Fifty Cambodian garment workers document the day-to-day reality of their lives making clothes for the high street.
The Buckler is classic cool. Riz’s shortest short to date (14” outseam), the cut was inspired by Riz Smiths recent trips to Italy. Short enough to swim and tan in yet just long enough to feel comfortable walking up to a bar to order a drink in.View full article →
Hanyuauku - Rukwangali, Namibia (v): The act of walking on tiptoes across warm sand.
This organic cotton t-shirt features a three colour original screen print by Seth Banks. “Hanyuauku” is a Rukwangali verb meaning “to walk on tiptoes across warm sand.” RuKwangali, is a Bantu language spoken by 85,000 people along the Okavango River in Namibia.
Our painted logo t-shirts were inspired by the idea of a mark carved into a rock or daubed onto a surface with a thick paintbrush. The Brothers We Stand icon featured on the back symbolises a person standing and represents our desire to stand with the men and women who make our clothes.View full article →

We have power like never before.
We live in a capitalist society, so the buying and selling of goods/services is predominantly how the world around us is shaped. Thanks to the internet, anyone can now put a stall out. This means we have a meaningful choice as to how we spend our money.
Whereas our choice used to be limited to the ethics of whoever happened to set up shop down the road, we can now buy renewable energy from Bulb, a conflict free mobile phone from Fairphone and ethically made clothes from Brothers We Stand!
Hobson’s choice is no more. We have power to influence the world like never before.
On Wednesday 24th May we will be taking part in Supply Change, an event by Beer Here which celebrates the power we have as consumers to build a better future. Hope to see you there.
