Hi KCUB’D Community!
You may have already seen the amazing products included in our exciting FitsPo collection release, and what better way to celebrate FitsPo by also announcing that KCUB’D has taken home the, wait for it, APAC Insider Australian Made Awards 2022 for:
Best Emerging Cultural Textile Sock Brand
Here is an excerpt from the APAC Insider Australian Made Awards:
“APAC Insider’s annual awards were launched to highlight the amazing work done by those firms and individuals whose ceaseless dedication to innovation, customer care, and the continued growth and improvement of their businesses has seen them forge ahead of their competitors and raise the bar for performance and results in their industry.”
Launching a small business before the COVID-19 pandemic hit has given our journey some unexpected twists and turns so this is such an awesome acknowledgement of all the hard work and passion we pour into our artworks, our stories, and our products.
As some of you may know, we launched with original inspiration from Kaea, our emerging Urban dancer who shared her culture dancing with her socks. We do what we do because we are passionate about our Art, Stories and Culture, so to receive this unexpected award is such a pinnacle moment in our business journey. The KCUB’D family are incredibly grateful for your continued feedback and support of our products and purpose. We would not have come as far as we have and reached this milestone if not for this.
This recognition from APAC Insider empowers us to innovate our product offerings. We absolutely cannot wait to continue to tell the stories of Polynesia that connect our cultures, our islands, and our people through art. Watch out for more collaborations and releases and even more exciting artworks from emerging talents from Australia and New Zealand. Because here at KCUB’D, we make sure Art Walks, Culture Talks.
Until next time whānau.
