It’s Our Thing is the collaboration between the graphic designer PMKFA, based in Tokyo, and Osaka’s finest screen-printer Sweatshop Union. It’s Our Thing materialized in early 2006 after both PMKFA’s Micke and Sweatshop Union’s Matthias for years had by themselves grown the will to create something of their own.

The first line came out in April 2006, and named “The First Ten”, followed by the “Third Vision” line that was shown at a couple of exhibitions in Tokyo and Barcelona and contributed to spread It’s Our Thing to more shops worldwide.

The third line “Etno” that you can see in the shop right now is a leap forward for us and shows the visual progression we aim at. From the cartoon-ish and photorealistic style of the “Raybat” sweater to the subtleness of the first female-only sweater, “Etno”, that came to also name the whole line.

Keep it locked for a lot more stuff to come this year.

Peace, It’s Our Thing.
