Foreign Family was started in the hot summer of 2005, when two friends Chad and MR44, decided to start their own t-shirt brand. Their first conversation started out like this:
Chad - "Yo 44, I want to start up this clothing brand called Foreign Family"
MR44 - "Oh word? Why the name Foreign Family?"
Chad - "Well 'Foreign' because everyone living on this earth is really a foreigner to their land. I mean, just take a look at America, it's a beautiful mixing pot of all types of cultures and backgrounds, yet we label ourselves as American. And 'Family' because that is the strongest bond we all value in life. I want to see everyone in all parts of the world come up together as a family and make a living, doing what they love to do."
MR44 - "Word. I'm in"
And just like that, we started to design t-shirts. We are most known for our intricate hand drawn designs, a rarity in this computer generated world. We are on a mission to sell quality t-shirts and lifestyle products for everyone around the world to enjoy. Keep in touch with us, we promise to make it interesting. Foreign Family.
