VANS PRINTS
From a young age I have always been a big fan of skateboarding/BMX and the part VANS played in it’s history. I have just completed a set of prints for  The Other Side Of The Pillow using some of VANS lost and forgotten shoe box designs that VANS themselves had no archive or knowledge of.

Thanks to hunters and gatherers like Henry from The Other Side Of The Pillow, VANS has recently started to acknowledge its rich past by re releasing many of its older designs that they have referenced from Henry’s very own collection. Henry travels the globe searching for VANS from the late 60′s up until the early 90′s, before the company changed from being hand made in the USA to being produced in China were the quality dropped and some of the companies magic was lost.

The prints were recently displayed at the #pillowheat event in London which showcased Henry’s amazing collection of vintage shoes, apparel, and collectables from VANS past.
