The majority of our profits go directly to the artists! We practice profit sharing on every item we sell, and give more back to the artist per sale than any other organization we know. The more we sell an item for, the more our artists make. This means our costs are much higher due to the business paying out so much to the artists. 


All of our clothing and artwork is made by either our small team or by our small business partners using the highest quality materials available. We use people we know and trust to hand make each item, nothing is mass produced or made by large corporations. 


We typically only produce a small edition of 50-150 of any one piece of art or clothing.  We want to keep each design special to our audience and not oversaturate. While it keeps our items more special, it also costs a lot to produce anything in such a small amount. Often we are negotiating the lowest possible amount our partners will create.
