Our Story

Ushiwear the brand was born from a love of screen printing, a passion for design and a zest for life! Ushiwear was created in the UK in 2008 from a desire to build a truly British brand. We are inspired by our rich culture and iconic designs both past and present. Our Britishness is not just a gimmick, to be true to our ethos we strive to keep all of our business requirements sourced from within the UK.
Ushi means Ox and the logo is based on an ancient Shamans’ headdress which is over 200 years old.
The headdress when worn by the Shaman was believed to have promoted strength, vitality and a zest for life within the shamans people. This ethos is very important to the Ushi brand as the clothing is created for people who just love to live in it!

What we do

Ushiwear thrives off being British. We work with a top quality British fabric manufacturer and have a small team of creatives to produce a limited number of high quality garments. We purposely print smaller quantities of each design in order to keep our clothing unique and desirable. Each item of clothing, labelling and bags are hand printed in our own studio in Yorkshire to give it that special hand made touch. The key driving force behind Ushiwear is a passion to create something different. To break away from the norm and to be able to produce products that are desirable, fun and individual.
