The Making of the Cup Set

This Fall we introduced the cup set to our line of goods and it has quickly become a favorite. I wanted to share a little backstory on how this design came to be and the original inspiration behind it.

Our cup set was inspired by a vintage steel and leather set I purchased from a second hand store called Stadsmission in Stockholm a few years ago. I brought the set back with me to San Francisco and after a short time the leather strap broke. I always had an eye out for another set after that, but never came across a good replacement. That's why I decided to create a cup set for Yield.

The goal was to create something simple, useful and playful that improved upon the original classic design. I think the result is a happy marriage of Scandinavian inspiration and California lifestyle.
