About Charlie

I'm currently director of Offset Warehouse, the first ethical textile business of its kind.

Having graduated with a Masters in Menswear Design from the Royal College of Art, I put my passion for menswear design and consulting to one side, to focus on solving one of the design industry's biggest problems.

Highlights of my design career include presenting my designs and concepts to some of the biggest companies in the industry including Zandra Rhodes, Umbro, Albini, Thierry Mugler and Brioni. And also being a semi-finalist and award winner for my graduate collection, which took me on a global adventure from Italy to New Zealand.

Striving to incorporate ethically sourced textiles during my design career was such an obstacle, I took on the challenge to solve the problem myself and Offset Warehouse was born. Through Offset Warehouse, we provide textiles and haberdashery that are environmentally and socially beneficial, with minimums of one metre and the ability to come back and purchase wholesale quantities at discounted prices.
