Joonbug headed down to the Holstee offices to meet brothers Dave and Mike Radparvar, and were impressed to come across a company with serious values about giving back and measuring their impact on the world. It all started with the simple idea to innovate the classic graphic tee, and that little change lead to big things.
One wall of their office is dedicated to idea creation - littered with product prototypes and new concepts. One long table sits central and serves as desk and conference room and is piled with office paper, lap-tops and a lone copy of “The Art of Happiness”. We sat down with this innovative team to talk about their products, goals for the future, and changing the world.
Earth Day's 40th celebration today has momentum to fill the streets with cleaner air, prettier views and best of all, amazing celebrations (see Joonbug's x Blackbook Magazine's Celebration details in the Fashion Calendar).
But to celebrate such an astonishing day, one must wear what they preach, no?
Holstee is celebrating with the launch of limited edition Upcycled tees for men and women; each telling a story through three screenprinting designs.
Our favorite? Holstee's #UCK #AST #ASHION tee.
Holstee expresses their disinterest in fast fashion, with screen printed designs reading #UCK #AST #ASHION; an awareness of companies who involve toxic chemicals within products, disregarding craft, workers, and most importantly the planet.
