i’ve been to la and back and la and back and washington and back again.  all signs point the hudson valley.  i just can’t stay away. 

“why do i even keep trying to run?” i ponder upon my return. 

there’s beauty, history and community.  but a void needs to be filled.  a piece of culture, of style, of passion of blackness that i couldn’t seem to find a connection with in upstate, ny. 

the old ways felt tired and it’s time to show a different side of small town living that represents the modern youth’s need for freedom of expression. 

so i shifted my energy to attract my tribe.  like-minded people who want diversity and its beauty to be shown. 

and that’s just who we are: a local streetwear brand uncovering all the color of the valley; aka hudson valley eclectics.
