Designers Wanted: WOMbat Asks Adventure Lovers To Get Creative
on: May 11, 2010, 6:06 am
Adventure clothing brand WOMbat is giving wannabe fashion
designers across the country the chance to get creative and win the
chance to have their very own t-shirts sold on the UK’s high streets.
Between June and December the Cheshire-based firm which sells everything from mens hoodies to organic jewellery will pick one
competition winner a month. That person’s t-shirt design will then be professionally
made-up, printed and sold online and through WOMbat’s shops in England and Wales.
In line with WOMbat’s efforts to make its range of clothing as ethical as possible,
the designs will be printed on Fairtrade cotton. As well as seeing their t-shirts on
sale in UK shops, each competition winner will get a £100 WOMbat voucher.
WOMbat’s Victoria Tingey said: "We know the people who wear our clothes love the
outdoors, love adventure and love ethically sourced products. We’re asking them to
put all that passion down on paper and come up with a t-shirt design that will
really appeal to our customers.
"You can find inspiration on top of a mountain, at the beach or in a cave or
pothole – it doesn’t matter. We just want people to draw on their love of life and
adventure. The more individual and personal the design are the better."
No one at WOMbat is particularly keen on rules and regulations, so they’ve been kept
to a minimum. Full terms and conditions are available on the company's website, but the basics are that designs must be original and entrants must be
over the age of 18 and a resident of the UK or Ireland.
You can download a t-shirt template through WOMbat’s website and completed designs
can either be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or handed in at one of
WOMbat’s stores in Chester, Cambridge, Abersoch or Bristol.
Entries are now open and the winner of the first draw will be announced during the
first week of June.
www.wombatclothing.com was established in 2004 as an online retailer specialising in
adventure clothing with a focus on ethically sourced materials and Fairtrade goods.
Since then the Cheshire-based business has grown and now boasts four shops across
England and Wales, selling a wide range of clothing and accessories from hoodies to
socks, including a significant number of Fairtrade items.
