Collection: GET PUNK WITH IT!
Get Punk With It! means it’s time to break out,
Get Punk With It! means it’s time to take out,
That charge that’s in charge of pollutin’ yo mind
Let go, don’t you know, the past is behind.
Statement: Anarchism in Spain has historically gained more support and influence than anywhere else, especially before Francisco Franco’s victory in the Spanish Civil War of 1936–39. While they were not ultimately successful with their uprising, these early anarchists planted a seed that remains important to this day, particularly to anarchists who look at their achievements as a historical precedent of anarchism’s validity.
Small anarchist groups still dot Spanish cities and countrysides, as they do in many parts of the world. They occupy vacant buildings, warehouses, abandoned farms and long lost homesteads. They believe in creating, community and art above the violence and social oppression of their country’s politics. They work tirelessly to create spaces of social interaction, cultural exchange, and abundance. They make do with what they have, and rely scavenging missions for their food, infrastructure, and other necessities.
Most of all, they reject the idea that jobs happen from 9 to 5, debt is inevitable, and authority is necessary.
Their style is unmistakable; mandated by the necessity of camouflage while on nightly missions, defense against the local riot police, and a desire to contrast the incessant consumerism of urban fashion.
This collection seeks to inspire the punk within; the inner voice that will not stop questioning norms, that impulse pushing us to go against the grain; whether it be with a style choice or a lifestyle decision.
Materials and Process: All pieces are made by hand. Bicycle inner-tubes, tires, Cables, precious metals, semi-precious gemstones, and bark-tanned leather (an Old World tanning process notable for the absence of chromium, a heavy metal, in the tanning process) are used in the fabrication of the designs.
