Lower started way back in 2001 in the humble town of Mount Maunganui, NZ. Their roots are in the hip hop culture, using this as a catalyst for their creative work. Founder Jake Pyne wanted to shake up NZ streetwear and wanted to stamp some authority. They have a strong print focus on their tee shirting which changes up every season. Base Streetwear is the exclusive stockist of Lower in Wanaka.
