Subscription Boxes Incoming!

We are launching a new subscription box just in time for Christmas. 


Subscribe to give yourself a nice little surprise every month, where you will receive a curated box full of ethically made Art and Merch. You can also choose to give a subscription to someone as a gift, bringing them a little bit of joy and happiness every month.

Whether you want to discover some pretty things for your home and wardrobe or looking for a way to support artists at a time when the government has decided that their contribution is invalid, this is a great way to do it. (Fuck the Tories) 

You will discover 6 new artists in every box, each designing one piece. Every artist is paid an equal share of 50% of the profits.

The first box, launching just in time for the holidays, is designed by members of Wild & Kind Studios’, which is our low cost creative space based in Bridgeton, Glasgow. We came up with the idea of running a subscription box as a way to support creatives directly, so we have opened applications for contributing to future boxes where will prioritise offering opportunities to artists from marginalised communities.

Wild & Kind boxes will be available as a monthly subscription or can be purchased in blocks of 3, 6 or 12 months. The more boxes you buy in a block the more money you save.  

This would be a fantastic gift for an art lover this Christmas to spread the joy a bit further than just the one day.

 

What’s in the box? 

 

You can choose from 3 different box sizes, which vary between 4 and 6 products. All products are made in-house at Wild & Kind. Each box will have a theme that all artists involved will have created their pieces around. The very first theme is aptly ‘Wild & Kind’. The first months boxes will include.

  • Risograph Print // A Risograph print, which will vary in size each month. This is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to print, and has a unique and distinctive aesthetic loved by many.

  • Embroidered Patch // Sew on embroidered patch made using organic, recycled or second hand fabric whenever possible.

We do our best to make everything as ethical and eco friendly as possible.

Art prints and zines will be printed using a Risograph printer.  This is one of the most eco-friendly kinds of printing. A Risograph printer makes a stencil using a sheet of material made from banana leaf fibres and prints with soy based ink.

Garment prints are done using direct to garment printing which is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to print onto textiles. Unlike a lot of traditional garment printing processes, our DTG printer only uses the exact amount of ink needed per print and produces zero water waste. We also only ever use ethically sourced t-shirts and sweatshirts made from 100% organic or recycled materials.

Embroidery is done in house using Madeira thread, made in the European ‘green’ city of Freiburg, Germany. This is our brand of choice because of the extremely high quality of their thread, as well as their focus on sustainability.

Size inclusivity is important to us, however it is difficult to find suppliers of ethical, size inclusive garments that aren’t just white t-shirts. It’s something we’ve been addressing for a while, and we want to support all of our customers equally. If your perfect fit isn’t listed then please get in touch and we will do everything in our powers to make something for you. 

Most colours of T-shirts and Sweatshirts will be available in sizes XS to 2XL. There are a small number colours across both products that range from size XXS to 5XL. 

Everything will be sent in eco friendly recyclable packaging with free UK postage.

 We will always throw some extra surprise goodies in as well.
