About: Howdy! This is the really official Paul Frank Page direct from PF Headquarters.
Description: Rewind to 1995 – while pursuing an art degree at a local community college, Paul Frank asked his mom for a sewing machine. Paul quickly taught himself how to sew by making vinyl wallets and other small accessories designed for his friends. These gifts were adorned with his whimsical character designs like that of Julius the Monkey and Skurvy skull and crossbones. Through word of mouth, the demand for his handmade products grew rapidly, and soon after Paul Frank Industries was born.
Born out of the need for a fun outlet celebrating creativity and individuality in Southern California, Paul Frank Industries was formally incorporated in December of 1997. Paul Frank’s artistic and entertaining designs were inspired by the art of the hand craft, mid-century modern design, music and pop culture. With its bright color palette and unique sensibilities, the company has attracted an almost cult-like following of all ages that love Paul Frank’s witty take on every day objects.
Today, Paul Frank sells its products to a diverse group of retailers ranging from small boutiques to major department stores. The company’s success in the US has allowed them to grow internationally with stores all over the world from China to Slovakia and even the Dominican Republic.
Paul Frank has held to their creative vision - a pleasant blend of sarcasm and whole-hearted sincerity. Each new product comes from the minds of individuals who simply want to make things different and better. Visit www.paulfrank.com for more fun!
