Trakke - Inshriach Bothy

Trakke have developed a Camp Shower made from scout green canvas, a colour synonymous with Black’s of Greenock who used to produce the brigade’s official tents. This design presents a lightweight product allowing it to be easily transportable. In situ, a pulley system enables it to be lowered for filling with hot water from the kettle then raised again to above head height for use. Its 20 litre capacity allowing for a 5 minute hot shower. Alec Farmer is Creative Director of Trakke, a Glasgow based manufacturer of ‘Bags for Adventurers’. Made using materials sourced from the UK, and shipped worldwide, they recognise Scotland’s legacy as an industrial powerhouse. They are interested in Glasgow as a centre for industry, its connections to more rural areas of Scotland, and more broadly the use of Scottish textiles in outdoor pursuits and sporting traditions.
