Welcome to Doonyaya! A retro, backwoods, urban, edgy apparel company.
As a child, I watched my mother make art in her small upstate New York studio. Sitting by her side on those long afternoons, I drew images from the world around me: flowers, leaves, street signs, and even traffic cones…anything that piqued my interest. Those early years set the stage for Doonyaya.
Each design is individually screen printed onto super-soft fabrics in an old barn in Rhinebeck, NY, and is based on the wild and crazy escapades my son and I experience living in our farmhouse tucked deep in the woods. Have you ever seen a coyote hunting for prey, or beavers building a dam? We have! This inspiration and love for adventure goes into creating these limited-run works of art. When we’re not out scouting nature for ideas, we are rocking out to crazy riffs and jamming on our vintage keyboard and mini Fender. That’s probably why you’ll see a classic music influence in the line.
While our two great loves are sweet tunes and wildlife, we care about all of humanity. Doonyaya only uses eco-friendly inks and fair-trade garments made in the USA, and that's why 10% of our proceeds go to charities that focus on both humanitarian and animal rights.
Currently, the line is for kids only, but don’t despair! Soon, grown-ups will be able to rock these whimsical, snazzy threads, too. Stay tuned for more unique offerings from Doonyaya!
