Why we make Custom Ugly Sweaters

Why we make Custom Ugly Sweaters

September 30, 2016

We've been in the christmas sweater business for years and love every little detail about the sweaters! We really love how creative people are and when people come up with truly original designs. They are really fun to make! 

We began making ugly sweaters because we couldn't find any we liked. There was none available when we were selling them. High street brands and retailers caught on to the trend afterwards and began to mass produce the ugly sweaters. While it was great that there were sweaters everywhere, some of the designs were just direct copies and it was hard to find anyone who was doing something different and making sweaters that we'd actually like to buy. So we continued making them. We started to see a change happen. We were approached by cool companies and clients who loved our sweaters and asked if we could make theirs. As it happened, people and companies really did have cool designs-the sweaters just weren't being made. So we agreed immediately and work with brands that we love and designs that look awesome.

There are so many different sweater types in the market and we really have seen the cheapest of the cheap-literally sweaters that will fall apart after one wash. We didn't want that. We wanted the sweaters we make for others to be the quality that we would make our own and the quality that we'd buy. We use the best material that will work with complicated designs and that will wash well. They are premium quality and super soft and the detail is in the workmanship. That's something we will never change.

If you have any ideas or any queries please just contact us at info@roodyoriginals.com . We love to make sweaters and have been making them for years so we know what will work and what won't work so please just ask us if you're unsure!
