Welcome to Basecamp Design Co. At Basecamp Design Co., we believe in creating and outfitting customers with uplifting vintage style apparel and products that cultivate joy and inspiration for the everyday climb of life. As you set off on your journey each day, we aim to be the base camp where you find items that provide inspiration, strength, and encouragement to keep climbing with a full heart and a strong spirit. We carry made to order apparel and are constantly working on and adding new items to the shop. Each item is designed and crafted by hand with love in our studio just for you. Please stop back often to see what new inspiring items have been added to the site.
Our studio is inspired by the life and faith of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati (1901-1925). Born into a wealthy family, Pier Giorgio had a great love for the poor, charitable works, and social justice, and was an avid mountain climber and practical joker. Because of his great love for Christ and his faith, he sacrificed all he had to give to those he felt less fortunate than himself.
Pier Giorgio felt a closeness to God as he climbed the mountains of Italy. He saw one's earthly life as a climb toward heaven and constantly encouraged all who knew him to live lives of faith, love and charity, so as to reach the summit of heaven. A quote often attributed to him is, "Verso l'alto!", meaning, "To the heights!".
If there's an item that is sold out that you would like to see return to the shop, or if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about any of our products, please do not hesitate to contact us. We love to hear from our customers!
May your journey be filled with joy and strength. Climb on and climb inspired. Verso l'alto! To the heights!
