For Ashleigh Smith, the designer behind The Atlantic Equipment Project, her environment has always dictated her lifestyle. She was raised on the side of Benbulben and grew up surfing, bodyboarding and camping. After studying Industrial Design for 6 years in both the Netherlands and Limerick, she returned home to Strandhill, Co. Sligo. Her collection of backpacks and satchels are designed with her active lifestyle in mind. Each bag is constructed using the highest quality materials, creating functional bags that will last a lifetime.
