It was 1988. Two young British guys were skiing in the French Alps, had an idea, and started to talk. What if they started selling tees and sweats, and made enough money to carry on skiing? And what if it was possible to live their dreams by setting up a small business with a big heart?
Their favourite ski run was ‘La Face’ in Val D’Isere, a ‘black-run’ which inspired our company name FatFace. Over 25 years later we still love adventure, love life and have the same strong values. We still make clothes that reflect the happy, healthy and active lifestyles of our customers.
Our clothes are proudly designed by our team in England with a focus on modern styling and ‘hero’ pieces for your wardrobe. We care about the detail and we create clothes that are built to last, at prices you can trust. We wash them again and again, until they have that relaxed ‘old favourite’ feel, from new. We believe our clothes are washed in happiness, before they find their way to you. It’s what makes FatFace different. We like that and we hope you do too.
FatFace... Washed in Happiness
