Urban Renewal | Urban Outfitters’ Local Production

IMG_4391 IMG_4378Who would of  have known that inside a seemingly abandoned warehouse, in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia, an Urban outfitters production house was right in our neighborhood.  Well we didn’t, until a visit from our friend Daren from Rothco. He mentioned that he has a friend in the area who works for Urbs.  Once we were introduced to Joey there was an instant connection.  Joey introduced us to Aaron the current buyer for Urban Renewal and the rest of the creative  staff.  This group of artist and pickers work under the banner of Urban Renewal.  The pieces are totally one-of-a-kind, handcrafted in Philadelphia from vintage dead-stock and surplus materials sourced from around the world.  So the degrees of separation have been lifted and like minded neighbors are united! We were inspired to learn that what we thought was a new trend, from reworking vintage and recycling source material, was the practice of Urban Outfitters for the past 20 years. Just when we thought we’ve invented a wheel, we learned  that there’s nothing new, it’s only renewal.

Search+Rescue the Naval Yard | Urbn Summer MRKT Photos

boy girlgov.The Urban Summer Market was the coolest market we vended all summer.  Stu from Three potato four recommended that we were invited along with a well curated list of talent.  The Naval Yard is an Oasis of Art and Style.  It seemed that the most stylish and creative people Philadelphia has to offer gathered together for lunch.  We were surrounded by huge docked naval ships and large Industrial re-purposed sculptures.  And the coolest part of all was all of the new amazing friends we made.  The event truly lifted a few degrees of separation, learning that alot of people did not live too far from us in Port Richmond. Sometimes a proper medium is all you need to gather local like minds. See more pics… Continue reading “Search+Rescue the Naval Yard | Urbn Summer MRKT Photos”
