We’re happy to announce the arrival of Vapour Clothing to the Eyeball Online Shop. Vapour is a Woolacombe based brand that is doing big things right now, featuring the artwork, photography and designs of local artists. They’ve got an expanding team of professional BMX riders, surfers, artist & musicians and are getting regular coverage in Front, 247 & Huck magazine, as well as building a strong online blog following. Check out the shop now to see some of their gear!
”We initially started the brand back in 2009 not to be the biggest corporate brand in the world, but merely a small project. Coming from a design background we wanted to transform our designs to canvas, to publish them and show people what we loved to do. Our love lies within action sports, fashion, music and art graphic design. From a simple idea we printed up our first set of tee’s and went to work selling to friends and family. Coming from principally a surf based, streetwear conscious town, people seemed to like the first logo based designs so we decided to create a website.
Well more than two years have passed and we have expanded and grown in ways we didn’t initially believe. We have gone from simple t-shirts to full printing of garments ourself and even expanding into custom headwear.
We will always have our love for design and never want to forget how things started. We’re staying independent. Run by real people just like you. No corporatism checking profit margins and sales figures every month just a love for sharing what we create.”
We’ll be working closely with Vapour over the course of 2012, with a few collaborations on the horizon – so watch this space!
