THE STORY

Every good collaboration begins with a funny story. Ours began with Maddy (co-founder of The Crated) standing up a very pregnant Meredith (co-founder of Print All Over Me) for coffee.

Fast forward two years, many late night conversations, supply chain mishaps and  apologies on Maddy's part, Photochromia was born.

ABOUT PHOTOCHROMIA

Photochromia is a collaboration between two companies at the intersection of apparel and technology. A collection of sunlight sensitive garments, Photochromia visualizes STEAM concepts such as Schrodinger's Cat and Parametric equations. Through our collaboration, we aim to contribute to a future where clothing is truly responsive to our environment.

MARKET DEMAND

After our Kickstarter campaign for Photochromia raised $12,000 and was featured in major online publications, we realized how large the demand is for smart products with a nerdy twist. With that in mind, we are now beginning wholesale sales to museum stores for select pieces from the Photochromia Campaign.
