The idea for Hook & Irons was born late at night on the back porch of my firehouse. Drinking coffee and waiting for our next run, we were discussing the fire service; its traditions and the history of the job we both love so much. We both found ourselves saying, "wouldn't it be cool if. . .," or, "wouldn't it be great if someone did this. . ." We also talked about what bothered us about the fire service. At some point during that conversation, the seed for Hook & Irons was planted with the idea that we would do our part to celebrate the traditions and the history of the fire service. We decided that we would make items that reflected all of the beauty and history of our job--items that we would be proud to wear and own.
Since our inception in 2012, Hook and Irons Company has been featured in numerous design blogs, including Design.Work.Life, Behance, and Designspiration. Our company can also been seen in Digital Arts Magazine, Dribbble and Pinterest. We've made new friends and we've been able to shine a spotlight on a few of the artists and artistry that makes the fire service so wonderful.
This is the rebirth of fire apparel. Standby to standby. . .
