The Banks Journal mission is simple – to merge style & function
with a sustainable approach to design and development.
The BANKS Story
Banks Journal is a modern clothing label inspired by coastal living and a love of design. Thanks to its founders, it’s infused with a unique blend of Japanese and Australian heritage. Masa Shibahara and Motoo Noda grew up under the neon lights of Tokyo. Tim Cochran and Rama McCabe spent their childhood in the creative hub of Byron Bay.
These contrasting perspectives of the world come together as Banks Journal to create the contemporary coastal look and feel of the brand.
These four individuals have combined their vast industry knowledge and experience to shape a label with offices in Byron Bay, Tokyo and Newport Beach in Southern California
