Scout Original was established in Brooklyn, New York in 2010 as a creative firm, with a concept to contribute to the fashion world with an earth conscious approach as priority.
Ryan and Olga Sneden are the husband and wife team behind Scout Original. We strive to create beautiful things in collaboration with nature.
The mission of Scout Original is to do our part in being responsible for the products we create in an industry of abundance and disposal.
We believe that every individual decision is important and can make a huge impact in making a better world. This is why, in our production, we use a combination of sustainable materials like hemp, along with vegetable tanned leather, up cycled fabrics and recycled materials. We make limited edition, one of a kind pieces.
Custom finishing and design are also a big part of Scout Original. Co-founder and artist Ryan Sneden has over 14 years experience working in collaboration with other companies to achieve their goals. Ryan has been developing finishes and producing small Limited Edition collections for Ralph Lauren and Double RL, along with other companies, before showing his first collection as Scout Original at Barney's New York in 2011.
Since its conception, Scout Original regularly contributes to American editorials such as Vogue and Interview and has been included in stories for Clutch, Free & Easy amongst other Japanese magazines. Working with top photographers and stylists in the fashion industry.
