Championing local makers

We first met Stanley on a freezing day in December on Todmorden (can you pronounce that?) Market where he sells locally baked bread. He was wearing a pair of HebTroCo moleskin jeans that he’d picked up from Oxfam in town. We got chatting and he explained how he was printing tie dye stuff in a unit he was renting for peanuts after it was flood damaged. Good local connections lead to great products.

From regenerative farming practices to sustainable end product

These T-shirts are made from Australian Super Cotton which has a long staple (fibre) length. This means you can create a stronger garment out of less yarn. Fewer fibres in turn mean softness and a more luxurious feel. The raw premium cotton feels very soft and silky, with a bit of a shine to it, similar to wool. 

Cotton comes from a single origin which is Glenn Rogan’s family farm in St George, Australia. Glenn voluntarily uses Best Management Practices (myBMP) whilst growing his cotton.

Made in Manchester, tie dyed in Mytholmroyd

All our t-shirts are made in Manchester. The raw cotton arrives as a bale at English Fine Cottons, where it’s spun into thread. Manchester was the original Cottonopolis. This is a proper British t-shirt.

Every bale has its own unique number, so we can trace each one back to the harvest date and even its location in the field. Keep it geeky, keep it cool.
