¡Hola! Me llamo Justo... Justo García.
I was born in the Dominican Republic, Quisqueya, a place from where I migrated to the United States at the young age of thirteen. I’ve been drawing/sketching since I was a child and I strongly believe that it played a great part in who I am today. As a teenager, I started designing and selling apparel that represent cultures. Mainly because like most immigrants, I wanted to represent where I am from. The frustration of not being able to find ONE t-shirt that truly represented my country, practically pushed me to create my own.
I saved money while I worked on design ideas and waited for the right summer to come. I bought a van, a cellphone, a stack of business cards and printed as many t-shirt
designs as I could before hitting the ground running. That summer, I spent every day selling t-shirts through the streets of Boston. A great adventure that eventually give birth to Roots United
(once known as DeezShirts).
My passion and drive comes from my deep love of cultures. I take great pride in designing high quality goods and I hope that my designs continue to touch people’s hearts, make them smile and raise cultural awareness.
