The Style

It’s time to break free. Come out of the creative closet. Be you.

Chunky Armadillo captures the spirit of the junk gypsy with signature southern sass and country charm. Bringing together the best of urban farm girl and free-spirited new bohemia, Chunky Armadillo is all about self-expression, creative freedom, and chillin’ on the front porch while the world does its thing.

So relax with us, sip somethin’ strong, let folks know who you are, and wear it loud and proud.

This is our time.
