What is FOXA?
FOXA is a small brand I set up to sell my screen-printed T-shirt designs. The aim of this project is to add another really distinctive style, embroidered sweatshirts.
I was fed up with screen-printed designs fading or generally not lasting well. Embroidery is much more hardwearing and long lasting than screen printing.
I designed the sweatshirt as a bit of an experiment to start with, but the final effect was amazing and pushed me to try and take this project further. After several months and several iterations of the design I settled on this;
I chose black stitching on a black sweatshirt to create a subtle design. The cotton stitching catches the light in different ways to give a really interesting effect.
I have never seen a sweatshirt with an embroidered design of this size before. In fact, when I was trying to find a supplier to work with most were confused that I wanted it so big! All in all, it’s really unique piece of clothing that has the potential to be a really popular style.
How will the investment be used?
So far I’ve got the final design and I’ve found a great local supplier to work with. All I need now is an investment boost that will go towards;
- The first production run.
- Setting up a FOXA website.
- Marketing the sweatshirt design.
I've got loads more ideas for embroidered designs on sweatshirts and more. If the project takes off, I’ll develop additional designs that work with the stitching process and evolve the current design to make it work with different colour schemes.
Why should I support?
The rewards are awesome! You’ll be able to get your hands on the sweatshirt before anyone else. You’ll also be helping support a small business working with local suppliers.
Donations over £73 will receive two FOXA sweatshirts and anything over £100 you'll receive a double full bundle of 2X sweatshirts, 2X t-shirts, 2X bags!
All sweatshirts and t-shirts can be chosen in any size.
Risks and challenges
There almost no chance of this project failing with successful funding.
Design work is complete.
Production tests have been completed.
I've been working with the embroidery supplier since day 1. I've seen his facilities and i'm fully confident that he can provide the quantity of sweatshirts required without any quality issues and in the time frame required.
