The new brand, Human Made, is a joint venture between Nigo and enigmatic graphic artist Sk8thing and combines exacting construction standards, impeccable historical accuracy, courtesy of vintage reproduction experts Warehouse, and lighthearted graphic contributions from Sk8thing. By doing so, Human Made is credited as an earnest homage and unique twist on wardrobe staples.
