Find your instincts.

Jamai began screen-printing tees back in his high school art class and then hustled them at lunchtime for milk money. He followed his entrepreneurial itch and established Animal Instincts Apparel in 2008. AI is rooted in community so we source our garments from ethical producers and work with local screen printers and dye guys. Our hand-drawn designs are inspired by street art, illustration and the beauty of San Francisco.
All of our kids and baby line is made right here in San Francisco!
