The company was started by Scott Ruttle due to a passion for woodworking and design. While helping at a friends heli snowboard company in Thompson Pass, Alaska he realized his woodworking skills were appreciated by those around him. After milling firewood with a chainsaw into a flight of stairs leading to the helicopters he knew he had to expand. The following years were the beginning stages of research and development at Callipyge (Kal-uh-pij-ee).
Callipyge is made with longevity and sustainability being of upmost importance. The standards we set for ourselves is to build products that have life to them through aesthetics and duration. You will also be able to purchase with peace of mind knowing we will make ethical environmental decision.
