Why did I start Kernowfornia?

I was trying to track down an authentic, independent Cornish label with classic designs that had a stylish, vintage vibe but I just couldn't find anything that hit the mark. After a while I thought, why don't I just make my own? So I starting sketching some ideas.

The next thing I know, I'm on crutches and surfing isn't an option for a while, so to stop myself going slowly insane and as a way to stay close to surfing, I got busy designing, art-working and learning about screen printing.

I printed up a tee for my 4 year old son, who rocked up at his pre-school wearing it (the 'Sunspot' design below) and his teacher said "I NEED one of those!" So my 4 year old son sold the first one and that's how Kernowfornia was born. 

We might be a Minnow in a sea of big corporate brands but we're the real-deal. When you buy from us you're buying from the source and supporting an independent, Cornish business. So thank you me ansums!
