They reached out to SABER, one of the most recognized and respected graffiti artists out of California, for a collaboration on their line of sustainable, hand-crafted bags. They feature SABER’s distinctive bold style and are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, helping to keep plastic out of our oceans. This is just the beginning for 8hz, a company looking to change the way we think about sustainable fashion. Stay tuned for what’s next from 8hz Founders Mateo Neri, Frankie Carone and Jason Chuan.
