The legacy of coffee is intertwined with design.
Welcome to Sprudge Vintage, a summer pop-up of curated coffee vintage from the third wave and beyond, drawing on today’s worldwide movement of vintage gallery resale. Coffee design deserves the same treatment, the same reverence—the coolest pieces from coffee’s rich design history, both wearable and collectible.
This is a celebration of coffee clothing design in the guise of our most sincerest hook-up plug. We’re bringing to you some of our favorite examples coffee graphic design in garment form, from indie third wave designers to throwbacks from the 80s and 90s. Our founders have personally shopped, scoured, thrifted, bartered, hunted, collected and searched for much of the last decade to curate the collection of pieces you’ll see over the coming weeks.
Sprudge Vintage ships weekly with restocks all summer long, showing you the stuff we love and shipping worldwide with regular updates announced via Instagram. Be sure to follow @Sprudge for new drops and discount codes. To kick things off—and as an early hint of the Sprudge 10 Year Anniversary fun we’ve got in store come fall—we’re offering our readers 10% off on all vintage orders using the code SPRUDGE10. Offer valid through Friday July 26th. Watch Instagram for more sales and disocunts throughout the summer.
There are some wild surprises in store for the shop over the weeks to come. Orders are processed first come, first serve, so please don’t sleep. (Perhaps drink some coffee?) Happy shopping and long live the beautiful world of original coffee design.
