If you think IKEA is the only company making its furniture in jail, then think again. Prison Blues clothing — ‘made on the inside to be worn on the outside’ — is manufactured right inside Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton, Oregon, by volunteering inmates, who are paid industry wages.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
