We have made it a priority to employ and support local businesses in our area and we are happy to say that all of our screen printing and embroidery is done in our home base of the United Kingdom.
Our main supplier is a company in London, who we carefully selected due to their excellent ethical policies, respecting people’s employment rights and caring for environmental issues. They keep all their employees on permanent contracts, and since 2013 have been paying their employees the London Living Wage. All their inks are vegan friendly too, and we specifically use water-based eco-friendly ones. Our other main finishing supplier for screen printing and embroidery is based in Glasgow and been in business for almost 40 years. Both our suppliers specialise in sourcing the widest range of ethically sourced, Fairtrade, Fair Wear and GOTS certified garments in the UK.
We use vegan friendly water-based inks for ALL of our screen printed designs — it's harder to come by but we specifically took the time to find long-term partners who could offer this in the best and brightest quality available. The result? Super soft prints which are far better for improving the health of people and the planet by reducing the negative impact regular ink has.
