Friend of the People - An interview with Anwar Carrots
Carrots? Like the vegetable? Yeah! That was my first reaction years ago when I first saw our friend Nick Beeba rocking a purple top and bottom sweatsuit that said "Carrots". It was a collab with the designer Mark McNairy. Over the years, I started to see the Carrots brand more and more. The more I saw, the more I liked it, and the more I learned about the brand's founder Anwar the more interested I became in what he was up to.
Check it here if you haven't seen it yet. As is true with all Arvin Goods products everything is produced using our recycled cotton, and polyester material blends.
As we do with all of our collaborator's I sent some hard-hitting questions 😂 to dig in a little deeper. We hope you learn a little bit more about Mr. Anwar Carrots in our interview below.
Born In Trenton NJ. Raised in Orlando FL, USVI St. Thomas and LA. What led me to LA was my pops seeing a future for me in acting and modeling and shit stemming from me going union from being an extra in a Carnival Cruiseline Commercial in the VI lol. Thanks, Dad
Honestly, the turning leaf of P&C led to me doing Carrots™️. Launched with Toyota Scion Retail Gallery Pop-up space. 30 days, good collaborations based on the relationships I have with real people that do dope shit.
My wife, my kids, my homies, my mom, Nigo, and Martha Stewart, Drake, and Future lol
