Couldn't love this top more! It goes with everything - you can dress it up or down. I was so surprised how cool you stay even in warm weather. There's nothing like it so you're sure to have a unique look and wait for it...be comfortable at the same time! Kudos to Clare and team on a fab top!!

A Dashing (and Dotting!) Tee

I was intrigued by the short tees when they were first released, and finally was able to see them in person when I visited the mill in September 2022. I immediately fell in love with the Coorie Caramel Tee. Its very modern weave doesn’t look at all like a traditional tartan, but the fabric and texture speaks to the same loving traditions that Prickly Thistle is dedicated to.

For me, the asymmetrical designs created by the no-waste approach to cutting and sewing garments makes for a stunning top. I received several compliments when I first wore it, and people were amazed that it was from a tartan mill!

Fantastic Cool but also cosy . Love the brighter colours as it’s a tee.
A tee with just a hood added would be amazing.

For all items ordered as part of the 4 X A Year Club, we can have your clothing to you from as early as 2 weeks or it may be up to 8-10 weeks if we need more fabric. As we are weavers, its super handy right! No waiting months and months for items to pass around various factories, we do it all under one roof.

There is loads of cool things you can do and do not need to do when you wear natural fibre clothing! For the full low down on all this caring, checkout our guide and for more info on worn wear repairs, here is some tricks of the trade!.

Here we proudly share with you our less than x 1 mark-up that we apply, and how this garment has been costed.

Most brands in the 'fashion' world add multipliers of x 2 for wholesale then add another x 2 for retail. When you buy direct from us its a less than x 1, we use the profits from everything we create to support more fairly paid jobs and push the textile world to be more eco-conscious. But we do a lot more like donating to charities and education bodies. This is what we proudly call our ethical pay it forward mark up.

The cost breakdown for this garment is;
Fabric Cost £23.91
Labour To Make £30.00
QC, Labelling & Packing £7.50
Overheads (incl insurance, premise costs etc) £9.21
Total Cost To Company £70.62
Ethical Pay It Forward Mark Up x 0.84 £59.38

Time to Make : 1.5hrs
Cut 0.25hrs
Overlock 0.25hrs
Assemble 0.75hrs
Trim & Press 0.25hrs

For Cost Per Wear (CPW) we just wanted to share how buying less, paying ethical prices, loving and wearing more is actually really affordable, it’s all about the number of wears!

You wear the item 3 times a week for the next 3 years, that is 468 wears. The CPW is £115 divided by 468 wears, Cost Per Wear 28p!

Read more about our transparent pricing and processes here.

It is something the 'fashion' world in particular is really bad at.... but we are bad-ass so nothing to hide under this piece of tartan, nothing bad but maybe an ass!

We want to help be part of the solution that drives regenerative change. Buying less, loving more, paying ethical prices and feeling awesome is what we are all about.

To do that, we have these yes we give a sh#t options for you!
