The Katsumu team is dedicated to provide alternative urban clothing for those who enjoy the hidden messages that your fashion can express. The name was inspired by three different components; magic mushrooms, tsunami and the name かつみ (katsumi).
- Magic Mushrooms are known to help create alternative perspectives by bending your state of mind.
- Tsunamis are strong tides that can cause catastrophic change to cities and surroundings.
- The meaning of かつみ (Katsumi) in Japanese; “overcome, oneself”.
Together they created Katsumu, a community brand that enjoys pushing the boundaries of commonality.
Our branding ethos remains in a fluid state to symbolise the weave between the ever-changing perspective of reality within our multi-cultural streets. Our designs can vary from culture jamming ideals to light-hearted tongue in cheek banter.
