MADE IN PORTUGAL
THROWING OUR HAT INTO THE RING
To bring the traditional Trapper hat up to date we added a Merino pile lining and enlisted the help of a long established, family run hat makers. The result is a handcrafted piece of head wear, made in England and fit for purpose.
INSULATION: MAKING IT RIGHT
Child like inquisitiveness in how things are made allows us to keep improving. The adult in us then selects the right factory, puts together the right team and compiles the right components.
When Rui casually dropped “Whatever you dream of, let me dream with you” we knew we’d found the right factory to produce our shirting. With the new shirts arriving in the workshop - second season improvements and with the introduction of girls styles, we tour the factory and talk about our dreams for the future.
THROW IN A TOWEL
Our first towel, surf trip tried and tested. We've chosen a luxury soft terry loop and generous size, produced at a factory in Portugal who not only use 100% organic cotton, but a certified organic production process too.

Knowledge, expertise and the passion to put in a bit of research and delvelopment to get a fledgling flock from fleece to yarn - we spent time in the UK heartland of wool production, with the best in the game.
BLESS THEIR WOOL SOCKS
Too excited to wait for their delivery, we travelled up to see our new striped Last-Long sock come off the production line. Bamkins recently celebrated their 125th year in business, here's to stuff that lasts a long time.
