BIG

We are howies, a small active clothing company
based in West Wales.

We make men’s and women’s clothing for the sports
we love – biking, running and the outdoors, as well as for our day to day lives.

We believe in a thing called quality. We believe that making a product which lasts longer is better for the environment.

And we believe in making our stuff in a low impact way. So our t-shirts, sweatshirts and jeans are made from organic cotton and no silly stuff.

After all, that just seems like common sense to us. We hate having our picture taken, so we did these self portraits instead.
