After leaving a billion dollar technology company where he created things used by billions of people, friend-of-the-site Matt Katsaros set out to create goodness that's physical instead of digital. The result? Flint. A gear company with some amazing handmade backpacks, tote bags and aprons worthy of anyone with an appreciation for quality, style, and a love for the outdoors.
You'll never meet anyone as passionate about creating as this guy, and that passion fuels his desire to be involved in every step of the products. He even works directly with the farmers and fabric weavers who produce the textiles and forages his own dye materials. It's amazingly personal and a foreign experience compared to other big businesses in the same space.
All of Flint's products are totally made to order, so expect a small wait (usually about 2-4 weeks). Fortunately for readers of Airows, you'll get a 10% discount if you order by October 11, 2013, just make sure and tell Matt you saw this post when you're in talks about having your bag or apron made.
