Back in 2015 we had an idea in the pub – was it possible to support small UK manufacturers with production sized orders, and get people wearing and using stuff made here?
We told everyone we were going to do it. So we had to!
We started with trousers – We found out that Hebden Bridge, where we lived, used to be known as Trousertown, because it made over 20,000 pairs of trousers a week. That’s a million pairs a year. At the time, we didn’t know much about trousers, but we had been wearing them all our lives, which had to count for something.
HebTroCo was launched on Kickstarter, a crowd funding website, at the end of January 2016, with the aim to sell an initial batch of 176 pairs of trousers. We sold that batch in five hours, so we quit our jobs, and committed to HebTroCo full time.
It seems to be working. We’ve added denim jeans, shirts, socks, hats and other paraphernalia working with makers, mills and factories right here in the UK.
Everything we do is Made Right Here and exclusive to us.
Our garments have been tested and perfected by us. We wear them every day. We want you to be able to rely on and be completely satisfied with everything you order from us at HebTroCo. That’s why all our clothing is guaranteed for life for manufacturing defects. If at any point your HebTroCo products become damaged, get them back to us and we’ll arrange for the item to be repaired or replaced or – if the item is no longer available – we will send goods of the same value. The guarantee doesn’t include damage that may have been caused by misuse, unusual wear and tear, accident or alteration, but we’ll always try and help you out whatever you’ve done.
We give clear washing instructions in our garments. Please pay attention to them all!
