2020 is no doubt a tough year , no denying that but as when there is a forest fire , new life flourishes and positive things happen. It's certainly a time for reflection and for restarts and here in our beloved London Borough of Hackney we have seen a huge uptake in people living positively and healthily, communities coming together , young people discovering the outdoors, wild swimming and just simple hanging out. Not just in east London but it would seem all around the world there has been a massive cycling boom. BOOM!. We love that and it has had a very positive impact on our online, homegrown, down home business. The last couple of years the brand has been on somewhat of a back burner with just the odd piece coming out now and again. With the arrival of C19 and two wheels being a thing our sales have taken right off again. So we have been busy getting back up to speed , designing, creating and dreaming. So far we have a few new pieces just come online and more to come real soon. We going to take it one step at a time. No need to conquer the world but humbly make something that is positivity all round. We are always trying to be funky and bold , playful and a bit different . The aim is to go as environmental as possible (our new neck warmers are made with 100% recycled polyester, we use bio-compostable bags and paper tape on our boxes). We want to make sure people are paid properly and treated well , and source locally when ever possible (50 % fo our range is currently made in the UK).
We would like to thank everyone who has already supported us over the years . For those new to Hackney GT welcome . Please stay tuned, sign up to our mailing list, check-in with our socials and spread the word. The future could just be bright and it actually is about winning because #lovewins.
