Ten years ago, the Portland International Airport (PDX) announced that the beloved teal carpet installed in the ‘80s would be replaced. It was about the same that we saw the fascination with the carpet blow up on Instagram.
When you were at PDX you took a photo of your feet on the recognizable pattern unlike any other airport flooring- it is how you signaled you were home, headed out of town or visiting. It became an iconic piece of traveling to and from Portland.
It has been a long time since we have seen anything PDX carpet and frankly, we miss it. So in comes the carpet.
The PDX carpet design that is printed on our best selling Long Haul Cap is the pattern replaced in 2015 and we wish was still on the floors of our airport. The Long Haul Cap is a five panel lightweight and breathable design made for the run. It is a slightly lower profile fit than our past models and fits like the Cosmic and Wildflowers Caps.
