About the speaker

Alec Farmer spent his formative years knee-deep in the skips of Glasgow, searching for reclaimed materials he could use to make brilliant bags from. Today, he is the founder of Trakke - a Scottish outdoor brand specialising in high quality luggage for the everyday adventurer. With a background in graphic design, working for clients ranging from Film4 to the Imperial War Museum, Alec never intended to start his own business. He simply followed his passion for making, and in doing so became an advocate of British manufacturing and all things built to last.
