WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
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 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 find the right 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. Therefore 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 buy 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 or recycled polyester. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reducing the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilisers.
Once the product has been sourced and tried, it is then screen printed here in the UK.
