Ever noticed how roller derby just seems to attract the best ones? Creative, ethical, practical; the derby demographic is all kinds of awesome - the sort of people my mum would approvingly refer to as "do-ers". Couple that with the passion behind the sport's DIY ethos and it's immediately clear why it's one of the fastest growing amateur sports in the world. Derby people make stuff happen.
With all that in mind, it should come as no surprise that when Bath Roller Derby decided the time had come for their very first league merchandise order, we didn't have to outsource a thing! We're very lucky to count an uber-talented and eco-friendly screen printer amongst our ranks in the form of Hannah Conway, aka Conway The Barbarian.
One half of I DRESS MYSELF, Hannah and partner Pete have been busily putting together our order and we're thrilled to announce that it's almost ready to put on sale! We'll be selling two kinds of shirt through this blog (a lovely pale blue and our trademark sunny yellow!) as well as rolling out a mixed bag of various colours and cuts at our bouts, fundraisers and socials.
Lots of shirts are all made from fairly traded, organic cotton and they are all printed with water-friendly inks. So you can save all your chaos and destruction for the track ;)
All funds raised from the sales will go straight back to supporting the league, helping us progress and develop as a team. Watch this space!
