AREA 8 was born from the passion of the urban culture namely streetwear. The name AREA is an analogy to AREA 51 that awaits curiosity, mystery, interest and enthusiasm. The number 8 is a mix of two S that match with the first letters of the designer’s name.
We are inspired by subcultures and counter-cultures, japanese culture but more than that we are inspired by all that surround us.
We try to be kind to the planet. Our products are all designed and made in the North of Portugal. We use upcycled and recycled materials to reduce and reuse waste and this means that 80% of our fabrics are deadstock or production leftovers.
