Kia Ora PledgeMe whanau,

Ko Aru ahau. I’m Aru Hapimarika, a 32 year old roofer from Taranaki, married with 2 tamariki and the creator of ONE3THREE CLOTHING. Although I enjoy my career in roofing, it has never been my passion, ever since I was a teen I’ve always been drawn to the allure of creating my own clothing brand. I’d have numerous designs on my old laptop and even made a few original t-shirts back then.

ONE3THREE CLOTHING

After years of contemplation and a lot of discussions with my wife, in October 2023 I decided to run it straight and finally make my teenage dream a reality. After months of brainstorming, planning, creating samples, a few mishaps along the way and all the business/legal prep work that comes with it. In May of this year ONE3THREE CLOTHING was created Originally named Say No More Clothing but due to trademarking issues included approval only to be later revoked due to infringement issues that weren’t initially noticed in when accepted. Unfortunately It was back to the drawing board.

However that mishap was a blessing in disguise because I had an epiphany which lead me to the perfect name for my brand that was right in front of me the whole time. 133 is a number synonymous with myself, siblings and all of our children as it’s the number for the address we all grown up at. It’s all of our homesteads and it just sounded right. So as of May 2024 ONE3THREE CLOTHING was created, as well as creating this brand I also am the designer, DTF printer, social media presence and everything in between. But due to the cost of living and having a young whanau to take care of it is a struggle funding a new business on top of everyday struggles.

Why am I crowdfunding?

Through my PledgeMe campaign, I’m hoping to raise at the minimum $1000.00 to help purchase items through my suppliers to create and launch ONE3THREE CLOTHING’s first official drop in time for the new year. Just to show how hard I have been working and how committed I am to ONE3THREE CLOTHING, below is a checklist for everything I have done so far

• Registered as a sole trader

• Registered with HNRY for tax/GST/accounting purposes

• Registered ONE3THREE CLOTHING trademark

• Created a website & social media platforms

• Started a VLOG series on social media to drum up attention

• Designed all logos, clothing & accessories myself

• Obtained suppliers for clothing, vinyl, packaging & labelling

• Purchased a Heat Press machine

• Created sample clothing & accessories

I’ve been putting in the Mahi but I can’t do it all, I do hope my project resonates with you guys and you are willing to help ONE3THREE CLOTHING on this journey because “WE UP NEXT”

Mai i nga kakahu ko ONE3THREE, whakawhetai kia ko mo te whakarongo

From ONE3THREE CLOTHING, thanks for listening
