Ed Templeton #6.
Salvage was the clothing company done by Zero Two. The idea behind Salvage was to recycle discarded clothes from various institutions. It took thrift store shopping to the next level by giving you the chance to buy shirts from prisons and mental hospitals, if the ads could be believed. I'm fine with buying shirts at thrift stores, but this was just kind of gross.
Zero Two was the vegan shoe company that ran photos of mutilated cows and people wearing Airwalks leaving bloody footprints. Their team had Ed Templeton, Mike Vallely, Brian Lotti and Sean Sheffey. Zero Two didn't last long. I believe they were the backer behind Mike and Ed's short lived Television company. This was before Ed started Toy Machine and Mike went back to Powell.
