We sat down with local leather daddy himself Gunther Estrada to talk about what inspires him most and where GRBG made is headed...
Hi Gunther, so tell us what does GRBG Made mean?
GRBG made is a play on words that comes from Peru as a playful way to call your best friend's attention. My friends and I created an artist collective after spending lots of time with each other. We did shows together around Long Beach under the name Los Garbage but eventually, everyone moved away. Out of Nostalgia and missing my friends I decided to create GRBG Made as a way to keep the name and spirit alive.
What inspires you the most?
The intelligence that comes from nature, the 80's and the obvious thing like my friends and family.
What are you most excited for with your brand? What's next with GRBG made?
Expanding, not in money but in reaching new people in other places all over the world. I'm very passionate about traveling and with expansion, I'll be able to fuel that.
What would you say to someone just starting out on their business venture?
Try to understand it's not going to be easy. Jump in with the knowledge that it isn't going to be easy and it would probably be a lot more easier to work for someone else. When you become your worst judge it can be difficult at times but it is possible. Anything is possible!
Name a song or band that embodies your brand:
The Cramps and Los Saicos
Is there anything else you want to add?
We are not alone.
