From apparel made using recycled plastic bottles to guitar string bracelets, everything we sell is a derivative of something, but Derivative® is more than just a brand. We are a group of creatives supporting a growing group of creatives. We are artists. We are musicians. We are producers. We are designers. We are creators. From music to photography, each sale supports our growing community of artists and the crafts they create. We aren't bound by trends or season. We are the "Fuck You!" to fashion. We are whatever we want to be, we sell whatever we want to sell, and we have a damn good time in the process.
All of our products begin as an item, or variable for the geeks. The variable incurs a change (∆) and become a new derivative item. This process is called, differentiation, much like how we encourage you to differentiate yourself.
Why the ∆?
The Delta (∆) is a symbol of change. From bracelets made using recycled bullet shells and guitar strings to photographs turned into the derivative art featured on our apparel, each derivative item was created or inspired by an item or concept that has gone through a change.
