About Us: Born Free Printworks – Where Nature Sparks Adventure

Welcome to Born Free Printworks, your passport to a world where adventure and the great outdoors are at the heart of everything we do. Founded in 2020 by our intrepid spirit, Pete Winterbottom, our journey has been nothing short of a wild, exhilarating ride through the wonders of nature.

Childhood Memories of the Great Outdoors

Pete’s love affair with the outdoors began in his early years, guided by his dad, John, and a merry band of like-minded friends. Picture kayaking down roaring rivers, scaling towering cliffs, hiking through pristine forests, and carving through powdery slopes. These adventures painted the canvas of Pete’s formative years. Family vacations by the sea, national park explorations, and winter wonderlands in the Alps added brushstrokes to a masterpiece of nature’s beauty etched in his heart.

A Lifetime of Adventure

As Pete grew older, he didn’t just treasure these memories; he embodied them. Becoming an instructor, he shared his expertise and unwavering passion for skiing, climbing, kayaking, and archery with others. In his downtime, he found solace in the rhythmic cadence of ocean waves, riding them with boundless enthusiasm. Nature, adventure, and the thrill of outdoor sports became part of Pete’s DNA.

Born Free Printworks: Born in Creativity, Raised in Passion

Born Free Printworks wasn’t born in a stuffy corporate office; it came to life in the heart of creativityโ€”the hallowed grounds of Pete’s kitchen. In 2020, armed with nothing but passion and a few lino-printing tools, we embarked on a journey to create something truly unique. Our designs, crafted with love, found their canvas directly on our clothing, each piece a work of art. Even then, we embraced our commitment to the environment, using organic cotton tees and eco-friendly cardboard boxes for shipping.

Trials and Triumphs

As any adventurer knows, the road to success is often paved with challenges. Printing directly onto fabric with lino-printing was no walk in the park, and fulfilling orders in a timely manner proved to be an adventure in itself. Balancing work, life, and business became a daring feat. In 2021, we took a step back, but Pete continued his lino-printing craft. Today, those original prints, along with new digitized designs, adorn our apparel as a testament to our journey.

A Rebirth and Steady Growth

The summer of 2023 marked our triumphant return. Born Free Printworks emerged stronger, wiser, and more determined than ever before. With a renewed spirit, we are steadily expanding our product catalogue while staying true to our core values. Our commitment to eco-friendliness remains unwavering, and our designs continue to echo the untamed spirit of nature and adventure.

Quality Materials: Where Comfort Meets Durability

At Born Free Printworks, quality is our North Star. We’re passionate about delivering garments that endure, just like your adventures in the great outdoors. That’s why we meticulously source high-quality materials to ensure every piece of clothing we offer is not only a canvas for our art but also something we are genuinely proud of.

Our commitment to quality extends beyond our designs. We start with the finest organic cotton and recycled polyester as the canvas for our nature-inspired creations. This ensures not only exceptional comfort but also reflects our dedication to being a planet-conscious brand.
