THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTED US.

TO SHOP OUR CURRENT COLLECTION & TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT US VISIT WWW.VELECO.CC NOW

Hi Kickstarters

We're Jamie and John and we're both cyclists. We couldn't find cyclewear anywhere in the world that we thought was truly eco and ethical, so we hit upon the idea of setting up VELECO the world's first Fair Trade and eco-friendly cyclewear company.

Our aim is provide sweatshop free cyclewear that is stylish and affordable.

VELECO is different to other cyclewear brands as we use natural and recycled materials in our clothing wherever possible, we pay our workers a fair wage and our new range of organic and Fairtrade certified cotton t-shirts and hoodies will be carbon neutral, as they are going to be produced in a factory that uses wind turbines.

Plus we pay a Fair Trade premium on every cap, short and jacket made that goes into a health and welfare fund for our workers.

As Seen In...

VELECO needs your help to launch a new range of eco and ethical cyclewear that is good for people and the planet. As our factories require minimum order quantities and we need to buy all the material for the new collection, so we need to raise £20,000 / $31,372. So check out our rewards and pledge now!

We're a small self-funded start-up with big plans, we want our new t-shirts and hoodies to be made in a carbon neutral factory and we've got some great new products and designs that we want to launch, but we need your help to make this happen.

We don't have big marketing budgets, so we hope that with your help we can reach cyclists across the world and give them an eco and ethical alternative to the big brands.

We'll Give You Great Savings!

As a thank you for your support, we're offering you great savings on our ranges if you pledge to us now! Check out our designs and rewards...

Take a look at our sizing options below.

We're still working on the tailoring of the jacket so we will confirm the sizing to all our supporters through an update.

As the jacket has a tailored fit and the sizing runs from XXS to XXL it is suitable for men and women.

We're also finishing off the tailoring of the shorts, as these are cargo style shorts and the sizing goes from XXS to XXL they are suitable for both men and women.

We will confirm the sizing to all our supporters with an update.

We've now reached our funding goal, so thank you to all our supporters.
