Rediscover homemade

Leicester, born and bred

In our family, everyone knows about textiles. I’m Karandeep, founder of CWT. My grandads started making T-shirts here in Leicester in the 60’s. Since then, me and three generations of my entire family, have all ended up in the rag trade too. You could say it’s just in our blood. 

Three generations but just one city, a city that used to clothe the world. We want Leicester’s reputation back, for our community, for our customers and for the future we all want. We’re here to make the best, most sustainable T-shirts and sweats there are, right here on the bricks that Leicester was built on.
