A Little Bit About Us



Were still here… We originally dipped our toes into the street-wear market back in 1999 when we opened the first Origin store on Abbeygate street in Galway stocking brands like Stussy, Aem-kei, Zoo-York and the like.

We’ve adapted and evolved and navigated the ever changing and everyday new challenge presenting arena that is retail in Ireland. We are now launching online to stay in touch with our many loyal followers who have supported us for so many years and now live and and work abroad, and also to improve our service to those of you who have stayed. You all know who you are, shine on you crazy diamonds, we couldn’t survive without you.
