Hopeful Traders

Founded by: Charlie Wright

Hopeful Traders is a clothing brand that collaborates with artists affected by homelessness and mental illness. By giving these people a platform to share their designs, we not only give them an opportunity to monetise their creativity but also give a voice to people marginalised by our society. Sales of our collections raise money for the individual artists as well as community projects and charities chosen by them.

All our apparel is responsibly produced by Fair Wear Foundation certified manufacturers. This means that they come from factories with safe and happy working conditions, where people are paid appropriately. Our printing and other customisations are done by our partners, 3rd Rail Clothing. 3rd Rail are an artists collective passionate about quality artwork and clothing production, based in London.
