How Did CHROME HEARTS Become So Popular
Even though this brand has become very popular, with an estimated worth of over 1 Billion dollars, very few people know about it. They are very low-key and a bit mysterious which prompts many of us to begin to ask questions. Being human, we are naturally curious, right.
Chrome Hearts is a ‘Family Business’, meaning, mom, dad and the children are all involved, and when it comes to major decisions within the company, a family vote rules the day.
One of the main reasons they are more expensive is because all products are made in the United States where the cost of labor/manufacture is higher. They have their own factory in Hollywood, California where they employ over 1,000 people.
There is another reason why Chrome Hearts have become so popular and a little more expensive, and that is because they only release new products in limited quantities They will only introduce two collections each year to the market and will therefore be classified as somewhat rare.
Each individual piece can take a very long time to develop. The Stark family are very particular that each product is exactly as they have envisioned it throughout the development and manufacturing process.
