  • Vendor Highlight: Soaring Scavengers

    Soaring Scavengers

    Vancouver Island Pagan Pride welcomes Soaring Scavengers!

    Soaring ScavengersNestled between old growth trees and the Pacific Ocean, Soaring Scavengers officially began in 2015.  Inspired by life and death on Vancouver Island Soaring Scavengers creates high quality, handcrafted leather goods that are rugged enough for everyday use and outdoor adventures.  Though most items are crafted using new, high quality leather, makers Nat and Riley will use natural and recycled materials they have scavenged along the way for specific designs and accents.

    Where did the name Soaring Scavengers come from?  Inspired by the resident turkey vultures living on Vancouver Island, Nat and Riley resonated with these incredible birds and appreciated their ability to scavenge what they need to survive and their community focused approach to life.

    Often misjudged, the turkey vulture is actually a very necessary bird found all around the world. Seen often soaring together in kettles these birds are considered a bird of prey, though they rarely kill for a meal, rather spending their days cleaning up the dead, thus removing harmful bacteria and disease from their environment.  As community birds you’ll often see more than one, flying, eating and sleeping together.
