Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Where does your brand name, Treehopper, come from?

The Treehopper, a tiny insect, is a fascinating creature known for its unique method of spreading the word among fellow treehoppers. As pioneers in incorporating "social objects" into clothing designs, we embody the modern-day Treehoppers.

Our mission is to bring sustainability into the mainstream, achieved by enabling you to engage in meaningful dialogues with your friends and family.

This innovation is a result of a deliberate design process, and the outcome is that our designs are purposeful, aesthetic, unobtrusive, and thought-provoking.

What are social objects?

Social objects are items or artifacts that spark conversations, interactions, and social engagement among people. These objects often have some unique or interesting characteristics that make them stand out and capture people's attention. When shared or displayed, social objects become focal points for discussions and interactions, facilitating connections and conversations between individuals or groups.

The concept of social objects was popularized by Jyri Engeström, a Finnish entrepreneur and social theorist. According to his theory, social objects act as the glue that binds people together in social networks and communities. These objects provide a focal point for discussions, interactions, and the formation of relationships.

What is Social Objects as Design Artifacts (SODA)?

Social objects are items that carry shared meanings and emotions, often acting as conversation starters or catalysts for social interactions. While frequently observed in domains like technology and art, their presence in fashion design is a novel phenomenon. The incorporation of these objects into clothing design adds a new layer of complexity to the process, enriching garments with stories, memories, and connections.

The inclusion of social objects represents a departure from traditional design considerations, as they introduce an intimate layer of individual and collective experiences into the clothing itself.

In today's interconnected world, clothing goes beyond its utilitarian function to serve as a canvas for personal expression and social communication. 

We are proud to introduce Social Objects as Design Artifacts, heralding a new era of environmental and social responsibility, both within and outside the clothing industry.

What materials are everyday essentials made of?

The majority of our products are made of 100% Certified Organic Cotton. However, for a few lightweight products, we realize that pure cotton does not hold its shape well.
