The NUGGLIFE story has it’s humble beginnings rooted in New York City back in 2004. Two goons stumbled across the meaning of life over a blunt in the front steps of the Fashion Institute of Technology. Going together like weed and a Dutchmaster, they put forth the framework for what would eventually become the NUGGLIFE brand, featuring an ever-expanding cast of characters inspired by the degenerates they grew up with.

Influenced by their home of New York, these longtime buds created NUGGLIFE, a cannabis inspired lifestyle brand that focused on cut & sew clothing, custom vinyl collectables, and commission artwork.

Starting off with custom collectables, Ian Ziobrowski carved a name for himself in the toy community, garnishing a wide range of awards highlighting his skills. Zachary Hirsch crafted the design side, by coming up with a concept that focused on all things cannabis without ever having to show a single weed leaf. The goal was to create a streetwear brand that matched the quality, craft, and attention to detail of the toy line.

Another day, another hustle.



About Czee13:

Czee13 is a UK-based Street Artist, Illustrator, and Toy Designer, best known for his process-based artwork. As the creation spawns its detritus, so the castaways become the new object of his imagination. Czee’s personal mythology of paint splatter, rust, and grime, has led to his most notable creation, the Canbot.



About Clutter Studios:

Clutter, established in 2004, is a portal to the global subculture community of Designer Toys and Underground Art. From festivals to art openings to pop-up events, we have our finger on the pulse of this diverse and welcoming community.  

As a Gallery, Clutter works closely with international artists to curate original shows and releases. Whether it's a high-end resin made in our New York fabrication studio, or collectible vinyl produced using one of our overseas manufacturing partners in China or Japan, Clutter puts love, hard work, and dedication into every piece we create.

With multiple events throughout the year, we are dedicated to providing the toy community with in-person gatherings and toy releases, all culminating with Clutters’ Five Points Festival and the Designer Toy Awards.  

And yes, sometimes we publish a magazine.
