Chris Pastras has a long and illustrious career in skateboarding that dates back to the start of the early ‘90s World Industries era. He’s digging into that archival knowledge with Folklore, a new board brand that puts a modern spin on some iconic graphics from the past. The inaugural offering is an updated version of Jason Lee’s debut pro model from Blind that references his love of black and white film photography. Have a look at the announcement below.

Now that the cats out of the bag, or 🎩 (sorry @markpenxa, stole your joke!), here is the full view of the @jasonlee ”Cat In The Hat/J.Lee Revisited”, and a bigger glimpse into our new project, #Folklore ✨👑✨. Be on the lookout for lots of fun limited drops, reissues, and updates to some of the most iconic graphics of all time. I’ll share my graphic early next week, and we’ll release more info very soon. Really appreciate all the positive feedback so far! 🙏🏽 • Folklore boards are @quincywoodwrights produced USA 🇺🇸 wood, handcrafted by skateboarders in Houghton, Michigan 🖤 • Shops/Distributors prebook these bad boys before 🎄 with Rich @rkharris121: firstname.lastname@example.org. / Online release mid-January. • Art/design by @markpenxa 🙌🏽. Have a great weekend! #TheFolkloreProject ❤️
