About us — The Found Skip to content

We create products to inspire our customers to … be a rebel. Be who you are. Be empowered. Have fun! And most of all: Express yourself!

Our motto really guides our decisions and what we offer to the world. The Found is co-owned and operated by us—James York and Albert Tanquero—along with an amazing team of artists and talented people. From the start, we’ve been inspired by vintage ephemera and pop culture trends. Our customers appreciate our sense of humor and bold color choices. And they love the quality of our products at fair price point, especially since we produce most of our products in the US. Today, as always, we want to celebrate the people that are counter culture, that push the envelope, that fight inequality, that create art, that are funny and smart.

Albert Tanquero and James York are co-founders. Amanda Coleman ia operations and purchasing manager. And Laura Szumowski is our head illustrator.
