Denik gathers artists from across the globe and puts their work on journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, as Denik believes art can change the world. A portion from every notebook purchased goes to fund building schools in developing countries. Not only do the schools get funding, but a portion of the profit also helps to support the artist to continue using their talents to make this world a better place.denik+video+image+without+play+button

Reach, a veteran artist from Taiwan pushes Taiwanese graffiti to the international platform through the Pow Wow Taiwan event, and dedicates his life to graffiti. His art is clean and well- crafted along with clear colors. Reach’s art can range from simple to complicated art forms and he always amazes us. Denik and Reach collaborative notebook is helping Reach with his graffiti tour in Taiwan. The purpose of this “All City Tour” is for Reach to travel to every single city in Taiwan, and leave his graffiti art, legally, on noticeable buildings.11666308_937041969673067_4716147211530245421_n

Lula 101 made this collaboration possible by referring Reach to Denik. We, like Denik, truly believe that art can change the world. This collaborative notebook was made in the U.S. with recycled paper, and came in with a regular size and a pocket size, exclusively sold at Hopes (Lula directly owned retail). evyjl35Cjt6O8hjoJENJxuvK1niZJPEAEwlK-cEjN9Q

Lula and Denik are supporting him on this tour and all the profits earned on this notebook will fund Reach on his trip. We wish the best of luck to him and cannot wait to see his art through out Taiwan. Here are a few work done:

We invited one of the most famous graffiti artist in Taiwan – Rookie to help us bring this white, boring door into something that reminds us where we came from.

REBEL8 ASIA- Thailand

ตั้งแต่ ปี 2006 Lula Apparel เป็นผู้ทำให้ยี่ห้อ REBEL8 เติบโตขึ้นในเอเชียอย่างแพร่หลาย โดยเป็นตัวกลางในการกระจายสินค้าและจัดจำหน่ายสินค้าในโซนเอเชียอย่างประเทศ ไต้หวัน, เกาหลีใต้, สิงคโปร์, ไทย,
มาเลเชีย, ฮ่องกง, จีน และ อินโดนีเชีย เป็นต้น

REBEL8 และ Lula Apparel มีจุดเริ่มต้นทางธุรกิจที่เหมือนกันคือ เริ่มจากธุรกิจและเงินทุนขนาดเล็ก แต่มีจุดมุ่งหมายที่ยิ่งใหญ่
ซึ่งทั้งสองได้ร่วมทำให้ความฝันของพวกเราเป็นจริงขึ้นมาภายในเวลา 7 ปีมานี้

ใน ช่วงหลายปีที่ผ่านมา บางท่านอาจจะเคยได้เห็นแบรนด์สัญชาติอเมริกาฯ ที่พยายามจะเลียนแบบ REBEL8 ซึ่งเรา (Joshy D.)ไม่ได้เพิกเฉยต่อ บริษัทเหล่านี้ และได้แสดงถึงจุดยืนของเราว่า เรามีทัศนคติด้านลบ

อย่างมากต่อบริษัทเหล่านี้ อย่างเปิดเผย
ทำให้เราถูกฟ้องร้องในข้อหา พูดให้ร้ายหมิ่นประมาท ต่อบริษัทคู่กรณี
เหตุการณ์นี้ทำให้เราได้บทเรียนสองสิ่งที่สำคัญดังนี้
1. ก่อนที่คุณคิดจะพูดพาดพิงถึง บุคคล หรือ บริษัท ด้วยข้อความที่สามารถจะทำให้อีกฝ่ายเกิดความไม่พอใจ คุณจำเป็นจะต้องชี้แจงด้วยว่าสิ่งที่คุณพูดถึง เป็นเพียง”การแสดงความคิดเห็นของคุณ”
2. หากคุณทุ่มเทเวลาทั้งหมดให้กับการโฟกัสสิ่งที่เป็น “ด้านลบ” คุณจะไม่มีวันได้เจอกับ “ด้านบวก” ในชีวิตของคุณเลย

