The Hantu Collective
It all started as a community project in '03 using fashion as a way to help under privileged young men express themselves, discuss barriers, inspiration & aspirations with the aim to take positive steps in life with better mental health.
Bravely, during the recession, Angga & Geo collaborated and created a fashion label that kickstarted the streetwear movement in Sheffield. Soon after they realised that more and more people wanted to get involved.
Somehow it turned to a collective, design & consultancy agency and much more.
The members grew to 3 continents in various different fields.
Hantu's members have core values of collaboration, skills & network sharing.
We had great successes from working with big corporate brands to community groups.
We curated, designed, facilitated collaboration projects that ranges from small local community projects to International exchanges.
Since inception and growth, all our members have skyrocketed to success.
What we didn't do was plan on what we would do when we achieve our mission:
"Helping our members to excel in life with whatever practice they choose to do"
Now all our members are too successful, not a bad place as we fulfilled our original mission.
The by product means HANTU collective has to go dormant.
All great things must come to an end, thank you for being and supporting us with us in the journey through our various iterations.
Hantu means spirit in Indonesian, which means it's timeless.
Maybe one day when the right person are looking to revive the sleeping phoenix.
Until then this is goodbye.
It's been fun, exciting and enriching to all our lives.
