PHILADELPHIA EAGLES BRENT CELEK LAUNCHES ACCESSORIES LINE
Brent Celek is the latest NFL player to launch a fashionable off-field venture. The Philadelphia Eagles tight end partnered with Jillian Dilorio, former VP of Sales and Retail Marketing at TOMS Shoes, to develop REVISIT, a collection of luxury, handcrafted accessories inspired by the natural beauty of National Parks. With the company’s Quarter-back model, 25% of profits are used to protect the future of National Parks, as each purchase supports one of four selected parks.

REVISIT’s first collection, dubbed “The Founders Collection” is a 16-piece range including bracelets, necklaces, backpacks, totes, travel cases, money bands, iPad cases, folios, and journals. The unisex items are Made in America and the company partners with local designers and artisans. Products were designed with materials such as soft chocolate brown leather, and feature details like mold made from actual arrowhead and antique copper zippers. Prices range from $50 for a leather bracelet to $1,400 for a weekender bag. The company described the inspiration behind the collection:
The same natural beauty and celebration of our national heritage that infused their mission inform our collection. Elegantly appointed earth tones in rich leathers exude pride of place and embody the idea that quality materials can only improve with age.
“We set out to do this because the parks needed help,” said Celek, who took road trips through nature as a child growing up in Cincinnati. “We knew that we couldn’t do it by ourselves, so we decided to set up a company that would produce beautiful, sustainable products that will last for years.”
