Hangtags

Left:
standard seminal hangtag (all products)

Right:
additional seminal RESEARCH PROJECTS™ hangtag (explained below).

We are implamenting new new segment to seminal labelled RESEARCH PROJECTS™ - this will take up 3-5% of the line and will consist of products made from extensive research using developed fabrics, innovative construction & design, and in-house prototyping.

These products will be produced locally, here in Vancouver. RESEARCH PROJECTS™ will most likely be available in higher-end, exclusive retail outlets. The purpose of RESEARCH PROJECTS™ is to always innovate, create, and provide a trickle-down factor of our research into our inline ranges.
