Introducing Bridge & Burn: The Brand That Creates Pieces Inspired by Nature
Founded by a former software engineer who left that path to start a t-shirt line, Bridge & Burn was born out of the idea of stepping out on your own and burning the bridge of working for anyone else. Since making the decision to start his company, Erik Prowell has taken Bridge & Burn from a t-shirt line to a full collection boutique in Portland and recently expanded to Los Angeles. While the line continues to grow internationally, the focus of the brand has stayed true to it’s core values: functional design, beautiful detailing and incredible fit.
Inspired by nature and the beauty of their hometown in Portland, the brand has become known for it’s outdoor style and casual sophistication. They’re also motivated by community and have collaborated with brands including Adidas, Columbiaknit, OMFGCO, Need Supply, Wood&Faulk and more. But their desire to build a community goes even deeper. In 2015, Bridge & Burn launched their philanthropic initiative by giving one percent of all retail sales to local charities.
The boutique carries men and women’s apparel and goods that are designed in Portland and meant to take you straight from dinner to the woods. You’ll know exactly what that means when you’re browsing their best selling pieces.
