Cleaver and Blade is the world’s mischievous & exclusive StreetWear brand for restaurant misfits.
Remember your first shift in the restaurant? Did you start as a busser, dishwasher, host? Does the term “deer in front of headlights” mean anything to you?
But, once you are in the restaurant industry you realize that you are not sticking around because of the short hours, money, glory, or the plush of the position; au contraire, you are doing it because you love the edginess of it, riding that lunch/dinner rush wave, the family/culture, the controlled absolute chaos, and that is what Cleaver and Blade is all about…
"In America, the professional kitchen is the last refuge of the misfit. It's a place for people with bad pasts to find a new family." -Anthony Bourdain Jun 25, 2019
You are Cleaver and Blade… you are part of a worldwide band of misfits, you are part of a counterculture; artists, entrepreneurs, leaders and visionaries.
Cleaver and Blade was created in 2017 as a means of expression of labour of love to the industry: a task done for pleasure not reward.
Cleaver and Blade is based out of New Orleans, all products are printed in New Orleans, LA.
