watson backpack valerie

What do you get when a startup CEO and a SUITS TV costume buyer join forces?

BOOM. Magic.


When startup friends started making requests for a better backpack, founder Valerie Crisp took her expertise to Silicon Valley. A 3rd generation entrepreneur, product designer, and former costumes buyer (Suits, Nikita, American Gods), Crisp has a knack for leveraging form and function to create new categories of usability and design. Fast forward through 400 hours of user research, dozens of prototypes, and a hit Kickstarter campaign - WATSON is now preparing for launch. 

The WATSON mission is simple. Better products, made better. This means innovating in categories we take for granted, sourcing and manufacturing responsibly, and standing by our products no matter what.

WATSON is partnered with engineering and manufacturing specialists, cutters, sewers, and fulfillment partners in the Toronto, Canada.
