About Occult Punks
This project, based in Tokyo, was started in 2015 as a result of a lack of fashionable punk wear available. It then evolved into upcycling old garments as a recourse to the excess waste created by fast fashion. These pre-owned garments are printed on by hand, not mass produced. It takes a lot of time and effort to find pre-owned garments as well as printing on them. My hope is that people appreciate these pieces as art and thus preserve them. Influences include Hat Trickers, L.A. Raw Punk, Descontrol, Japanese and Mexican culture and others. Stay Punk Stay Free!
About the One-Offs
These are printed on pre-owned garments salvaged from various sources. There is zero affiliation or association with the garment manufacturers. The goal of this art project is to create a more sustainable fashion that does not adhere to "seasons", trends or styles.
Why That Price?
The prices are a result of all the resources that it takes into making them: garments, paint, time, and shipping charges. All the proceeds go into making more prints in the future.
