The Level Collective is an ethical adventure clothing brand based out of Sheffield with customers in over 40 countries across the world.
The Level Collective work with ethical makers and designers from across the world to create adventure-inspired apparel including beanie hats, graphic t-shirts and sweaters.
I started The Level Collective back in January 2014 after returning from my travels volunteering with a charity in Romania who provide practical and sustainable support to Roma-gypsy communities.
I was inspired to create positive change through starting a clothing brand that is fair to everyone involved, and that also reflects my passion for the outdoors.
The team in Romania have trained people in the communities how to hand-crochet our chunky-knit beanie hats which helps to provide sustainable income for families living in truly difficult circumstances.
I collaborate with illustrators, typographers and designers to create our adventure inspired designs from pencil-sketch through to being hand screen printed in Sheffield, using water-based inks onto our ethically-made bamboo / organic cotton blend t-shirts and organic cotton sweaters.
