Three years ago, I would not have thought that Crab Terror Island would be bringing women together, creating a community and offering support just from wearing the same hoodie.
Three years ago I just had an idea, to put myself out there and do something I felt like I was being called to do. Three years ago, I just had a simple idea, nothing like what I have witnessed it grow into.
More and more I hear from women, about the head nods they get from other women, when they wear a hoodie from CTI. The conversations they have with strangers, all because they are an Islander. What does this say about my brand? What does this say about the connections we want or need?
Some would say, and I did for a long time, that I put art on clothing. Its not that big of a thing. Funny though, those hoodies are taking on a life of their own. I mean, a head nod from someone who is wearing Island in a Box, or casual conversation from a stranger because you are wearing a Crab Terror Island design - this is what it is about! Finding inspiration. Working on our own goals. Being a community.
For me, Crab Terror Island allows me to not feel alone sometimes. It gives me a community, in a sea of strangers. Knowing that people are reacting, doing, being, all because of maybe a drawing I turned into a tshirt! What an incredible experience this is right now!
So the next time you look over and see someone wearing that hoodie you bought, raise your hand and wave. Say hi. You are Islanders. There is a whole community of us, just waiting to show our support.
Thanks for reading! Make sure to keep in touch!
