Three women in Phat Collection organic cotton tee shirts from The Word Forest Organisation

A Fabulously Phat Collaboration

We are thrilled to smash a bottle of vegan bubbly on the side of The Phat Collection, a selection of stunningly stylish, ethical tee-shirts now available from our shop.

They’re 100% organic, vegan friendly, produced in a sustainably powered factory on the Isle of Wight and we’re going to plant a tree for every one sold – news doesn’t get much greener than that!

The Phat Pasty Co are one of our amazing corporate partners. Their team make savoury pasties, pies and slices down in Cornwall. Phat are run by Paul and Laura Clark – pictured below – a husband and wife team who have created a fun brand, part of which includes a mouthwatering range of planet-friendly, vegan savouries. In 2020, they launched Phat@Home.

This ‘bang on trend’ set of tee-shirt designs, celebrates our partnership with The Phat Pasty Co and we think the finished products are as cool as Phat’s hot food! The Phat Collection comprises elegant and a few funny designs too. They’re exclusive creations, dreamed into existence by two incredibly talented designers who are volunteering for us: Anna Twells and Bethany Martin.

Since September 2019, the Phat Controller, Paul and his team have been making a very kind donation to Word Forest for every single vegan product sold. These include their mouthwatering Keralan pasty (our office’s favourite) which is filled to the brim with cauliflower, chickpeas, onion bhaji and mango chutney, which won a Gold Award in the Melton Mowbray British Pie Awards 2020!

Visit [email protected] to see their full range of edible temptations and order yourself a bit of vegan nomliciousness, sometime soon. Our tees are also being showcased on Phat’s site and every penny raised from tee-sales, will be rolling straight back to Word Forest – bless them all!

Watch this to see what our tee-shirt producers are doing to encourage circular fashion!

As for the garment producers, Teemill, they are equally smashing. Teemill is an extension of Rapanui Clothing which is based on the Isle of Wight. We’ve wanted to raise money by working with Rob Drake-Knight and his team for a long time for a variety of reasons – here are just a few.

They say:

Our lifelong mission is to make clothing sustainable. Our products are made from natural materials, using renewable energy, and everything we make is designed from the start to be sent back when it is worn out. We make new products from the materials we recover. Instead of making waste, we make new products from it. It’s a circular supply chain.

And in our factory on the Isle of Wight, our t-shirts are produced in real time, in the seconds after they are ordered. We only make what people actually need, when they need it. The conscientious application of technology has enabled us to demonstrate that there is a different way of operating, and it works.

What a lovely way to wrap up the week (wrap up, get it?)
