Junker (est. 2001)

Junker (est. 2001) started with stuff I dived outta dumpsters, everything is made with grubby little paws.I have mutated, overdyed, rusted, painted, buried or bled on every piece. The clothes are all one of a kind, made from denim, leather, whatever I can find. -Tod Junker

Raised in Houston, Texas on a steady diet of Ultraman, horror movies, war films, and Star Wars, Tod spent a lot of time getting in trouble in school for wearing biker boots and painting on his clothes. As a teenager he started sewing more and put legs of jeans on jackets for arms, drew, hand painted , silk screened, and dyed all his own clothes. He continued to mutilate clothes when he moved to LA in 2000 and started to experiment with aging processes, and pattern-making. Tod made a vest at a friend's house. Lenny Kravitz saw it, bought it, and that's how it all started! Since then Tod has outfitted Rocksatrs like Vince Neil, Slash, Trent Reznor, Marilyn Manson, and many others!

Junker Designs is currently based out of the Temple/Belton, TX area and still Mutilating the fashion industry! We are proud to carry Junker's awesome collection of hats, t-shirts, & accessories.
