Established in 2015, TRAP HOUSE CHICAGO operates at the intersection of restorative justice, streetwear, and cooperative economics. We are a lifestyle brand for men, women, and kids, as well as a retail establishment committed to healing and transforming individuals, communities, and culture. Our products and concept stores are designed to engage community members to think critically about social norms, our role, and our responsibility to the ability to transform ourselves and our own communities.
Since our first concept store in 2017, we have been and remain successful in providing customers a unique shopping and learning experience.
THC was founded by Mashaun Ali Hendricks, a respected leader in the Restorative Justice community, who has over 15 years of hands-on restorative justice-based community work and relationships.
