Barnaby Killam & Stuart Sproule

Vancouver, British Columbia
Industrial Design

Combining their interest in textiles and soft goods, in 2004, Barnaby Killam and Stuart Sproule established Red Flag Design to create products with both sustainable and aesthetic values. Drawing on both their technical and conceptual expertise, Killam and Sproule sought viable recycled materials with unique properties. In its first commercial line, Red Flag Design uses retired or obsolete boat sails in its distinctive bags called AUM, (Alternate Use Material). Killam is a graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and BCIT and Sproule received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design and a Masters of Design from Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