และ สิ่งที่รบกวนจิตใจของผมมากไปกว่าการที่จะต้องมาต่อสู้กับแบรนด์สัญชาติ อเมริกาจอมเลียนแบบ ก็คือสินค้า REBEL8 ปลอม ที่มีการขายอย่างแพร่หลายในทวีปเอเชีย โดยมีโรงงานผลิตในประเทศจีน ซึ่งสินค้า

ปลอมได้มีการระบาดอย่างมากในประเทศไทย, อินโดนีเชีย และ มาเลเซีย

ผม ทุ่มเทเวลามากมายเพื่อการเลือกสรรค์โรงงาน ที่สามารถผลิตสินค้าที่มีคุณภาพสูงที่สุดสำหรับยี่ห้อของผม และ ใส่ใจในความเป็นอยู่ของคนงานทางด้านต่างๆเช่น ความปลอดภัย
ผมพยายามตลอด ที่จะเลือกวัตถุดิบที่ไม่สร้างมลภาวะต่อธรรมชาติ และพยายามที่จะเลือกหาโรงงานที่ดีที่สุดในประเทศของเรา เพื่อผลิตสินค้าภายใต้แบรนด์ REBEL8
ผมภาคภูมิใจที่จะกล่าวว่า ตั้งแต่เราย้ายบริษัทไปยัง LA เราได้ย้ายฐานการผลิตส่วนใหญ่กลับมาเป็น USA แล้ว ซึ่งนี่เป็นสิ่งนึงที่ หลายๆบริษัทที่พยายามจะเลียนแบบเราไม่สามารถเลียนแบบได้

ขอขอบคุณ แฟนๆ REBEL8 ทุกคน ที่ให้การสนับสนุนแบรนด์ของเรามาโดยตลอด และขอบคุณ Lula Apparel สำหรับ 7 ปั ที่ร่วมธุรกิจกันมา

REBEL8 ASIA – Indonesia

REBEL8 finally starts “Spread The Eight” in Indonesia!!

Sejak 2006 Lula Apparel telah menjaga perkembangan REBEL8 di Asia. Mereka menjual kepada distributor di Taiwan, Korea Selatan, Singapore, Thailand Malaysia, HK, China dan Indonesia. REBEL8 dan Lula Apparel sama-sama memulai bisnis dari kecil hingga besar dengan uang yang terbatas sekali. Dalam waktu tujuh tahun kita telah bekerja bersama, bisnis REBEL8 dan Lula Apparel telah berkembang secara dramatis dan bisa dikatakan spektakuler.

REBEL8 Indonesia

Dalam beberapa tahun ke belakang, dapat kita lihat banyak perusahaan US yang terlihat seperti REBEL8. Dan tentu saja saya acuh terhadap perusahaan copycat ini. Malahan saya selalu secara terbuka menunjukan ketidaksukaan kepada perusahaan-perusahaan dan pecundang yang ada di belakangnya. Tapi setelah melewati berbagai tuduhan hukum yang merepotkan, saya belajar beberapa hal : satu : sebelum berkata apa-apa terhadap perusahaan atau pun seseorang yang ofensif ataupun kontroversial, mulailah dengan “Menurut saya…”; Kedua, saya belajar apabila kamu terlalu fokus pada hal hal negatif kamu tidak akan pernah mendapat posisi positif dalam kehidupanmu.

Hal yang lebih mengganggu bagi saya daripada para peniru dari US tersebut adalah banyaknya barang palsu (KW atau replica, you name it)REBEL8 yang dijual di daerah asia dengan merk authentic REBEL8. Pertamanya saya kaget sekali melihat barang-barang palsu ini yang diproduksi massal di China lalu dijual ke Thailand, Indonesia dan Malaysia. Setelah melihat banyak hal seperti ini rasa kaget saya bergejolak menjadi rasa stress berkelanjutan.

