Clothing For You By Youth

GRAAFICS G Line - is an apparel company. GRAAFICS stands for: Gang Diversion, Reentry And Absent Fathers Intervention Centers. The company was created when the founder of The GRAAFICS Youth Program needed money to support the things that he wanted to do for the kids in his program when The City of New York denied every request for funding. Currently, G Line includes urban wear, e.g.: Sweatshirts, Hoodies, Vests, Varsity Jackets, Scarves, Fitted & Snap Back Caps and Scully Caps but will eventually incorporate casual wear, sports wear, a suit collection, eye wear, belts, and shoes.Today, all of the embroidery works on every item of clothing is completed with the input of children enrolled withing the program as an introduction to vocational trade. 

The company was founded in 2008 by Kai Smith. Originating from a batch of 12 snap back caps made at a small African shop in Harlem and and sold strictly to those first few people that supported GRAAFICS and were equally upset that a program like GRAAFICS could not get financial help from the city when so many other programs were given millions and did not have half the success of GRAAFICS. 

12 years later, 100% of all proceeds from the sale of all GRAAFICS clothing is used for programs that empower our kids. 

12 years later, GRAAFICS still has not received a single penny of City, State or Federal funding.
