It all started at the local skateshop, a long time ago. We would meet up there every day after school. There was a couch and a VCR, we'd watch videos and talk about new tricks. It felt good, reassuring. It inspired comfort. A hOme away from home.
Time has since kept feeding that simple idea: to offer a piece of hOme to everyone, even when your journey leads you to strange places. A hOme away from home.
We wanted to take that feeling with us, and share it with our friends. So we did, two brothers and a couple of t-shirts. That was 12 years ago... we were kids.
We grew up: snowboarding, doing graphic design, travelling... new friends and life's experiences became ingredients. A third brother joined us while time kept feeding that simple idea: to offer a piece of hOme to everyone, even when your journey leads you to strange places.
Where and When became inspirations, and we knew we had to concentrate on the things you could take with you practically anywhere, because penguins can't carry much on their backs. Yes that's right, penguins. Somehow they got involved, and teddy bears, too. Go figure. They got on board along the journey from Switzerland to Canada. Now they just stick around. But this is another story altogether... oh wait, it's not:
All this is, is a story about travelling in order to experience the meaning of the place we each choose to call hOme. It is a story about time and space, about small things and big ideas, and how going places affects you, even if it's just down the street.
The door is open, welcome hOme.
