With a goal to help create jobs for the victims of the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami, Apolis teamed up with their Japanese retailer partner, Freak's Store, to create a men's and women's collection combining traditional techniques unique to Japan and the US. The collection was grown, sewn, and dyed by a group of 40+ people who were affected by the Tsunami.

The end result is a timeless selection of goods that feature a number of indigo styles that are perfect for the summer. One of our favorites is the Band Collar Popover (above - $160) with its hand dyed indigo stripes. The collection is available in store at Apolis' retail store in Downtown LA, Freak's Stores throughout Japan, and online through Spring
