Department of Nothing

What is the Department of Nothing? A simple idea, a no bullshit collaboration, an ethically produced range of quality products based in the belly of Sydney’s Inner West.

A suprise party, a smudge of hope on the horizon, a gust of fresh air, a soundsystem thats too big, a leaf blower full of glitter at fashion week. A team of friends making something honest. A cottage industry existing before the cottage gets torn down to make apartments. The smell of a burning piano as the house is filled with beautiful music.

What/ who are we? We are a small collective of people funnelling energy in the right way. We’re selling ethically produced shirts, caps and sweatshirts, designed and printed locally. Not made by children.

We’re making and selling small runs (25-50) of our designs and a whole bunch of one off unique stuff. Our 40 things in 40 days project is us printing a single t shirt with a silkscreen that we’ve hoarded for years and never used it its full potential, then erasing the screen and being done with it.

We strive to be ourselves. Largely steered by Chris Lego and his ruthless design aesthic we’re aiming to make every day a bit weirder than the one before it. We handprint our shit and still believe in original mischief. Come say high to us in St Peters, Sydney sometime.
