Kyle Ellison’s passion for design began as a child hiking in the mountains of California. Whether in the coastal Santa Cruz mountains or high above the tree line in the Sierra Nevadas, you could often hear excited conversation about the latest gear, and what could be done to make it even better. To this day we find that the most inspiring, innovative, and compelling designs still come from time spent outside.
Trailside Creative, LLC was started in 2012 with the mission to get more people off the couch, and outside! To support this mission the focus at Trailside Creative is to share our passion for making the world a better place through the design of products that support active, outdoor lifestyles.
