Essence is a visual arts curator at The California African American Museum and Jihaari is a music producer, DJ, and visual artist. Both are from Oakland, both are obsessed with Star Trek: Next Generation and both are in love with their toddler, Baby O.
For EVERYBODY.WORLD, they first designed a genderless and durable sneaker meets work shoe meets slipper. They've also created a Big Tote featuring artwork by Meg Fransee, but the newest piece missing from their wardrobe is a Long Sleeve Crop.
Like all EVERYBODY.WORLD contributors, Essence & Jihaari receives 10% of the sales of their designs. For their tote bag, 30% from each sale goes to Essence & Jihaari and 30% goes to Meg.
