SomnamBulle / Sababa Collaboration
This Collaboration is very meaningful to me because it is a great example of what the word "sababa" has come to represent in my mind.I used to have a hard time answering the question "what does sababa mean?" i felt i never truly knew the true definition because it was a word from a language other than what i grew up with.Sababa over time became a word to me that represents a vibe of appreciation for earth and the beauty in life and because i learned this word from a friend from a totally different background and country that it also means to me that connection with people around the world that you feel a mutual understanding and respect. I first met Laure Bertiere (Somanbulle) In Germany for the European snow tradeshow when we were visiting for the GBP Europe trip. When we all met it was that instant sync up and connection between style music and art. After meeting and talking about our interests with art and creating we soon began to talk about a collaboration project. about a year later Laure came to California and visited us in tahoe and she brought out a box of her handmade sweatpants and pocket crewneck sweatshirts for me to add my artwork to. I was so grateful for this collaboration because as soon as i saw Laure's work i felt it embodied the vibe that we shared and i was excited to be able affiliate the sababa word and my artwork with such quality craftsmanship.
