A few weeks ago I overheard some people talking about a local guy who makes really cool cycling caps out of classy, recycled, thrift store fabrics. Then, at the recent Multnomah County Bike Fair I ran into him. His name is Shaun Deller. He calls his caps, “Recyclist Apparel.”
According to Deller:
The idea is to create a line of functional and fashionable apparel for the cycling community by reinventing quality thrift store clothing and fabrics. I’m inspired by the early days of cycling and a desire to recycle.”
His business is just getting off the ground, but the great folks over at River City Bikes have already snatched some up. They go for $32 a piece and they’re available in wool or cotton.
For more info call (503) 227-0975 or email Shaun directly at dellershaun[at]yahoo[dot]com
Good luck Shaun! The bike industry is in dire need of more functional and fashionable clothing.
