Mike, Fabian, Dave and the Holstee Manifesto

Por Belén Torregrosa

¿Te gusta tu trabajo? A Mike, Fabian y Dave les encanta. En serio. Les gusta tanto, que decidieron publicar un manifiesto muy apasionado:

Cuando dejaron sus antiguos trabajos, estos tres chicos americanos tenían un plan: poner en el mercado una marca de ropa reciclada que además de vender productos, ofreciera sentido, significado: un “estilo de vida”, como se dice hoy en día.

En el verano de 2009, meses después del lanzamiento, la marca era un proyecto pequeño. Habían vendido unos cuantos cientos de carteras y camisetas que familiares y amigos habían decidido adquirir de buena fe. (Si eres emprendedor, la historia quizás te resulte familiar…) En aquel momento, los tres se sentían “llenos de una energía muy pura, un puñado de emociones y un montón de ideas”.

Para no olvidarse de aquello, Mike, Fabian y Dave se sentaron juntos en las escaleras de Union Square y trataron de recoger en palabras el puñado de emociones que les embargaba en ese momento:

“No se trataba de camisetas ni tampoco de nuestros antiguos trabajos. Se trataba de lo que queríamos hacer en nuestras vidas y de la empresa que queríamos crear: una compañía que compartiera esa pasión con el mundo, cada día. Aquel manifiesto era un recordatorio de como queríamos vivir”.


Entre sus productos estrella se encuentra esta cartera reciclada (disponible en su shop on-line por 40$)

Esta camiseta con bolsillo portátil incluído (40$)

Y gorros de alpaca como éste, para que las ideas no se enfríen en invierno.

Do you like your job? Mike, Fabian y Dave do. Oh, yes, they really love their job! In fact, they love it so much that they launched a manifesto that became very famous among the social net.

“In the heat of the recession in May 2009, brothers Mike and Dave and their partner, Fabian started Holstee. More than a company, or clothes, the trio wanted to create a lifestyle. Starting in the summer of 2009 they dove head first into the world of design and production”.

The story keeps on:

“Having just quit our jobs without a plan or idea of how we would spend our days, we were filled with a ton of raw energy, emotion, and ideas – a feeling that we never wanted to forget. So the first thing Holstee’s three founders – Mike, Fabian and Dave – did was sit together on the steps of Union Square and write down exactly what was on their minds and the tips of their tongues”.

And ended up with the story of the Manifesto:

“It wasn’t about shirts and it wasn’t about their old jobs. It was about what they wanted from life and how to create a company that breathes that passion into the world everyday. It was a reminder of what we live for”.

Among their best sellers you will find this wallet (available at their shop on-line for 40$ )

The story keeps on:

“In the months leading up to the summer of 2009, Holstee was just a small side project. We had sold a hundred or so shirts, mostly to family and close friends looking to support us. Having just quit our jobs without a plan or idea of how we would spend our days, we were filled with a ton of raw energy, emotion, and ideas – a feeling that we never wanted to forget. So the first thing Holstee’s three founders – Mike, Fabian and Dave – did was sit together on the steps of Union Square and write down exactly what was on their minds and the tips of their tongues”.
