Captivating at the intro video, Climb That Damn Mountain plays out with cinematic passion. “Tempe Arizona – June 12, 2010 – 11:43 pm – The first Stone and Cloth backpack.”
Tell me more!
Talk about a man on a mission. Pumped up from reaching his goal of climbing the highest peak in Africa, Matthew Clough learned on the descent that his porter Benson (who had carried his heavy rucksack for a week) didn’t earn enough money to put a child through school.
Light bulbs started popping – with a desire to help and a passion for design, he was determined to make an impact. This is the inspiration from which Stone and Cloth was born. He purchased a sewing machine and constructed a backpack named “The Benson,” now a signature piece in the collection and reminder of the journey from there to here.
The activation of passion + purpose, sprinkled with a little faith = a line of products constructed to help others. “Your purchase helps provide scholarships for students in need.” Divine inspiration meets divine aesthetic. Click on over to Stone and Cloth for a little retail therapy, that quite literally, “carries an education.” Purchase with purpose.
