CRAZY COVID TIMES!!
In the small coastal town of Dunsborough, Western Australia, a unique concept was birthed amidst the tumultuous backdrop of the Covid-19 lockdowns. Gathered around the kitchen bench, a family partnership was formed. Leanne, the visionary and driving force, Caen, the talented artist, and Mike who has no special skills other than being able to add up.
CHALLENGES - NUMEROUS & OVERWHELMING
It's crazy to think that three years ago, Emotiv People was just an idea. Those years were filled with steep learning curves - understanding the intricacies of clothing design, diving deep into the world of fabrics, learning about different printing techniques, finding and partnering with manufactures, and finally negotiating the world of digital marketing. The challenges were numerous, and often overwhelming.
We would be lying if we said at times, it felt as though it would never happen but through persistence and in some cases just plain stubbornness our vision became real.
MERGE THE TATTOO WORLD WITH CLOTHING!
The basic premise was to merge the expressive world of tattoo art with everday clothing such as active and street wear. The symbiotic relationship between tattoo art and apparel felt instinctual. Tattoos are, after all, wearable art - an artist's vision coming to life on the canvas of human skin. Why not extend this canvas to the fabric we wear every day?
Sounds simple but little did we know the challenges that lay ahead.
COLLABORATE WITH REAL ARTISTS
We aim to collaborate with a wide range of tattoo artists, bringing their individual styles to the forefront of fashion. With every collaboration, Emotiv People ensures the creation of limited-edition street and active wear that stands out, not just as clothing, but as art. Every artist lends a unique flair, ensuring that no two ranges are alike.
BE PART OF OUR STORY
Today, as we proudly present our first range, launched in May 2023, our journey feels both rewarding and exhilarating. We're filled with both admiration and gratitude for our collaborating artists and for the wearable art we've been able to create together.
We invite you to be a part of our story. To don a piece of art, to wear your emotions on your sleeve—literally—and to join us as we continue this exciting journey
