Story Of EyePath Company
We are in business of expression. Freedom of expression is a fundamental of human rights and foundation for many rights. It reinforces all other human rights, allowing society to develop and improve for betterment. The ability to express our opinion and speak freely is essential to bring change in society. Free speech has always been important throughout history to fight for change. When we express about rights today, they wouldn’t have been achieved without free speech. In the past – women were not allowed to vote, and worked in terrible conditions of mining – free speech had changed these. Free speech is not only about the ability to speak but the ability to listen to others and allow other views to be heard. We need to listen to people’s views as well as the right to offer your opinion.
We are going through a time where many don’t want to be on the same page with disagreement. We should feel comfortable with disagreement. Speaking of freedom of expression, I Pourya Alezade, founder of ‘‘EyePath’’, have grown up in a country where there is no freedom of speech. Unfortunately, I have witnessed many were punished for expressing themselves. Growing up with these fear of expression of a small town, I found ways to allow expression non-verbally. I spent a lot of my time in graphic and artworks. I put my thoughts on my artwork, hoping to deliver clear message. With the believe and determination resulted in amazing artworks which received numerous positive feedbacks.
One day, I printed one of my artwork on a T-shirt and wore it to a gathering with my friends and family. To my surprise, almost everyone appreciated the message I was delivering without spelling it. Bad principles are most effectively overcome by good principles – backed up by ethics and culture – rather than bans and censorship. I started to design more. After making some saving, I founded my own company ‘‘EyePath’’.We dedicate to build a strong brand, our mission is to provide high standard quality materials for valuable opinion. In addition, we believe ‘‘EyePath’’ is the first company to be built with such purpose.
Say two friends are travelling to another country. One of them wears semi formal and another wears a T-shirt with art that express excitement and love to the country. What do you think would be the impact of the art on the chance of welcoming by the local? By wearing the T-shirt, he is already showing how excited he is and how much he loves the country without saying it. We can send a message in non-verbal and let others know our opinion, personality, or something that we are proud of. In short, it’s a great way to communicate to the world around us. EyePath provides various artworks & designs on t-shirt, cap, hat and other clothing.
A free society depends on the free exchange of ideas. Nearly all ideas are capable of giving offence to someone. Many of the most important, profound ideas in human history, such as those of Galileo Galilei and Charles Darwin, caused great offence in their time and yet reputable.
