Crosshatch

Definition: ‘A unique weave of denim that is created by mixing uneven yarns and develops a unique crisscrossed pattern as it fades’. Crosshatch denim is hardy, full of character and always on trend, traits reflected by the Crosshatch brand, which has become one of the UK’s leading denim and street-style labels. Born of humble Mancunian roots in the year 2000, Crosshatch started life as a denim and T-shirt brand defining itself from the crowd with illustrative graphics, bold use of colour and innovative denim styles. Within months the brand became a major player in independent and key national retailers. Crosshatch prides itself in keeping close to its roots as well as the values and experiences of its core consumers – Manchester’s famous club, rock and dance scenes and vibrant youth culture continually informing the influences on the ranges as they have grown and evolved over the years. Their head office and showrooms remain in Manchester, where the brand still likes to work hard and play hard. The Crosshatch customer wants originality, casual style, value for money and authenticity and return to the brand over and over again. Crosshatch garments are outstanding, using innovative attention to detail, bold colour palettes and cutting-edge slogans to stand out from the crowd. Over the years they have of course attracted many imitators, all trying to ride on the back of their success; it is flattering, but they have managed to stay ahead of their rivals by staying true to their brand ethos while moving on with the next thing and injecting the unique Crosshatch attitude along the way. Crosshatch is a brand to enjoy: they enjoy creating it, their customers enjoy wearing it. The future for Crosshatch is brighter than ever, they maintain their 15-20% year-on-year growth globally and look forward to welcoming new customers to the brand every day.

Kweku Clothing

Brand that specialises in bold abstract art on garments and accessories for the modern individual, with an alternative mindset from the consensus, and an abstract perspective on life. The brand was founded by the Ghana born and London raised designer Kweku Quagraine. Kweku's reason for starting the brand was a belief that he could offer an affordable, yet cutting edge alternative to the mainstream brands that were creating a sheep like mentality amongst consumers. As a graduate of Social Policy from Goldsmiths University, Kweku did not take the conventional route most designers take into the industry. However it was his time spent at Goldsmiths amongst his creative peers where he developed his creative juices, his appreciation for abstract art and his eye for fashion. Each garment produced is individually printed, as well as the labels individually hand sewn. Kweku Clothing does this to reiterate to customers that the brand's products are not massed produced, adding additional assurance that each individual garment is quality checked. From the humble beginnings of selling garments on a market stall in Greenwich Market in South East London, Kewku Clothing has gone on to obtain a dedicated and loyal following from all corners of the globe.
