Our Mission: To inspire and be inspired by the Earth to create a more environmentally sustainable habitat for ourselves and the animals around us.
You’re looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly by being more intentional with the products you buy, and Vulture Gear does the same by being eco-friendly with the materials we use. You can trust you’ll look as rad as you are eco-friendly when you use our products. The fabric we use for our handmade gear is printed with a process that uses no water, toxic inks, and wastes almost no material. Another way we keep our waste to a minimum is by having our new t-shirts, totes, and hats made to order just a couple hours away from our studio. On top of all that, you can happily use our hand-bound sketchbooks knowing that our high quality paper is 100% recycled.
Our patterns are inspired in part by Vulture Culture, and the idea of immortalizing animal bones. Each pattern is made from illustrations or photographs of bones, skulls, insects, and/or plants; beautiful objects with natural symmetry, which are then accentuated in our pattern design (please note: no animals have been nor will ever be harmed or killed with the intent of using them for our artwork).
Just like you, we care about giving back to the animals and environment around us, which is why 10% of our profits are going to organizations that protect and rehabilitate wildlife such as Wild for Life, Carolina Raptor Center, and the WNC Nature Center. We want to do so much more, so this year one of our goals is to get our hands dirty and volunteer our time at these organizations to help out the local wildlife.
