A Calamitous Collaboration with Calamityware!
Posted On : Feb 04, 16
I first noticed Calamityware on Kickstarter, where the line of imaginative China showing disastrous scenes painted in a traditional fashion was the perfect mix of "refined" and "ridiculous". Perfect!
I reached out to Don Moyer, the mad genius illustrator and founder of Calamityware, asking if he'd be interested in designing a pair of socks. He was!
We spent some weeks going back and forth through a number of iterations of various themes, before finally deciding that "robot apocalypse" was a perfect pattern - at once both "serious" and "surreal". Don quickly adapted to the artwork style needed to build out our hosiery patterns - and the result is one of our favorite new designs.
Please welcome "Robot Uprising", a fun pattern of angry robots parading around your ankles. Crafted at a 3rd generation hosiery mill in Colombia out of fine Peruvian Pima cotton, these socks sheathe your feet in sophistication, while shouting that you aren't just part of the machine!
