ARTICLES ABOUT US:
Mediums Collective is for the chic stoner. For the connoisseur who has an eye for quality. This is streetwear that comes with a luxurious haze outlining it. Since its inception in 2015, Mediums Collective has continued to innovate comfortable clothing outfitted for the on-the-go stoner.
One of my favorite things about living in the Northwest is the ability to wear a sweatshirt year round. I find nothing more comfortable than a sweatshirt, especially when you put it on fresh out of a warm dryer. Seriously, though, nothing beats a big cozy well made hoodie and Mediums Collective knows this.
Their most recent drop is the kind of hoodie you wear to stunt on people. The Quilted Collection is made from heavyweight fabric and is available in three colors that contrast with a creamy base and satin-lined pockets. Through the sleeves, chest, and front pocket you can see a custom quilting pattern.
Hemp makes more than just a pretty pattern as Mediums incorporates hemp into their textiles; their Jasmine Collection of hats are 100% hemp. As well, more than half of the Seattle Tee fabric is made of hemp. Showing how they take timeless techniques and use them to create modern, innovative, and high-quality streetwear. - Read Full Article

Big Cs: "Be the chess player, not the chess piece."
Roger: "Also in the spring line, I call it the ‘Knowledge + Hustle = Self Made.’ It really has this feeling, you know, we can wait around for things to open up during this pandemic or we could really just do it ourselves. Self Made is about making things happen. That’s what our spring line represents, and I feel like that’s what we're experiencing as a brand right now." - Read Full Article
