“I was outside of the dorm room at Clinton College doodling, then Elijah looks over and asked “whats that” I explained to him that this is what they call me back home, it’s my nickname Bornreal. His was response was the reason why this brand has come into fruition. “Bro, you put that on a white t-shirt I’ll buy it right now!”
After graduating and returning to my hometown. I decided that I would take Elijah up on his offer. From there, people from Elijah’s hometown grew interested in what does BR mean? As I reflected on that question – I realized that bornreal is about being who I was my entire life, an honest and respectful individual that wants the world to be the same.
After coming up with the mission statement and meaningful designs. We knew if we wanted to have an impact on society; that we would first have to start with our community. With that in mind, Summer of 2017 Bornreal LLC hosted their first community event “Throwback Cookout” where family and friends come together to have a field day in the park. A day filled with fun, music, food and games to be played with members of our community (young and old).
