New stretch target

We've exceeded our target, so have upped our stretch target to £7000, which is enough funding to design and launch a website with online shop and put together a marketing plan to include an advertising campaign.

This will allow us to spread the Work Shy message, reach new customers and really make a difference within the fashion industry.


We're Work Shy a sustainable workwear brand. We're raising funds to improve our production process. 

A B O U T   U S

At Work Shy we make durable work wear that doesn't cost the earth. All garments are made to order here in our Cardiff studio. We use organic cotton canvas, which we dye ourselves with low impact, eco-friendly dyes. These dyes give our jackets their unique look and feel, as unlike heavy chemical dyes, our dyes will soften and mature with wear giving that authentic french workwear appeal.

F U N D I N G 

The funding we'll gain from YOUR pledges will help us to grow our business whilst improving our ethical credentials.

- Purchasing an industrial machine to increase the amount of fabric we dye in one batch, which will reduce the amount of water and energy we use.

- Secure a larger production facility to include space for sewing and dying so that the production process runs more efficiently. 

- It will also fund the development of new designs, research exciting new sustainable fabrics and continue to improve the ethical practices of the business.
