It was junior year of high school when me and my best friend met in gym class located in Chicago. As we both got to know each other and hangout, we realized how much we had in common. One of the things we had in common was the passion of being your own boss. Later on, we decided to start our own clothing line. We struggled to come up with a name which meant something to us. As we started to print t-shirts outside of our basement, a lot of people started to really like our authentic designs. One person in particular, recommended a name. He said "Phi". At first, we didn't know what that meant. After doing research on the word, It came to us. The word "Phi", was something that had a lot of meaning to us. The meaning of Phi comes back to nature. That even though everything around us may look different to us in eyesight, but we are all made up of the same elements. In humans, we are all the same people but different in our own ways. We are different through our tempermants, passions and beliefs. We are "Same But Uniquely Different". A couple months of having the clothing line, we came up with an idea. because Phi has to do with nature, We decided to make a Pineapple Lifestyle Clothing Brand. A pineapple has a lot of significance to us. We think of it as warmth, welcoming, friendship, and hospitality. Because we live in a world with lots of different cultures, The Phi Concept wants to welcome everybody into our brand like it's our family. We believe that people should live to the fullest with everything and being able to have memories which make you happy. We strive every human to try new things, travel & adventure, have everlasting friendships, and follow your dreams.
PHINEAPPLE is a Pineapple Human. We combined Phi and Pineapple together, and you get PHINEAPPLE. This is a collection where we share stories and life's experiences through pineapple humans in a cartoon visual. A PHINEAPPLE is typically known for is living a fun and adventurous life. They like to lead with example and inspire others to live the same lifestyle as them. They are especially known to be the life of parties.
Where do PHINEAPPLES live? They live on PHINEAPPLE Island. It's located approximately 100 miles away from Hawaii. All of the PHINEAPPLES live on the island. The island itself is one of the most fun places to be. Because they live such an awesome lifestyle, they are heavily trying to promote it throughout the world so other people can live awesome adventures and have cool memories anywhere!
