Legend has it, GI's in post WWII Yokosuka, Japan, would bring their bomber jackets into the Toyo Tailor shop for "souvenir" hand embroidery - turning their jackets into something special to bring home. The style caught on and they were soon being made of surplus parachute nylon & silk. The tradition continued through the Korean and Vietnam Wars, where the darker sides of the conflicts were often mirrored in the design motifs.
The Tiger patch was made to look like the hand embroidered tiger on one of The Badweather's Korean War Souvenir Jackets.
The Ampal Creative and The Badweather share Southern California roots and both were created in Los Angeles. They each spent about a decade in LA, before heading North and South respectively. This pack, a long time in the making, became souvenirs - an ode to the goodtimes and the bad, spent in the City of Angels and found in both creator's DNAs.
