There used to be a time where many Asians in America felt they had to hide parts of their culture just to “fit in.”
That’s why we’re happy to introduce Eastern People, a clothing collective inspired by all the rich cultures of people from the East, designed by and for all Asians.
With thousands of years of incredible history, art and accomplishments to be proud of, it’s past time that Asian cultures get the representation they deserve in the modern world. By mixing style and the cultures we grew up with, we celebrate who we are, where we come from, and show the world how powerful of a community we are.
All of Eastern People’s designs are printed and shipped from Southern California, home to one of America’s largest Asian communities. If you’re in dire need of custom screen printing services for your own business, it can easily be found online.
“Mày ham chơi quá!”
For kids who grew up in Vietnamese homes, chances are good that you’ve upset your parents enough for them to yell, “Mày ham chơi quá!” at you. It means, “You’re going out so much!” Got bad grades? Getting sick? It’s because you are going out so much!
Today, those kids are still about the “ham chơi” life, or the “hunger to play.” Now, you can now snag your own Ham Chơi t-shirt and tank top!
Sizes come in unisex and cut slimmer than Western fits.
“Don’t eat that! It’s yeet hay!”
If you grew up in a Chinese household, odds are this has been yelled at you while you’re eating something that probably tastes great but isn’t great for you.
“Yeet hay,” which translates to “hot air” in Cantonese, refers to foods that cause inflammation such as greasy, fried, and spicy foods, or the feeling you get after eating those kinds of food.
The Yeet Hay design also comes in hoodie form. The mid-weight fleece is 80% ringspun cotton and 20% polyester.
