Biography

Flavored Threads founders Eric and Juan worked on tee design, sales, and screen printing as early as ’93, but the true taste of Flavored Threads came together when the two spent long hours in the cubicle rat race amusing each other with irreverent ideas for tees. These former techies fancied themselves as word-slingers and designers and promptly left the 9-5 to create unique tees that read the flavor of the times and respond with smart-alec wit and eye-catching design. Using entrepreneurial cojones and their wives’ health insurance coverage, the Flavored Crew built the brand independent of investors and loans, paying dues by working out of old tire garages with no heat and peddling tees out of students’ backpacks on football Saturdays. The team is now thriving, and prides itself on using local and state suppliers.
