Tigershark Apparel Ltd, which launched on March 21th , 2014 is an innovative new spin on t-shirt design which combines fashion with education for children aged 3-11. Anna Fairs, an engineer from Hampshire came up with the idea when her son was frustrated he couldn’t find any t-shirts he liked.
Fed up with all of the superhero and tv-character designs that flooded the boys fashion market, Anna decided to create Charlie his own range of t-shirts, drawing on images linked to what he was learning at school. After some research and conversations with other mothers Anna realised that there was a gap in the market for her idea, and so the journey began!
Tigershark launched initially with six different designs. They include images of the solar system, a Minotaur, a centipede, a stag beetle, a spitfire and dinosaurs. All the t-shirts are designed and printed in the UK from 100% cotton and are excellent quality, ring spun and pre-shrunk. They come in sizes 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-11 and are priced at £15.00.
Speaking ahead of the launch Anna said,
“I can’t believe that a moment of fun and imaginative play with my son Charlie has resulted in me launching a brand new company! It’s been a challenge to get to grips with everything that comes with starting up a new business, but I’ve had some great support and I’m thrilled with the end product. I hope that people will love the t-shirts just as much as Charlie does!”
