The latest collaborative project from Vault by Vans sees Vans’ premium imprint partner with legendary artist Ralph Steadman and conservationist organization WildAid, on a collection designed to raise awareness about endangered species threatened by extinction.
A range of footwear, apparel, and skate decks, created with the most sustainable materials available, feature illustrations in Steadman’s signature, splatter heavy style that were previously contributed to filmmaker/writer Ceri Levy’s published books on the subject,Critical Critters, Extinct Boids, and Nextinction.
Organic Cotton Tee featuring the Western European Hedgehog: In the 1950s it was estimated that there were 30 million hedgehogs in the UK . . . but now there are likely less than a million. Habitat loss in both urban and rural areas is the main problem. The hedgehog has been on Earth for more than 15 million years, surviving everything this world has thrown at it. The 21st century, however, is proving to be its spikiest test yet.
