About

The "Save Earth" Sock
The "Save Earth" Sock

Paperboy is a new fashion accessories label. We aim to be a tool of expression for the rebellious. We believe in fashion to empower a movement. We will continue working on accessory collections, by responding to contemporary issues. Our goal is to enable more discussion.

The "Kill Guns" Sock

We see the shootings, the amounts of fake news, the passiveness towards global warming and the fights for gender equality. As a fashion label we can empower the people with tools to express their opinion on these issues.

That is our mission.

The "Free Gender" Sock

 Our first collection tackles the sock; a garment everybody puts on every day. Two words manifest our opinion: 

  • SPEAK TRUTH
  • KILL GUNS
  • FREE GENDER
  • SAVE EARTH
  • You can choose if you want to show the message or hide it. But be sure to spread the message.

 The Socks are made from organic cotton and are produced in Spain. This to ensure honest production, obtain the highest quality and closely follow the production process.

We believe our message resonates across the globe. But we need your help to make it sound. 

The factory is ready for production and we are currently in the design stages for the packaging. Furthermore, we are developing a global online retail strategy.

With your support, we will be able to produce the first batch and design premium packaging.

Risks and challenges

So, what are the risks and challenges to this project?

Building a label is a highly involved process. Inspiring and empowering people while creating social movement with this same label might have some nasty angles as well.

However, we're proud to say that we are ready to take on any challenge on our rebellious paths. Ready to share with you our different perspectives on the power of branding. With a creative genius like Patricio Nusselder aka ‘Patti’ in charge of the design, every collection will be unique, fresh and above all, impactful. Nonetheless, Adriano Nusselder, with an entrepreneurial background takes care of business. As our father told us many times, ‘1+1=3’. To get back to the topic risks, we might get involved in a brotherly fight once in a while. But we tend to get out of those rapidly and stronger than before.

This is going to be our first Kickstarter project together, but we did cycle from Amsterdam(the Netherlands) to Spain once (1500km/930miles). No fancy hotels or camping’s, just surviving in the raw nature. Challenges and risks excite us. And with your support, we will make this happen too.

At this moment in time, we have our final prototypes of the Collection#1 ‘Silent Protest’ socks ready to produce in a well-known Spanish garments factory.

Furthermore, Patricio and the design team are making good progress to even make the packaging a blast. Fresh Fresh Fresh

The plan is watertight for now, from design to production to the logistics. So, no reason to make you wait longer than expected to spread the message. However, we will gladly deliver by bicycle if everything else fails ;)

Moreover, we prepared some steps to reduce the likelihood of mistakes and delays:

1. Sampling and business negotiations are done. We have tested all the socks in the right sizes and colors. The production quote is in hand and ready to be initiated.
2. We are working with an experienced manufacturer we got to know through family referral which has tons of expertise in the Spanish local textile industry. We are familiar with their production requirements, timelines, payment schedules, communication methods and European freight arrangements and costs for when it comes time for shipping.
3. We are working with a Dutch multinational shipment service for project fulfillment. With their expertise in this field of work, we are confident that they can handle any amount of work we send their way. They have proven to be communicative, punctual and respectful.

Besides that, we are fully transparent and honest in what we do. Feel free to connect with us with any feedback, suggestions or thoughts at info@paperboycollection.com. Because, together we stand strong. And together we can shape change the way we want it to be. We will provide regular updates and supply photos of the progress. So make sure you subscribe to our mailinglist @ http://paperboycollection.com and/or follow us on social! Insta: @paperboycollection

Join the movement! It starts with socks, and who knows what it ends with!
