Porter Lyons believes in preserving culture. A portion of all proceeds goes to causes that protect a culture’s fundamental identity. Porter Lyons’ first collection is inspired by New Orleans and the Bayou, and part of the proceeds benefits wetland preservation.
Our world gets smaller and more uniform every day. Changes in technology, globalization, and westernization are forcing many original cultures to dissolve. Cultural uniqueness becomes lost in an environment of conformity. Preserving the originality of a place and its people allows us to embrace the diverse riches of our world. In every collection, Porter Lyons explores a single culture and highlights the wonders and idiosyncrasies that set it apart. Documenting culture through design.
