What’s it all about?
Hailing from the North East shores of the UK, Black Spell is a project formed and ran by a team of creatives who set about to bring society together through action sports and the arts. Equipped with a solid vision and a dedicated passion for skateboarding, surfing, clothing, art, and music, two friends came together to forge a lifestyle brand that would design and distribute products catering for like minded individuals; thus, Black Spell was born. Conjuring a diverse range of imagery, Black Spell infuses the realms of the new and old and demonstrates inspiration with a variation of styles and cultures including: skateboarding, surfing, the occult, psychedelic, retro and macabre to name but a few. With this dark yet bizarre concoction, of which alludes to it’s iconic nuances, Black Spell takes a contemporary, alternative, and somewhat distinctive approach to the demands of the modern-day fashion industry, an industry that is saturated, yet persistently thriving.
When it comes to product quality and comfort, Black Spell cuts no corners. Our designs are predominantly screen printed onto premium fabrics using water based inks, which is not only environmentally friendly, but gives our garments a softer/lighter feel whilst retaining durability. We believe social and environmental responsibility has never been up for debate. By utilising a traditional analogue pen and ink technique, every design we offer has been carefully hand crafted from sketch to vector. Rather than the more common, modern-day, digital drawing style of graphics, this technique allows delivery for a more particular aesthetic and, ultimately, one that is iconic to the brand’s overall presence.
At Black Spell, we don’t just see ourselves as a clothing brand, but more of a family, a tribe, a cult. Once you purchase a product from us, wear our clothes, or even follow us on social media platforms, you have then become a part of that cult and we endeavour to treat you as a valued member. Our aim is to cut the shackles of mundanity, cross a bridge into the unknown and we invite you to join us. A new dawn begins and we are its creators. For we are The Psychedelic Church, The Ministry of Darkness, The Unholy Sabbath.
We are Black Spell and we hope you enjoy our work.
