As part of our ongoing fundraising efforts, we’ve teamed up with Glasgow-based slow fashion exponents 1 of 100 to release this limited edition design. Limited, as you may have guessed, to 100.

It’s our 15th birthday this month – we were going to do a whole thing, there were going to be events with different partners from across the cultural spectrum every weekend through the month, it was really going to be very good. Unfortunately, you know, the mass curtailment of civil liberties etc. So we’re having a more muted affair, and hopefully doing the grand bash for our Sweet 16. We’d still like to mark the occasion though – so here is our very first purchasable merch, a T-shirt featuring our SHOW UP FOR THE ARTS message, as beautifully illustrated by Jacky Sheridan.

We’re working with 1 of 100 because they closely align with our values. They’re locally-based, thoughtful in their ethical approach, they advocate for slow fashion. Their T-shirts use low-impact, organic cotton and manufacturing processes that minimise their environmental impact, using only renewable energy.

Their T-shirts come from a supplier that’s built their business on social responsibility, paying a fair wage wherever they do business and FWF accredited (fairwear.org for more details on that). It's been calculated that each of the T-shirts saves around 7kg of CO2e, and their products proudly carry a ‘Climate Neutral’ label. They’ve got a long series of collaborations with luminaries ranging from Cosey Fanni Tutti to Chrissy Hynde via Ian Rankin. We're really excited to be joining their ranks.

Our limited edition T-shirt is available now, £35 from weare1of100.co.uk
