Here’s how it all began
Two brothers have launched a range of sustainable clothing and accessories, all hand-crafted from sustainably sourced bamboo after learning about its significant benefits, whilst studying at university.
With an increasing global awareness for sustainability and passion for quality, 24 year-old Oliver and 21 year-old James Slacke set-up Swole Panda after identifying a gap in the market for a British high-end clothing and accessories brand that combines style with sustainability.
Oliver says, “Whilst I was studying Geography at university, learning about sustainable development and the impact humans are having on the natural environment, it led me to explore alternative resources, which can help to minimise this impact, without drastically changing our everyday lives. I came across bamboo and with its signficiant benefits, both environmentally and as a fabric use, it made complete sense to use this brilliant resource for our clothing and accessories range”.
After leaving university, Oliver and James formalised the business together and started picking and packing product from Oliver’s bedroom. From designing and producing their first pair of bamboo sunglasses, Swole Panda has now grown onto encompass a range of sunglasses, socks, watches and scarves, all hand-crafted from sustainably sourced Moso Bamboo; a highly sustainable plant and one of the fastest growing natural resources.
As well as having a positive impact on the environment, the use of bamboo has numerous benefits across the Swole Panda range, including a super-soft feel for their scarves that rivals cashmere, super lightweight feel for the sunglasses and anti-bacterial and moisture wicking properties for the sock collection.
James says, “We’re so pleased with how Swole Panda has progressed in just a few years. We started the business with just one pair of bamboo sunglasses and now have a full range of clothing and accessories made from one of the most sustainable natural resources the planet has provided us with. Sustainable fashion is a big talking point right now and we’re proud to be part of this trend in terms of helping to pioneer a more sustainable future”.
