ATELIER 2021 CHECKLIST:
This is the beginning we've got an entire library of ideas we're excited to show the world.
Initially Atelier was created while I was at University, basically coming to the realisation that I was in the wrong place, I've always been interested in fashion so basically I thought fuck it.
I decided to buy some screen-printing stuff and print some tees, not really expecting much, but like one year later here we are.
I want Atelier to stand for the idea that if i can do it anyone can all you need is the proper motivation to create.
Embrace Your Ideas.
Atelier is for Everyone.
Appreciate everyone that's supported us so far, this is just the beginning. None of this would be possible without you.
Screen-printing has a bad rep for being "unsustainable" but in the long run this is the most sustainable and ethical way to produce a long lasting garment, a lot of the other printing methods you'll notice will wash out after 2-5 washes. Plastisol ink is cured into the garment so you won't be having that problem, in our eyes there's no point printing something that won't last forever.
All Our garments are 100% ethically made and sourced, We only use garments that're made out of 100% organic or recycled cottons, in this day and age it's very important to keep waste to a minimum and source everything with a sustainablity and ethical promise attached to it.
In this day and age we think it's important to keep a small carbon footprint especially when fast-fashion is such a contributing force to the climate.
following on from that that's why we make everything to order and screen-print ever single order that comes through,
INSIDE THE GARMENT WITH THE WASHTAGS YOU'LL FIND ETHICAL ORGANISATIONS THAT HAVE REGISTERED THE GARMENT AS 100% VEGAN/ SUSTAINABLE/ ETHICAL, FOR MORE INFORMATION YOU CAN FIND IT WITHIN YOUR HOODIE/ T SHIRT.
YOU CAN READ MORE ABOUT IT IN DETAIL HERE.
Last collection we had hoodies at £40 and tees at £25, in volume 2 we wanted to focus on improving quality all around, that's why it's taken us a while to get everything together to release.
Last collection we were buying blank hoodies from a middle man (a supplier) this season we've made our own pattern and are now dealing directly with a supplier, everything is still organic and sustainable but a little more expensive for us.
volume one hoodies were around 310GSM this season we're using 430GSM blanks, which means they're a little thicker and t-shirts were around 180GSM this collection t-shirts are 230GSM.
WITH FULL TRANSPARENCY: ORGANIC COTTON IS ALSO MORE EXPENSIVE THAN SYNTHETIC COTTONS/ NEWLY SOURCED COTTONS.
Thank you for the continued support, we're very blessed to be in a position to even make these upgrades.
To get some free stickers send us an envelope pre-stamped/paid for to the below address.

This is subject to how many stickers we have available, message us beforehand on Instagram, if we don't have any stickers available we'll put the envelope to the side and send some when we have more stickers available.
We use custom blanks made ethically and sustainably, out of recycled polyester and organic cottons.
It took us a long time to find the perfect blank, but we got there eventually.

At least 3 Stickers.
Thank You Card with a Lifetime discount code.
we like to give back as much as possible sometimes we'll also include accessories, last collection it was a custom facemask we made from scratch.
Why are t-shirts on pre-order? Basically we've ordered the t-shirts we're just waiting for them to be made/ arrive which can take 2-4 weeks.
we hope the discounted price compensates for the wait, you can cancel your pre-order at anytime if you'd like. just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We're making a few changes to how we ship.
This volume, we're offering a more diverse way to our shipping process, before we had a fixed rate, this volume it'll be based on weight, with an option to receive tracking.
Typically these are the standard shipping times:
UK: Typically 2-5 Working Days.
EUROPE: Typically 3-8 Working Days.
US/CA: Typically 6-9 Working Days.
(these are the shipping times from order fulfilment not when the order is made, please keep that in mind.)
if you have anymore questions please feel free to contact us.
We ship internationally, if you're having any trouble checking out please feel free to get intouch with us here.
In vol.1 we used a standard shipping rate, we learned a lot. this volume we'll be shipping based on weight so you won't be paying £15 shipping for a tee etc.
also any order above £100 qualifies for free shipping everywhere.
