About

Explicitly stated; not merely implied

uchi clothing was born out of a desire to express the lifestyles, sciences and art that inspire us.

Growing up immersed in Hip hop culture, I've always believed that Hip Hop is more than the usual depiction of rap music, dance and graffiti, etc,. I wanted to create a brand that showed an intelligent and deeper understanding of the culture, and so, began uchi clothing. Originally it was to be called "house" clothing, but the name was quickly changed whilst I was working as a typesetter of Japanese manuals and learning the language. The Japanese word for home and family, "uchi", has a much deeper and cultural meaning, and represents a more universal concept of 'where someone belongs to'. It was exactly how I saw Hip Hop and so it was a perfect fit for the brand!

I like to consider uchi as a Hip Hop brand because the skills and dedication to master crafts and disciplines, and to be true and authentic when delivered, is Hip Hop. Whether it be music, science, mathematics or horology, this essence of Hip hop is why I do what I do, and how it is expressed.

Each T shirt design is a track, each collection is an album.

A great deal of time and thought goes into creating what I hope are timeless designs that'll still look good long after fashions change. There is a history and methodology behind what we do that sometimes may not be apparent at first (or second) glance. Like the old-school tune that still sounds good today, each T shirt is a classic track you'll never tire of wearing. Eventually, you may get one or two scratches on it, but only because you've played it too much!

peace, unity, love and have fun!
