X897 is the brainchild of the creative duo Julia Muszynski and Maurice Taylor. Julia has a background in big-tech and fashion marketing, whereas industrial designer Maurice Taylor is a former Design Lead at one of the biggest lifestyle and sportswear brands in the world. Having both witnessed mass consumption up close, the couple shared a goal to move away from fashion. The result was influenced by Maurice Taylor's time in streetwear, tapping into Japanese design aesthetics: Minimalistic, functional, and beautiful at the same time. And so, they founded X897 in 2021 (the X897 - part is actually taken from their postcode), with a vision to encourage more conscious consumption. How? By focusing on timeless design collectibles made to last.
