From graphic design to psychoanalysis, childhood education and beyond, its influence is undeniable. Along with typographical design, diagrams, symbols and various illustrations, it’s a fascinating lesson in a wildly significant movement.

This one—billed as something somewhere between a Negroni and an Old Fashioned—is herbaceous, bitter and boasts notes of pomegranate and orange peel. Plus, every bottle comes packed with an adaptogen blend designed to supply the body with antioxidants, increase and improve circulation and fight usual fatigue. In this lightly carbonated iteration, there’s both gentian root and golden root extract.

Released as a part of Levi’s entirely recyclable collection, the Wellthread trucker—made in collaboration with Outerknown—is constructed from a blend of cotton and cottonized hemp.

While the Kickstarter cards will fund the first edition, future proceeds will be donated to Animal Haven’s Recovery Road Fund.
