We are a clothing company based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, specializing in silk-screened tees, shirts and totes. Our designs take inspiration from the industrial buildings, Coney Island, and the waterfront and streetscape of New York City past and present.
I grew up on the West Coast but always had a fascination withe New York City. I finally moved here to earn my MFA in painting from Hunter College in the early '90s. After becoming creatively bored with working as a freelance graphic designer, I decided I must figure out how to create a living based the industrial-sra structures, streetscapes and awe-inspiring architecture (not to mention those bridges!) that drew me to New York in the first place.
Looking out my apartment window in my Red Hook apartment window one day and seeing the giant red iron "R" sign I thought "why not a tshirt?" I felt I found a niche no one else had...
