Ko Jesse Lawrence Anderson toku ingoa!

That’s about as far as my Te Reo Māori will take me but none the less, kia ora! My name is Jesse and I was born (and still based) in Whangārei, Northland. I’m a 29 year old and my kaupapa is Oosh Clothing!

I started this clothing brand at the start of 2021 and have been running it with the help of my kōkara (mother). What was once a lawless outlet of creativity became a blessing for both of us as I seek to turn a hobby into a passion!
 
I started out with a tablet, a $10 dollar stylus pen and 2 weeks practice drawing each design freehand whilst trying my best to represent the meaning of the word most of us use in almost every sentence – Oosh!

The word Oosh is iconic to Aotearoa/New Zealand. It has found it’s way across Young and Old, said to describe the Highest Amount of Admiration, or to compliment with Great Honour.
