R U N A K O, created by Elijah Boyd, a Chicago-based brand, drops their website today and are exploding through the Chicago fashion scene with their three new pieces that are hand-cut sewn & tailored to perfection, in very limited quantities.
Eljiah's plan to take the city over is prominent, and with the help of his twin brother's creative direction (Eric Boyd), they are on the brink of being unstoppable, not to mention their reputable sense of style amongst peers. To kick the clothing line off, R U N A K O dropped three new pieces that are available in very limited quantities via the online shop. Each and any product made available from the brand will be hand-made, and crafted in Chicago. One of the three pieces presented by the brand, the White Angled-Cut L/S Shirt, was sown from a custom pattern and hand crafted by Elijah himself. Go check out the rest of R U N A K O's new products by visiting runako.co and make sure you grab one before they're gone.

Innovative, Profound, and Organic.
What do you plan to do with R U N A K O within the next few months, and how do you plan to expand outside of just clothing?
I plan on continuing to express my art form through my clothing brand. I plan on expanding my brand R U N A K O, creating apparel for women and maybe even attire for all ages to wear. There will be a few local pop up shops, and events in the near future!
