HOW IT STARTED
The Level Collective was started by one ordinary young lad; Mark Musgrave.
“I’ve always been passionate about adventure, creative design, and making a positive difference in the world. My trip to Romania volunteering with a charity was a real inspiration, coupled with my frustration with faceless brands churning out generic, high margin, poor quality, unethical apparel. I wanted to start something different.
In January 2014, The Level Collective was born – without a penny in the bank and not a soul who had heard of it. Since then, we have grown organically through a bold community of like-minded folk who share a passion for adventure, design and change”
WHO WE ARE
The Level Collective is a community who stand for…
We believe that travel and adventure are good for the soul. We love the outrageous beauty of the wild mountain, the forest and the ocean. The new sights, sounds, scents and tastes. The people you meet; those campfire conversations, the shared experiences, the making of life-enriching memories. We believe in simple living.
We love independent design and collaborate with artists from across the world to create our adventure inspired designs from rough pencil sketch. We hand screenprint our designs in Sheffield, UK in small batches using water-based inks.
We practice sustainable business that is fair …or ‘level’ for everyone involved; from our makers and designers to our customers. Our t-shirts, sweaters and hoodies are ethically-made in India using quality, organic fabrics where possible. Our beanie hats are handmade in Romania and help to bring sustainable change to poor communities.
We’re in it for the long run. We don’t have shareholders or investors to please. We’re not after a fast buck or for creating a popular lifestyle brand for the sake of it. We are creatives truly passionate about living an adventurous life. We are The Level Collective
