The Silverstick journey started in 2010 when a love of adventure and the environment inspired them to create a collection of T-shirts for people who enjoy outdoor sports and activities.
Silverstick wanted to put the outdoors and sustainability at the foundation of their design. Buy once, wear often, love forever was epitomised by their made for life ethos. So they sourced high quality organic cotton fabric, created an active fit, flat locked every seam for greater comfort and hand printed the tees with outdoor motifs in eco-friendly inks.
Since then Silverstick has expanded their men’s and women’s ranges, continuing to develop products with an active ethos and strong connection to nature. They call them adventure goods as they are perfect for exploring the ocean, the trail and the mountains.
Whether you use a board, a bike or a camera, the outdoors is your playground. Explore more in British adventure goods made for life.

YOJO is an indipendent design studio, hence, contemporary fashion label conceived in London and sustainably handmade in Italy.
Through founder and designer Joe Sorrentino’s interest in art, designs, photography and cultural diversity, YOJO employs an unconventional and multidisciplinary approach to create elegant and iconic fashion accessories for men and women.
The YOJO hallmark is defined by the experimental use of ceramics - a completely eco-friendly material that for millennia has drawn the attention of designers and creatives alike across a wide variety of industries, but fashion.
With a strong commitment towards sustainable materials and collaborations with independent Italian artisans, YOJO is a label created for the next ethically aware generation.
The concept behind the OXYMORON collection was to re-design classic accessories with a contemporary twist… elaborated at the essence, but minimalist at glance. To accomplish such a design challange, the brand combined the clean minimalist look of ceramics with the elegant classy drapes of silk and created a line of man and woman accessories preserving the past whilst pushing forward.
With the OXYMORON collection, the label has also embraced modularity and waste reduction to provide clients with effortless tailor-made accessories allowing freedom of choice, custom aesthetics and piece of mind during one’s evolution towards conscious awareness.
Style with nothing to hide.
Know the Origin was created to drive much needed change in the clothing industry.
We are completely transparent in our clothing production, having visited every stage of the process - from cotton seed to garment - to produce Fairtrade and organic goodies for you.
