Brooklyn’s Kinfolk has evolved into one of NYC’s most beloved streetwear and lifestyle destinations, stocking brands from N.HOOLYWOOD to Carhartt WIP. The “Kinfolk life” concept was formed back in 2008 by friends from New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo, Japan. They were all connected by the desire to create products and experiences they’d imagine but couldn’t find to purchase.
Now, Kinfolk’s bricks-and-mortar operation at 94 Wythe is thriving, and as the Kinfolk family continues to grow, the core mission remains the same: to source the highest quality designers, builders, and techniques to develop lasting products and unique experiences.
