Hello!! I’m Katie and I’m the founder of Harley & Sal.
I’m a jumper loving, hoodie obsessed, slogan-tee wearing Mum of 2 boys and wife to my fabulous husband Frazer.
Growing up and to this day I’ve been lucky enough to spend most of my Summers in a beautiful part of North Wales, spending long days on the beach with family and friends digging sandcastles and enjoying long sunset BBQ’s. Due to the renowned Welsh climate its always essential to dress for all weathers, so soft snuggly hoodies and warm cosy jumpers were always the natural choice. Its probably the reason why I have a such an obsession to find the perfect hoodie.
Like many small business owners Harley & Sal was born out of my own personal passion to make what I love available to others. The name Harley & Sal is named after 3 of my important loves; my two boys Charlie & Harry, and my Mum Sally who I was devastated to lose to cancer nearly five years ago and who was always such an inspiration and support to me. In fact those Summer beachdays have always centred around my boys and my Mum and so it seemed fitting to name my new little business venture after them.
In an increasingly challenging world, my family’s values centre around oodles of fun, kindness, good manners, love and loyalty, and those values underpin everything we do at Harley & Sal. From our lovely little Harley & Sal studio in Yorkshire we design and hand print all our garments, in the hope that we can bring a little bit of love, fun and sunshine to your wardrobe too.
I really hope you find what you are looking for, and you enjoy our products as much as we do ourselves but please let us know if there’s something missing from our offering that you would like to see in the future!
A little note on sustainability.
The value of kindness extends beyond how we treat each other too, and we have spent an extraordinary amount of time ensuring we take responsibility for the impact our brand and our products have on the environment and the world.
This is why you will immediately feel and experience the amazing quality of the materials we have selected. We choose suppliers who have WRAP certified production which means they promote safe, lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing. We also have suppliers that are GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard), GRS certified (Global Recycle Standard), a PETA Approved Vegan company, OEKA Tex (safety standard of harmful substances) and OC3 certified (Organic Content Standard).
We use recycled and recyclable cardboard packaging. As with everything I’m sure we could do better and its something we will continue to work on.
Believe you can and you’re halfway there
