5 Questions with David Eagan from Republic of Sol

One of our favorite independent brands is Republic of Sol - handmade in Austin, Texas, made out of upcycled skateboard wood (too cool!). They were one of the very first brands we brought on after discovering them during a sourcing trip to Austin. We had a fun interview with RoS' designer, David Eagan!

What inspires you? 

Just living life and taking time to pause and appreciate how special it is. I get very curious about different things and that seems to lead me down a creative path.

What is your favorite travel destination?

I love travel in general, been to Europe, Asia, Africa and south America. One of my favorite trips was meeting friends that were sailing the Caribbean, and the freedom it brought as we were able to pull up to any random beach we wanted to. 

What are your paradise island essentials?

Some good friends to share the experience... And some drinks ;-)

What are you listening to right now?

Andrew McMahon and the wilderness, released a new album about a month ago, been following his music projects for years.

Any news you want to share?

Republic of Sol recently collaborated with Vineyard Sun on some very cool cork glasses. It was a fun project to be a part of and I am excited to see how they do.
