The Atlantic Equipment Project (AE) is an outdoor brand that designs and makes carry equipment inspired by Atlantic adventure.
We have a growing collection of backpacks, satchels and luggage made from hardwearing and natural fabrics. All our products are designed with a comprehensive industrial process and manufactured in Sligo. Our ambition is to become a global brand and develop a large-scale manufacturing base in the Northwest of Ireland.
Ashleigh believes this project is one of the many results of 6 years of classical Industrial Design study and work, lots of years of bodyboarding, surfing and muddy salty adventure amongst the rainy, windy beauty of her home in the West of Ireland. Ashleigh studied her MSc at The Technical University of Delft, with her base knowledge of the design process established at The University of Limerick.
