Flood Clothing Co. is me, Mike, I'm an ethical screen printer and print designer working from a studio just a stones throw from Central Manchester.
I design and sell my own creations as well as work with businesses, artists and anyone in between to help them to create high quality, low impact clothing and accessories.
Every design that I produce is screen printed by hand. This method allows me to carefully monitor both the quality of production and the impact it has on my surroundings.
I believe that all negative effects to anything or anyone should be kept to an absolute minimum.
I only use water based inks in my studio as they’re much less harmful than PVC based alternatives, plus, they also give a much better finish to the final print. I only use bio-degradable detergents when cleaning up too.
I screen print all my own designs onto Earth Positive® apparel manufactured by Continental®. Everything is made from 100% Organic Cotton. The decision to use Continental® T-shirts wasn’t just for the high quality of their shirts, however; all their Earth Positive® range is manufactured using renewable energy and is certified as Climate Neutral. Continental® also runs an active social responsibility programme and is a member of the Fair Wear foundation that regularly monitors their commitment to the welfare of their employees.
