ORIGINALS: The National Bureau Of Product Research

In the debut episode of our ORIGINALS series, we go inside the business of Austin-based fashion label, The National Bureau of Product Research.

Led by founder Ryan Britton, The National Bureau is inspired by his many years as a NASA contractor. He uses archived NASA blueprints and planetary maps to create garments that tell the story of space exploration and science.

We met with Britton at his house near the original Kerbey Lane Cafe, and we interviewed him in his kitchen and in his detached backyard office space. We also drove with Britton to visit his printer in Houston, where we filmed the dye-sublimation process.

Bonus coverage of The National Bureau is coming soon and will be available exclusively to our subscribers.
