basic_brat started as a passion project and a desire to wear clothing that incorporated bold patterns on simple silhouettes. With just one screen, a bottle of ink, and a few yards of fabric, basic_brat hit the ground running as an independent and hand crafted fashion brand in May 2016. Since then, it's continued to grow and evolve with ready to wear garments, swimwear, sample pieces, and home decor.
Making and breaking rules at every step of the way, basic_brat still hand prints most of the textiles, and sews a few of the sample pieces and accessories. Focusing on locally sourced production, the brand has started to release limited run inventory for it's products and garments. Expanding into small color palettes, and taking design cues from architecture and sculpture, the brand is continuously evolving.
Currently based out of Hamtramck, MI, USA.
