Error404 celebrates authenticity and free-spirited creativity. The store is a platform for expression. We love listening, reading, visualising, and dressing. Through these avenues, we value our artists’ vision and want to share them with a broader audience through a physical and online space.
The artists engaged in Error404store work with a variety of sustainable, locally sourced and ethically produced products. We strive to work with like-minded creatives in developing visions for a greener, more community-based future.We care about the community and the well-being of the designers/artists we represent.
Error404 has been an evolution, and we have created a
platform with reach and power. But now, more action and conscious thought are crucial. Through the new appointment of roles to Rahma and Anjelica, we are all committed to progressing from what Error was, to level up and do more.
Error404store respectfully acknowledges the Traditional
Custodians of the land, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation and pays respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
