We’re excited to welcome a new brand to the Homecamp family: FIELD – ISSUE. Founded by Sean Peel in 2013, FIELD – ISSUE has a vision of creating quality products that inspire you to be authentic. We chat with Sean about the brand’s birth, inspiration and intricate processes.
How did FIELD – ISSUE come to be?
FIELD – ISSUE was born out of the want to have natural and sustainably-sourced products in the marketplace. All of our products are handmade using only the highest quality, sustainably-sourced raw materials. All of the Products are 100% recyclable, and can be upcycled or repurposed after use.
What was the inspiration for the brand?
The inspiration for FIELD – ISSUE was to offer a range of products that are unique in design. We found there wasn’t a great deal of unique and high-quality grooming products available for men, so we set about designing a range specifically for that market. We ensure all the range has low environmental impact and contains absolutely no plastic.
How was the brand grown since these early days?
The growth of the FIELD – ISSUE range has been slow and organic but has started to gain momentum in recent times due to an increase in product offering.
What does the future hold?
The FIELD – ISSUE product range will continue to grow over time, still retaining the same principles we have always used: natural, organic wherever possible, and premium quality and plastic free. We will also be focusing on increasing brand awareness of the range as we continue to promote the brand through the media – electronically and in printed formats.
Tell us a little about the process involved in making your products?
All of the products are made in our workshop on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, with majority of our raw materials being sourced from Australian businesses. We strive to ensure our products are ethically and sustainably sourced.
Where is your favourite place to adventure in Australia?
Without a doubt it would be the Sunshine Coast hinterland, we live by the coast and love to getaway up into the mountains and get off the grid for a while. The scenery and land up there is pristine and breathtaking.
