Owner & Designer Street Hippee Streetwear Co . streethippee . com
Hunter Johnson launched his company after combining his passion for unique threads with his love for the planet . Sustainability is key to the young designer . So is his commitment to helping to reduce the waste of textiles – millions of pounds of clothing are thrown away each year and either sent to landfills or burned . Instead of creating new , Hunter upcycles , reworks , and offers handmade , one-of-kind pieces that become wearable art . Once a designer working in his Southern Indiana home , Hunter recently opened a Street Hippee Streetwear Co . brick ’ n ‘ mortar shop at Mellwood Art Center , where customers can expect unique apparel and a super chill vibe .
