History of Herschel
Founded by brothers Jamie and Lyndon Cormack, the Herschel Supply Co. was named after the small town in Canada where generations of the brother’s family grew up. Herschel was open for business in 2009, and is based in Vancouver, Canada. Both brothers had ties in the fashion world, with Lyndon having represented Vans shoes, and Jamie having worked at K2 Sports. They knew how the fashion world worked and they used that to their advantage. They decided to focus on more than just design and trend but also focused on nostalgia within the history of bags.
