As a spunky Chinese American girl growing up, I didn't see enough creators who looked like me represented in apparel or design when shopping through the aisles and browsing online. The "Model Minority Myth" has boxed the Asian American community into a few paths: doctor, lawyer, engineer - while these professions are great, we are so much more and we believe diverse representASIAN matters.
So we at AA BATTERIES collaborate with Asian American artists to ensure our community's voices are properly represented & financially compensated.

Wearing AA BATTERIES means more than putting on a piece of fabric - you're supporting and energizing the future of how you think the Asian American community should be accepted.
So thank you from the bottom of my heart and
chili-oil filled stomach!
