Rise - Group Economics
The Most Interesting precision-designed innovative headwear to inspire, uplift, and enlighten.
The Green Label Variation of the RISE crown adds emphasis to the concept of group and community economics. In order to build together, we must actually build together. The entire lifecycle of our spending must be intentional. Wealth, Wisdom, and Wit.
This version has a black Africa emblem to symbolize the rich land from which we came. This special edition crown combines headlines and historical moments in Black History into a sculptural homage to a relentless journey. Black history hasn't been pretty, but the journey tells a story of resilience and mental toughness beyond any imaginable condition. From the depths of the Dungeon the people will "Rise" up rings true by every measure in this instance. This controversial piece highlights some historical moments in black history without hiding beneath a veil of censorship. We thought long and hard before releasing such a concept piece as we realize that homage can dig up once forgotten and difficult memories. This piece was created simply to celebrate from whence we came with a sense of pride, in order to remind the world what a people so far from their original land are made of, and how those once oppressed will always RISE up.
