The story of Earth4863 begins with a love for vintage and a quest to seek cool new sweatshirts to wear during fashion week. Upon discovering and collecting of vintage hoodies and sweatshirts, I began making adjustments to the pieces, to up-cycle them for today time. I started tie-dye them myself, experimenting with new technique that I had learn from my time in the fashion industry. Then I was fascinated by Sacred Geometry patterns, and how mystical they are that I started to apply them onto my sweatshirts. I loved the whole process so much, being able to be creative, but solving a problem at the same time that I knew I had landed on something special. While wearing the new sweatshirts that I had designed, I was starting to get a lot of request from friends and strangers to custom make them for them to buy that a couture sweatshirt business was born.
The idea for Earth4863 from day one was to create one-of-a-kind, limited-edition luxury designs with a commitment to mindful, ethical production and sustainability. After my many years in the fashion industry, I had saw first hand how wasteful the industry that I loved was. I was so disillusion and ashamed on what was happening that I decide to bring a change. At Earth4863, our limited run sweatshirts and hoodies are all handcrafted under ethical conditions in Los Angeles. All of our clothing is made within a few miles from our office, meaning we can visit our factories weekly to ensure fair wages are given and the workers are being treated fairly. By using only locally sourced, up-cycled, we had created special pieces that you will come back to over and over again. We seek out the best up-cycle and recycle practices to bring you fun, unique and effortless pieces that are as stylish as they are sustainable.
Thank you for being on this journey of sustainability with us, together I know we can make a different. One stitch at a time.
