Our Story


Hey there! Welcome to Gahyao Clothing, we're happy you made it here. We'd like to take a moment to tell you our story.

We started Gahyao because we wanted to provide quality made Asian branded Skate tshirts - to pay homage to 90's street culture. The idea of starting a tshirt company spawned when I first started skateboarding in Hong Kong many years ago. I was so drawn into the graphics of skate decks, shirts, the caps and stickers, which inspired me to create my own artwork. I studied graphic design and multimedia arts in the Philippines, and started experimenting with different methods of tshirt printing.
There definitely was a lack of quality Filipino skate brands in the late 90's and early 2000's, that's when I realized there was space for a brand to come up that was run by skaters.
Through the years, I was able to rack up experience in Design and Content Creation, but it wasn't until 2018 that the timing felt right to launch the company. With the support of my wife and a lot of time sourcing quality materials and print methods, we finally landed on something we were proud to share with the world.
We aim to be the go to clothing brand for skaters in Asia.
