INSIDE ART GECKO STATE
Art Gecko State stays away from the crumbling walls
of "traditional" clothing labels and size charts.
Our clothing is epicene.
It is not named for it's specific wearer.
The wearer chooses the specific garment to fit and express
their own wall-less individuality.
These wearers can be the ones who don't take things too seriously.
They can be fun, sexy, shy, and smart, in complete harmony.
They're the ones who love and are loved.

You can feel the emotional connections when you experience our incomparable collections and visit our engaging physical store.
At Art Gecko State our production is taken on a serious moral level. There is no child labor, or any means or mass production that could cause any harm to any individual.
Shop with Standards
Following our strong eco-friendly standards, we travel only once a year to visit our dear friends, artists, and tailors in beautiful Bali, Indonesia and intense India.
During those annual buying trips we design and produce our inventory for the entire year. This reduction on travel and shipments has decreased our carbon footprint on a dozen levels.
All garments are created with zero-waste guidelines, scrap fabric is saved for accessories and future productions. All papers and plastics are saved to be recycled for the packaging of our items.
Bamboo being the fastest growing plant on our sensitive planet,
is used for Art Gecko State's housewares, home décor, and merchandise displays.
