"HE MUST BECOME GREATER AND GREATER; we must become less and less."
HE>i (HEgreaterthani) is a lifestyle company. We create apparel and other gear inspired foremost by our faith in God and His word. We are also inspired by art, our friendships, and surf & skate cultures.
The idea came in 2003 on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. While trying to think of something clever to put on the main screen of a Nokia phone, the '>' symbol seemed to stick out. John 3:30 (from the Bible) came to mind. It's one of our all-time favorite verses. It says, 'He must become greater and greater; I must become less and less.' The phrase 'HE>i' stuck on the phone for a few days and rapidly caught on amongst our group of friends. It was then that we decided to print up some shirts and stickers with the logo on it.
Today, we are a full-time company sending out orders across the U.S. & sometimes even globally. Our home base is on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. We are very selective with where we sell our products. So, our gear can only be purchased on our website, in our shops on the North Shore and Honolulu, events we attend, and a handful of select retail shops. In the future we hope to open more HE>i stores!