Ini bisa berarti seperti ini : Saya sudah menghabiskan banyak waktu saya untuk memilih pabrik yang paling berkualitas dan juga kesehatan pekerjanya, keamanan dan hak mereka. Saya selalu mencoba mencari material yang lebih baik yang lebih eco-friendly terhadap lingkungan. Saya secara konstan mencari pabrik yang bagus di domestik/lokal untuk membuat barang-barang REBEL8. Dan saya bangga untuk mengatakan, secara relokasi kantor kita ke LA, saya berhasil membawa banyak produksi REBEL8 kembali ke USA. Ini adalah hal-hal yang saya lakukan dan jelas tidak dilakukan oleh perusahaan atau orang yang memalsukan brand REBEL8.

Terima kasih untuk the real REBEL8ers untuk support selama in. Dan terimakasih untuk Lula apparel untuk tujuh tahun bisnis ini.

REBEL8 ASIA – S. Korea

Lula Apparel은 2006년부터 아시아 내에서 REBEL8이 성장할 수 있도록 도와주었습니다. Lula Apparel은 대만, 대한민국, 싱가포르, 태국, 말레이시아, 홍콩, 중국, 인도네시아의 유통을 맡고 있는 우리의 믿음직한 대표적인 유통업체입니다. REBEL8과 Lula Apparel은 자본이 적은 기업이었지만, 그 누구보다 원대한 목표를 가지고 사업을 시작했습니다. 우리가 함께 일한 7년 동안, REBEL8과 Lula Apparel은 눈부신 성과를 이루어냈습니다.

최근 들어, 미국 내 상당수의 회사들이 REBEL8을 모방하는 모습을 보았습니다. 저는 이러한 도용업자들을 그냥 지나치지 않았습니다. 사실, 저희는 이러한 도용업자들과 이들의 뒤에 숨은 패자들의 비방에 크게 신경 쓰지 않았습니다. 하지만 명예훼손죄로 고소당하고, 수많은 더러운 법정절차를 겪으면서 두 가지 중요한 것을 배웠습니다. 한 가지는 당신이 어떤 사람이나 회사에 대해 논란의 소지가 있거나 공격적으로 비춰질 수 있는 말을 하기 전에 항상 “제 의견으로는” 이란 말을 붙이고 시작해야 하는 것입니다. 그리고 또 하나는 당신의 모든 시간을 부정적인 일에만 몰두한다면 결코 당신의 인생에서 긍정적인 부분은 생기지 않을 것이라는 겁니다.

하지만 저를 더 성가시게 하는 것은 미국 내 나태한 기업의 모방브랜드보다 ,마치 진짜처럼 REBEL8 브랜드가 찍힌 REBEL8 가짜 상품이 아시아 내에서 팔리고 있다는 것입니다.

처음에 저는 중국에서 가품 REBEL8을 대량으로 생산하고 이를 대만, 인도네시아, 말레이시아에서 판매하고 있다는 것에 정말 충격을 금하지 못했습니다. 이러한 상황을 알고난 후, 너무나 큰 실망을 하고 말았습니다.

저는 상품의 질과 모든 직원들의 건강과 안전, 권리를 보장해주는 최적의 공장을 찾기 위해 많은 시간을 쏟았고, 신중에 신중을 기해 선택해오고 있습니다. 또한 항상 우리의 환경에 해가되지 않는 더 좋은 재료를 찾기 위해 노력하고 있고 지금도 REBEL8 상품을 만들 수 있는 가장 완벽한 국내 지방 공장을 끊임없이 찾고 있습니다. 그리고, 이제는 LA로 본사를 옮긴 이후로 REBEL8 생산을 미국에서 할 수 있도록 상당수의 생산과정들을 국내로 들여오고 있는 중이라고 자랑스럽게 말할 수 있습니다. 이것들은 제가 하고 있는 몇 가지 일이기도 하고, 불법으로 REBEL8을 만들어내는 회사들이 하지 못하는 몇 가지 일이기도 합니다.

REBEL8에 지속적인 관심을 보여주셔서 대단히 감사합니다. 그리고 저와 7년이라는 시간동안 함께 일해 준 Lula Apparel에게도 감사인사드립니다.
