100% Reclaimed Changing the planet one tee at a time.
HYPERCLASH design has always been centered on the belief for the need to reduce, recycle, and reuse. Our society is geared for the consumption of products that are used briefly and then disposed; this is especially true with clothing. Over 20 billion pounds of clothing ends up in our landfills every year.
HYPERCLASH utilizes reclaimed materials featuring rough edges, symbolic of urban lifestyle yet designed to reflect urban chic; representing an earthy and honest reflection of life. I am driven to do everything possible to minimize my ecological footprint in the clothing I create by primarily using recycled tee shirts, all of which were destined to landfills.
The company is known for its original designs and product branding for the eco conscious consumer. My collection consists of restructuring cloth from tee shirts with varied colors and patterns and once assembled become unique one of a kind creations. By producing clothing from reclaimed materials, my business minimizes its impact on the environment, while maintaining innovative, cutting edge fashion, the HYPERCLASH trademark. All my products are handmade in the USA from earth friendly sustainable, recycled, reclaimed or organic materials.
I use a vertically integrated business model, which minimizes the use of sub-contractors and offshore labor. Sewing, photography, marketing, distribution, and design all happen at my Santa Fe, New Mexico studio.
HYPERCLASH leverages art and design to advance the business process, while continuing to pioneer industry standards of social and environmental responsibility in the workplace.
