Welcome To The Latest New Brand Alert
A brand hailing from Yorkshire, England.
A brand with the unusual name of Lupus Arctos Apparel.I caught up with the owner of Lupus Artos Apparel to find out more about this new apparel brand.
Why did you start Lupus Arctos Apparel?
Lupus Arctos was created as a way of filtering our creative ideas into a project which other people could recognise, support and enjoy; we wanted to provide a clothing range that is unique and different from the clothes found on the high street but at an affordable price so that everyone can be part of it.
When did you start?
2nd March 2013
Where are you based?
Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England
Where did you get name Lupus Arctos Apparel?
The wolf, an animal that both of us favour, is renowned for travelling and hunting in packs. This is symbolic of the teamwork and effort that we put into each and every design and product that we made.
As a result of our brand being partly based around an archaic theme, we decided to use the Latin term for ‘Arctic Wolf’ for our brand name as it seemed fitting with the designs and styles we had in mind.
What else can you tell me about Lupus Arctos Apparel?
By combining a range of themes including modern and archaic, we provide unique, top quality tees made by hand to provide an individual yet appealing style. Our products are inspired and evolved from Grunge, Indie and Skater culture and provide a reasonably priced outcome that anyone can pull off!
Along with the premade designs we can create a completely personalised outcome for a small fee, potentially enabling the products to be that little bit more personal to our customers.
What printing process do you use when printing a tee and the brand of tee you use?
We create each product individually using a handmade stencil and acid wash. We ensure that the outline of the design is crisp to create a more attractive outcome.
The varying strengths of the acid wash provide a vast tonal range and we use a variety of techniques to create additional visual texture and pattern, providing a more interesting outcome.
We are currently using Premium heavy weight ‘Fruit of the Loom’ tees but will soon be upgrading to ‘Gildan’ when we have the funds to do so.
What can someone expect when ordering a product from you?
Any customer is guaranteed a one-of-a-kind product made by hand with care and consideration.
Each and every design will be clear and prominent on the product. The customer will receive a friendly service which provides a wide variety of means to contact us so there is never a time we won’t be in touch!
We will do our utmost to ensure that each and every one of our customers are 100% happy with their products and if for some reason they unsatisfied, we will do what we can do amend that.
What plans have you got for the future?
We have intentions to further stylise the products using unique cuts and adding decor to increase appeal for the items.
We also have the upcoming summer collection which will feature colour stencil dyes and potentially incorporate printing into the outcomes.
