Meet Ethnotek: Interview with co-founder Jake Orak


For me, blogging is about more than running giveaway or scheduling family meet-ups. It’s about what brings us there.

It all comes down to the stories.

It’s the stories that I love and the people behind them.

I first connected with Ethnotek via twitter and met the team in real life at the Outdoor Retailer show in January. They are a company that is all about telling the story. Josh, co-founder of Ethnotek, brought tears to my eyes when he said to me, “When we travel, we want to hold that moment. This is what our bags are about.” It’s about saving that moment in time and holding it in our hands.


The artisans they partner with are all about the stories. They are socially responsible and believe in telling the stories of their workers.

Watch the video below to hear how a solo motorcycle journey inspired their company.
