Beauty, Quality and #doDifferent
“They don’t make it like that anymore”. This catch-all phrase is so often repeated to describe the modern experience of quantity over quality.

We see the effect of this in oceans and rivers around the world, and the devastating effect it has on animal and human life. read more »
Funky Threads and #doDifferent
T-shirts make a statement. Maybe it’s a fashion statement. Maybe it’s a statement about yourself and how you want the world to see you.
