DemerBox has had a crush on Howler Brothers for a while. When the opportunity arose for us to collaborate with them we didn’t hesitate to say yes. Heed the call!
The DemerBox and Howler Brothers design teams decided that a custom patterned DemerBox and hat would be the most fun so we got to work and collectively landed on the Howler Brothers/DemerBox Disco pattern as a jumping off point.
This very limited, numbered run of sixty boxes required many extra steps to create. Water transfer printing, or sometimes called hydro dipping, is the process of laying a custom pattern printed on a transferrable film in a bath of water, then pushing the thing you want dipped into the film. It requires a tremendous amount of skill to do it right. Before the transfer happens though the boxes first needed to be completely disassembled, sandblasted, and painted with primer.
After assembly, each box was tested for water resistance using our custom vacuum testing machines. They suck the air out of each box and monitor for leaks. Then each box had all of its electronics tested, from audio quality to Bluetooth signal strength.
