connected with Chelsea and her brand. Chelsea & Meraki share the same free-spirited passions and visions as we do at Amōs. Their tagline: 'Time for Another Adventure' really says it all.
Meraki is planning on opening it's doors mid October in Calgary, AB Canada. We couldn't be more psyched to be partnered with Chelsea and Meraki and having them be apart of the Amōs family. Oh yeah, be sure to give them a follow on Instagram to stay up on all the action. They might even be giving away some Amōs gear soon :)
Read on to get an inside look at Chelsea and Meraki:
So you've probably seen some of the sick photos of our goods out in the wilderness on our Instagram account - and if you haven't, go check them out! While we'd love to take credit for them, they are the work of a super talented guy named Michael Di Benedetto, better known as Benz. When we first launched back in March of this year he reached out to us to see if we were interested in him doing some photography for us. He thought our goods would look really rad out in the mountains. We were so thrilled and humbled because we couldn't stop drooling over his work. Little did I know what it would become.
Not only is he our go-to photographer for lifestyle photos, he also created the cool vids for our Eli and Zoe bags, along with some graphic design for us. But above all that, we've become really close friends. This dude is super talented, humble, and we're so lucky to have him apart of the Amōs family. We recently had a chance to take a break from our crazy schedules and chat. All photos featured in this post were taken by him. Here's a little more about our good friend:
