Discovery. Craftsmanship. Sustainability.
Established In London, Working With Artisans Across Europe
Thomas Clipper was founded in London in 2014 by two friends, Antonio and Matt. We wanted to bring men a better morning through products that encourage discovery, demonstrate exceptional craftsmanship and always maintain the highest standards of sustainability. We were joined by creative team Stu and Kate in 2019.
A Small Team Making Big Waves
Thomas Clipper was founded on three core values. Discovery, craftsmanship and sustainability. Our range of men's colognes, leather goods and bathroom essentials has been featured worldwide.
We believe constant exploration is the key to a life well lived. Our colognes have a rich story in the history of fragrance that we share on our blog, and you're encouraged to blend them together, creating your own new scents. Our razors require some practice to perfect your technique and achieve the perfect shave. Our leather goods feature coordinates of the Italian town where they're made, by hand, from vegetable tanned leather. Nothing we create is ordinary: we specialise in the unique and the considered.
There is a story about a watchmaker who always left his signature on the inside of the mechanism, never to be seen again. Our artisans are like that watch maker. Their difference in their work is often invisible, at least to the untrained eye. But as the leather in your bag ages with grace, or the fragrances you wear continue to stand the test of time, the signature of each expert craftsman comes to the fore.
Antonio and Matt founded the business with the understanding that there was no point creating a business if it didn't push the world in the right direction. Our products are the opposite of the usual consumer story. They're made with care to be enjoyed as part of a slow, considered life.
On top of that, they're made with materials that take the environment seriously. We use 100% organic alcohol in our fragrances, which are vegan friendly (as our our shaving brushes). We do use leather when we know it's in a product that will last a lifetime, because the waste story of leather is often better than a synthetic alternative. But even then, we make sure the leather is vegetable tanned: this is unusual today, most leather is tanned with chemicals that pollute. Not ours. The only byproducts from the tannery we work with are water and fertiliser.
If this sounds like the sort of story that you want to be a part of, we'd love for you to join us. We share our product creation journeys on social media - you can follow us on Instagram and like our page on Facebook. And you can subscribe to our periodic newsletter below.
