Exactly 1 year ago we launched our Glower site and web shop as we set out to establish a clothing brand that celebrates the good times spent outdoors sharing your passion for cycling, mountain biking, snowboarding and music with like-minded people. With Glower our motivation is still to bring those moments to life with our hand printed designs that tell stories of your great memories and achievements.
"Glower now carries a variety of 50 different garments showcasing a range of 11 unique designs"
The past year has helped us grow, connect with great individuals, learn new things, be part of great experiences and enjoy what we do. Sure, setting up your own business from scratch is a big challenge that we still plough our way through every day.
But we believe Glower is becoming more and more successful in bringing enthusiastic individuals together and inspiring them to go out there and make the most of it. No adventure or experience is too small for us, just ‘Think Outside’.
What keeps us going is the excitement of new adventures, the feedback from our customers and loyal followers, the thrill of seeing a freshly printed design appear once we lift the screen and most of all the great places and faces Glower introduces us to.
"Our motivation is to bring those moments to life with our hand printed designs that tell stories of your great memories and achievements"
A year in, Glower now carries a variety of 50 different garments showcasing a range of 11 unique designs, with more in the making. In addition we’ve created and printed 7 bespoke designs, tailored to the personality and style of the clubs and teams that approached us.
In the coming year we will keep creating new designs inspired by the outdoors, sports and the soundtrack that accompanies these adventures. We’ve also just set up a Facebook Group called ‘Glower ETC (Escape The Chaos)’ where we bring people together to share, organise and be part of outdoor adventures. Go check it out!
Now enjoy browsing through the highlights of our 1st year.
