The Paper Rain Project

You might ask what organic art clothing, skateboard art and recycled timbers have in common. I guess we’re the common thread. The Paper Rain Project came about from a want to do things differently, at a high-quality and without costing the Earth. We wanted to truly give back through the process of our making, to give on with our profits and to generally do good. 

Why wood? We love the feel and that it already has a story. T-shirts? Another great canvas for expression.  So came about our range of fair trade, organic Cause clothing, skateboard artworks and longboards made from recycled or locally sourced sustainable timber.

555 Days of FREEDOM

In the last 12 months we have created 555 days of Freedom (through fair trade employment).

We believe that fair trade & organic is just the way things should be. We are proud to work with a Kiwi owned business which exists specifically to provide freedom for women from the sex trade, women who were forced into prostitution by trafficking or poverty. Printing on these high-quality & ethical garments, we produce our apparel as limited edition artworks but also provide freedom through employment opportunity for women who would otherwise have no choice.

Thank you for your support! Browse t-shirts that support freedom here.
