THE HIPPEST ACCESSORY: NINETEEN13



SEATTLE’S TATOO ARTIST LIVEN UP STANLEY BEVERAGE CONTAINERS

Words Judith Ecochard

Oudoor Retailer Market, SLC



We applaud all attempts at recycling plastic water bottles. Even the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week-Bryant Part Tents had recycling bins.

What’s really eco-chic though is carrying a re-usable water bottle filled with whatever…so we were jazzed to see the urban cool display at the iconic brand Stanley exhibitor’s stall…that proudly served up a “Not Your Grandpa’s Stanley.”

The new generation of drinkwear gear, Nineteen13 is “made for the mobile life…from city streets to the outdoors.”

Five cutting edge styles: a recycled and recyclable 16oz mug, a 24 oz BPA Free Water Bottle, a 24oz Stainless Steel Water Bottle, a 16 oz Stainless Steel Vacuum Bottle and a 16oz Insulated Travel Mug---- all sport urban edgy graphics (snakes, winged skulls) in shades of, brown, beige, grey and black (of course)…with slashes of bold orange and red.








We think, this is the hippest way to go and felt positively happenin’ carrying our BPA Free Water Bottle around.






As noted in the press release:

“We have taken all that we have learned in the last 100 years and applied it to make a product that is relevant to an active lifestyle” explains Ken Mitchell, VP Marketing and Product Development.






A fitting tribute.
