Isn't it wonderful to look back at your life and see how the choices you thought were tiny at the time ended up having a massive impact on your life?
Maybe it's how you met your significant other or your closest friends - maybe it's how you got that job / opportunity that changed the entire trajectory of your career. In my own life, there are so many moments that, at the time, seemed so incredibly trivial, yet are now the biggest defining characteristics of it:
Meeting Kara (my wife) at my friends apartment in Santa Monica after I nearly gave up because I couldn't find street parking.
Walking into the JoAnn's and Michaels to buy elastic and paint markers to create my very first elastic wristband back in 2010.
Meeting Nick (our amazing CPO and honorary 4th brother) at lunch in downtown LA who just happened to see I was 'making hoodies for tall guys' as we sat with our first pattern maker.
I think that's what is so special about free will. We all get to make our own decisions - we all get to be the authors of our own stories, deciding what the next chapter really has in store.
When we started working on this design, we kept going back to this idea of using mythical-looking spirit animals - beautiful creatures that symbolize the different strengths and characteristics we hope to have ourselves.
As you all may have guessed from the Halcyon F&F release previously, I've been on a bit of a mythology kick lately so in addition to all the stunning animals, we also added one of the nine muses in greek mythology known as Terpsichore, the goddess of dance and chorus. I wanted to make sure music was properly symbolized in here and this just felt so right with everything else, especially given the impact that music has on each of us.
The result of that is one of the prettiest patterns I have ever seen us make, and it's one I'm so excited to finally be releasing. One of the coolest features of this set is that each bag and strap is different - they're all cut from a portion of the pattern we created so the spirit animals you find will be completely random and unique to you.
Our ZOXLOX Keychain converters are inspired by ingenuity from Zoxers in our own community. In our VIP group, members started posting pictures of clamps that turned their ZOX into keychains. Unfortunately, the clamps were 1-time use and would ruin their ZOX. So, we stepped in to create something amazing.
ZOXLOX are easy to use converters that will turn your ZOX Singles or Straps into the best keychains in the world. All you do is remove the screw, insert your ZOX wristband, and push the screw back in so the wristband is looped over it. Then, screw it back into place and just like that, your ZOX wristband is now a ZOX Keychain. And the best thing about it? You can easily swap your ZOX wristbands in and out to change your keychain any time you feel like it.
Every wristband made is a limited edition work of art for your wrists. ZOX are reversible with a design on one side and a positive message on the inside. Every ZOX is individually laser cut with a serial number to ensure authenticity.
