My name is Sonia T., I have been an artist and designer for over a decade. Since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with history, military relics , military vehicles, design, vintage clothes, and old furniture. So much so, that I wanted to become an archeologist. But with time, my artistic side took over and I started customize military bags with famous WWII nose art. What started as art replica, quickly turned into making my original designs on prints, t-shirts, jackets and bags. Finally, I also wanted to move deeper into wearable historical art, by painting a full compositions on the back of jackets, fully hand paint every single accessories such as ribbon and sew patches. My goal, is to provide you with a one of a kind art piece, that will be a conversation starter about history or fashion. Feeling special and looking good, makes you feel good! Especially, when everything I make, from the art piece to the packaging, is handmade!
The 88 number is an homage to my Mom and my two brothers, who have 8 or 88 in their date of birth. Furthermore, I heard that the number 88 also symbolizes abundance of positive energy. It really comes full circle to what 88th Company means to me: it’s about family and positive energy.
Passion for history and military design
Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love and I had embraced it with all my heart! I owe to Philly my first Army surplus store, the famous and irreplaceable: Goldberg Army & Navy store. There, I found my dream, love and passion! It is also there, where I got my first bags and made my first designs that sold fast on Etsy! The Goldberg Army & Navy store is part of the birth of 88th Company and will always be part of our history! I’m forever grateful to the store and to Philly!
