Scary Wharf

£ 29.00

Canary Wharf is a large business and shopping development in East London, located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, situated in the London Docklands. Rivalling London's traditional financial centre, The Square Mile - Canary Wharf contains the tallest building in the UK: One Canada Square (also known as the Canary Wharf Tower) at 235.1 m. I see Canary Wharf Tower is a delicately stacked house of cards. Many of the banks and companies based within the Tower itself are built on what now appear to be deeply fragile, fickle and unsustainable financial models. Uncertainty, greed and dishonesty have lead to the financial instability which we are currently experiencing across the developed world. However, when the chips are down, people are often forced to produce some of the most exciting, innovative and successful business ever conceived. The Scary Wharf T-shirt combines two messages... It highlights the negativity and fragility of an economy built on debt, while also delivering a message that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
