FWP BY Rae was born out of a love for good quality sustainable clothing, that’s both stylish and affordable.

I previously co-owned a small independent wine company (The French Wine Project) with my then husband, running the day to day accounts (boring), marketing and design of the website. I spent a lot of time researching wines in order to write up tasting notes, and found that a lot of descriptions and some words in particular kept jumping out at me, also giving meaning to things outside of the world of wine.

A lover of a good slogan Tee, I soon had enough inspiration for some designs. Next was finding the right products, and working out the best way to print, and how to.

Whilst trying to source products, I also wanted to get an idea of what is involved in printing onto clothing, especially as I wanted a clean, bright and good quality print. With a friend in tow, I signed up to do a course in screen printing so that I could fully understand the process.

I only use products from ethical companies, meaning the  clothing is made in factories with good working conditions and fair wages, using raw materials of organic cotton, Tencel, Modal, recycled polyester. All the finishing is done here in the UK.

Cut and style is extremely important to me, and as some of my favourite styles have been discontinued from the manufacturers I use, I have taken it on myself to design and produce my own products which will be available from April 2019.  

Check out the range in our shop and I hope you love them as much as I do.
