What if I would like to license a bigger story or campaign?

It is important for us to have our artists’ voices and stories told alongside your product! We have thousands of editorial-level photos and videos shot by our storytelling team. Please email us at info@rootsstudio.co for packages of collateral and pricing.

Why does Roots Studio not guarantee terminal exclusivity?


Our goal and hope is to create a sustainable livelihood for artists, not to dispossess artists heritage. With that said, we also understand the need for exclusivity in the given season and remove the design from usage during the time period. The motifs inherently belong to the community and it wouldn't make sense for any company to own a heritage item terminally.
