Us Versus Them for Chrome Industries

/ By Graham Nystrom

Someone asked us recently why we don’t make more backpacks. It’s a valid question as many brands offer them each season. For us personally, we like to make sure we would want to use every product we put out. If we couldn’t see ourselves running it in our day to day life, it gets cut. While there’s quite a bit of good looking bags floating around out there using a classic style, we found that the quality and construction were not good enough. To us a backpack is a tool, not a fashion accessory that is supoosed to compliment a WDYWT outfit. If it can’t take the abuse of real life we don’t want it.

DISPOSABLE PHOTO SHOW

/ By Mike Glory

This past Saturday we were proud sponsors of DISPOSABLE Photo show at New Image Gallery in Hollywood:

“Building upon an ongoing project, Disposable: A Photo is a tribute to a period in time when people shuffled through and held photos in their hands. This exhibition shares it’s allegiance to 90’s era values of resourcefulness and thrift and serves as an homage to the disposable camera and the 1 hour photo processing experience. Cheap / easy with a fast food type quality, speedy prints document the destruction. The 1 hour photo exhibit is also a subtle nod to a generation that preceded this shift in photography’s direction. Calling upon those who have had their hand in this process of picture taking and photo collecting and recall curiosity being key in it’s experience.”

Big Thanks to Brandon of The MCHN and for including us and to Ese Victor for connecting the dots. Check out this brief recap, Photos by: MORGNAR of Active Ride Shop.
