Thanks for dropping in! We obviously share the same good taste – a love of fashion and iconic tunes from our youth, along with a great sense of humour.
Spinback was born earlier this year, through lockdown, when the sun was still shining and the phrase ‘digital Christmas’ hadn’t even come into our vocabulary. But with our social life in tatters we had time on our hands. It gave us time to think, to think of an idea that would keep us busy and make people smile. A throwaway comment over a glass of wine (remember those glorious days when the pubs were actually open and allowed to serve alcohol!). It was then that our ideas came to fruition….
A few weeks later with our initial samples in hand we set about creating our brand. Numerous sheets of A3 paper with ideas scribbled down in no particular order were strewn across our desks as ideas and concepts were either accepted or rejected or put in a pile that we would ‘deal with later’. Hours were spent learning how to build an ecommerce website and testing how on earth these things work. More sampling, more t-shirt prints and more ideas. We were, after two months, ready to launch.
We’re starting small, just to test the water, with two slogans on t-shirts for both male and females. We need to see just how popular our products are and if people want to buy them. We want to be inclusive and therefore offer our ladies tops in six sizes, in three colours and our male tops in four sizes and two colours. That adds up to quite a lot of product lines so we want to make sure we have what people want.
We also wanted to use products that are ethically sourced and manufactured, which is why we are using the t-shirts we selected. As our range grows we will continue to source where possible products that meet this brief.
So on the product front it would be great to hear from you if you have any requests for anything specific – long sleeve t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags – whatever you want we can source and potentially add to our offerings so drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a list of slogans that we can hopefully introduce in the not too distant future – it’s just fun when we hear a song on the radio and we start spinning the lyrics!
So to wrap up we just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us on our journey so far. In the words of Karen & Richard Carpenter “We’ve only just begun”.
