About - Jungle Tribe

JUNGLE TRIBE

Jungle Tribe began with twin brothers Dust and Beau at the ripe young age of 5 years old crafting leather and beaded bracelets to sell.
Born to wander, Dust and Beau have had a good go at businesses that allow you to roam the earth : a shave ice food cart, a handcrafted jewelry business, and selling leather goods at festivals.
At one point we followed the Warped tour selling punk rock bracelets traveling between cities with back to back dates, which meant the occasional bird bath shower in a 7-11 bathroom.
We spent 12 glorious years making leather accessories in dark hot basements listening to drum and bass, and basically living out of storage units 'living on prayer', constantly making things so that we had enough stock to fuel the growing Jungle Tribe booth.
Shambhala music festival in Canada eventually became the main event, a place where are all our wildest ideas and creations could be unleashed onto our kind of people. The wilder our style became, the better it was received.
By that point we were seasoned festival goers and we knew exactly what we needed to have strapped on us so that we could have hands free to manage the booth. After several years of making hip belts and pocket contraptions, our now Iconic Blaster Bag was born.
We always had a passion for functionality in our products. In the down season of the festival life and living out of a workspace and working on the floor, I came up with the original pattern for the Blasting Bag. Years in the making, it was quite easy to blast off all of the ideas that had been building in my head.
We were really excited to start selling online in 2008 and started making moves to stop doing festivals. We have been with Etsy since day one, growing together, and now we are opening up wholesale avenues and have a select few shops across the U.S that are authorized resellers : Delicious Boutique, Five and Diamond, Skingraft, Foreign Form, Ceiba SF and Harley Davidson Oakland.
Our roots are purely in the subversive countercultures from festivals to urban exploration, and we are happy to be chosen by costumers handling all your best super hero / comic book and dystopian movies and videos.
We continue to create unique pieces for all of us who don't really fit into one category, but instead look to the future for fashion.
