At Good Joe we love and live art and believe it shouldn’t be reserved for hanging on walls, or kept in galleries. We’re putting it on our shirts so you can literally keep it close to your heart and bring a bit of interest to the lives of others when you wear them.
We’re more than chuffed to introduce you to our very first #WearArt collection. In collaboration with Matt Loughlin ( the real Matt Loughlin) we’re launching an exclusive trilogy of his designs on our black and white shirts.

MAKE IT BRITISH SEES RISE IN NUMBER OF REQUESTS TO WORK WITH UK MANUFACTURERS
Make it British, the campaign for helping you make it British, is seeing a rise in the number of requests from businesses looking to work with UK manufacturers. This comes as a survey carried out by Make it British reveals 45% of UK textile manufacturers say business is better than last year.
Kate Hills, CEO and founder of Make it British, explains: “We have a wealth of high-end manufacturers in the UK who provide a valuable service to British designers who rely on the skills, flexibility and location of these suppliers when developing their collections for London Fashion Week. We’ve had a rising number of enquiries from people looking for advice on where to find UK manufacturers and how to work with them, so we’ve launched ‘Ask Kate’. It’s a live interactive broadcast with me every Thursday, giving people the opportunity to have their questions answered in real time.We give plenty of essential tips and practical advice for businesses looking to make their products in the UK.”

If generous Brits splashed out just £20 this Christmas on a gift made in Britain it would boost UK manufacturing by £1 billion says Kate Hills, founder of Make it British, who is encouraging people to buy British this Christmas with her #buybritishchristmas campaign.
Kate Hills explains: “We want to encourage people to stop and think for a moment about supporting some of our great British makers this Christmas. There are 52 million adults in the UK. If they all bought just one gift worth £20 that was made in Britain over the festive season it would add £1 billion to the UK economy. This is welcome news in these uncertain times post Brexit.
“What’s more, buying British-made gifts directly from the makers means more pounds going directly into the pockets of UK manufacturers.”
