FatFace x Folk: The story behind the collaboration

March 11, 2019

Have you seen our exclusive collaboration with leading clothing brand Folk? Combining almost fifty years of menswear experience and a shared passion to create exceptional clothes, together we’ve created a range of easy-to-wear, timeless pieces with a unique, contemporary style.

So who are Folk? From humble beginnings using stock fabrics and buttons found in thrift stores, today Folk is an established British clothing brand who design and craft simple, quality clothes. Their contemporary style doesn't follow trends; instead it focuses on timeless pieces made using unique fabrics, featuring special touches and exceptional attention to detail.

The FatFace x Folk collaboration came about when Folk founder Cathal Mcateer was introduced to FatFace Design Director, Emma. We caught up with Cathal to find out more…

“I got a call, Emma and I met and it was simple from there. There are many similarities between Folk and FatFace, both in our design process and actually how we view the world...”

“We’re dressing real people to go out there and live every day in clothes that are made to be worn well and are not just for the moment.”

Thanks to Cathal’s knowledge and passion, so much love and care goes into Folk’s clothes. You’ll find lots of special touches in the FatFace x Folk Range such as signature pointelle stitch detailing and Italian corozo nut buttons that are 100% natural and sustainable.

Cathal also told us about the story behind the hand drawn atom print, a design that you’ll see throughout the range - plus loads more interesting facts about Folk.

But for that, you’ll have to watch the video…
