Declan and Itala started Uncaptive in Summer 2016 with a £200 initial investment and 10 original t-shirt designs, screen printing the garments themselves and selling online and at Vegan Festivals across the UK. Both with backgrounds in Design, and no experience on Business, Marketing or Sustainable Fashion, they’ve learned to run their business on the job through a lot of discipline and passion for their moral and ethical values.
Over 2 years later, Uncaptive now has its own store in central Newcastle, offering over 120 items. They have exhibited at over 150 festivals and markets across the UK, and have shipped to more than 40 countries. They’re currently working towards opening their own clothing manufacture in 2019, and continue making ethical fashion widely accessible.
Declan and Itala are available for talks and lectures at schools, universities, meet-ups and panel discussions.
