Citing Native American culture, military, and vintage Americana as its biggest references, Heirloom was created as a zeitgeist fashion brand determined to resurrect ideas and styles from generations past. It is by no coincidence that the founder of the brand's genealogy can be traced back to Choctaw Indian heritage.
Creative Director, Scott Burr, attributes the birth of Heirloom's spirit and ideas to a trip to the American Southwest during his teens. Returning from his trip with stories of the rich piñon scents, and paintbrush landscapes, Burr was inspired to explore the history of his nation more deeply. Looking into his past, he found that his grandfather had served in WWI as a fighter pilot. Enthralled by the innovation of military textiles and the borrowed traditions of Native American construction, Burr dreamt of a brand that would pay homage to the ancestral traditions of indigenous American tribes, while marrying the materials and innovation of the modern technological era.
