a play off of our production theory, a homonymic name defining our
inspirations and motivations...
Designs': an aggressive messaging system remixed (foe) into publicly
accepted designs (faux).
All our products are home sweatshopped (we sweat, we'll send you
some if you need proof) and under retail priced (we resist de$igner
market value). All our products are sewn and screen printed to
last and created to the best of our ability; everything we make
is unique with errors, drips, extra stitches and love. We strive
to work with only fair trade, second hand, salvaged and donated
materials. We are attempting to embrace a reclamation of our lives
by working to support ourselves with our ideas; through a lifestyle
of self production we are resisting, and encouraging others to
resist, the over production of large companies glutting the world
market. Foe Designs is their enemy.
