About this project
Cloth Armoury is a new and unique street wear brand created for gamers and geeks to express their passion with pride. Our goal is to bring gaming to life, bridging a connection between you and your favourite universes.
As huge gaming and pop culture fans ourselves, we want to share our vision with you right here on Kickstarter, via a series of fresh and original designs based on our own experiences. We’ve already done the “heavy lifting” - now we need your help to forge the Cloth Armoury!
What would an epic journey be without a trusty companion? Meet Helmsworth, the living embodiment of our company logo. His personality represents all the common traits shared by gamers and geeks alike.
Ever the maverick, Helmsworth tends to boldly jump in with both feet (generally before thinking) and take on challenges most would shy away from. Despite being mischievous and playful at times, Helmsworth is a loyal and eager companion (even when he’s being a pain in the butt). Join Helmsworth and let us continue this excellent adventure together!
First on the line up, we have a variety of unique T-shirt designs all inspired by games and pop culture. We know that geekery comes in different flavours, so we've worked hard to represent a wide range of tastes.
We set our drives to warp speed and traveled through a series of alternate universes to bring you these blended designs below!
Join our champion Helmsworth in his quest for glory and watch as he almost certainly runs into every pitfall along the way!
Express yourself with a blend of witty and wonderful gamer & geek vernacular.
Witness our helm undergo various metamorphoses, each harking back to iconic gaming titles.
To top this Kickstarter off (pun intended) we have also included a range of headwear, embroidered with the Cloth Armoury logo. So whether you want to roll like Helmsworth or simply cover-up that bed hair, these caps will get your head in the game. Pledge for the headwear as a standalone reward or add them on as part of a package.
Hey there! We’re Len and Vad, two good mates, self-confessed gamers and serial geeks of the highest order! Our interest was sparked at an early age smashing out Super Mario bros. on the original Nintendo console. From there we graduated to all things including comics, sci-fi & fantasy series and a (possibly unhealthy) obsession with certain card games.
The idea for Cloth Armoury emerged when we set out to translate our obsession into clothes that allow you to take your favourite gaming/geek universe wherever you go. So we tore ourselves away from the regular gaming binge and set to work creating our own brand. Whether you’re a hardcore shooter, a classic Sci-Fi nerd, or a self-proclaimed wizard, Cloth Armoury will provide you with the threads to express your inner geek to the real world!
We would now like to invite you to share in our passion and what better way than by wearing and displaying it proudly.
In order to provide you with the highest quality apparel, we have spent the past year perfecting our designs, sourcing the most reliable manufacturers and ensuring that our T-shirts are second to none.
Our detailed designs are complemented by advanced printing techniques, quality inks and super comfortable, luxury tees. As a result our tees are able to display an added level of depth and texture, while remaining durable and soft to the touch.
Cloth Armoury T-shirts are made from 100% premium cotton, specially designed for maximum comfort and fit. Sizes will range from XS to XXL for both men and women. After the campaign, we will send out a backer survey to confirm your preferred design and size.
To ensure that our garment and printing quality is of the highest standard, we had no option but to strap on our own set of armour and undertake a journey to seek the perfect manufacturer. We journeyed far and wide and acquired many samples, which we then subjected to rigorous testing (wore, washed, stretched, pulled, poked and prodded). In the end there can be only one.
As well as being comfortable, well-fitting and extremely durable, we are proud to say that all the garments we offer are Fair Wear Foundation certified and meet the Global Organic Textile Standard. This means that our garments are manufactured in an ethical, sweatshop-free environment, using textiles farmed from sustainable sources.
With our journey complete, we bring the rewards direct to your doorstep!
With the forging of the Cloth Armoury nearly complete, we would now really appreciate your support for the home stretch to help kickstart production. Below is a graphic of the journey thus far, as well as the plotted course toward uncharted territory.
Risks and challenges
We’ve taken every care and precaution in order to avoid any possible risks to you, our wonderful backers. We work very closely with our garment manufacturers to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible. We don't anticipate any setbacks but in the event of any delays or changes we will persevere to communicate openly while we overcome any unexpected issues. We are committed to keeping you informed during every step of development, production and delivery. Additionally, if you need to get in contact with us for whatever reason, we will endevour to respond as soon as possible.
With your help, we can bring our vision to life and deliver a quality product that will be the talking point of your next adventure. Thank you again for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
