Herschel Receives Most Promising Retailer – Foreign Brand Category for the 2016 Outstanding Filipino Retailers Award

July 31, 2017

One of the sought-after brands from Vancouver, Herschel Supply, a design driven global accessories brand that produces quality products with a fine regard for detail was founded in 2009 by brothers Jamie and Lyndon Cormack. Herschel finds home in the Philippines through Primer Group of Companies in 2011.

With its utilitarian-inspired designs, it is not surprising that Herschel was easily loved by the Philippine market – from college students through young professionals.
