BEHIND THE COLLECTION: THE CORBETT NAMESAKE

The inspiration for the names of Clark & Mayfield bags come from our beautiful hometown of Portland, Oregon. For our latest release of cork laptop backpacks, we chose the name "Corbett."

Corbett is a small community along the Historic Columbia River Highway, just outside of Portland.

Its location envelops the tiny town in some of Oregon's most beautiful scenery. Next door to Crown Point, a State Park overlooking the Columbia Gorge, Corbett also marks the start of a scenic drive past numerous waterfalls and hiking routes.

The name of the community originates from a prominent pioneer and Senator, Henry W. Corbett, who purchased a farm in the area in 1885.

Although Corbett is not officially registered as a city, it's a remarkable place that highlights the beauty of this place we call home. With our laptop backpack's unique, natural cork exterior, it seemed only fitting for this collection to share the Corbett name.
