Brooklyn Industries is a New York-based lifestyle brand founded by Lexy Funk and her partner in 1998. The first Brooklyn Industries products were messenger bags made out of recycled vinyl billboards, soon followed by graphic tees. Today the brand has expanded to encompass men's, women's and children's clothing and accessories. The company is also known for their eco-friendly manufacturing and retail commitments, producing and selling their clothes in facilities that utilize wind power.
"LIVE, WORK, CREATE came out of our early experience of being artists and trying to make a living. Brooklyn Industries was born from a need to be artistic and be commercial."
