BRIGHT AND BOLD TRADIES

Western Times - - NEWS -

TWO tradies with a pas­sion for bright and bold prints are mak­ing waves at job sites.

Ed Ross and Dan Allen, builders with 15 years com­bined ex­pe­ri­ence, es­tab­lished cloth­ing range Trade­mutt early this year.

Last Thurs­day the two were guest speak­ers at a Young Beef Pro­duc­ers Din­ner in Roma, where they talked about the im­por­tance of speak­ing up about men­tal health, one of the driv­ing forces for start­ing the colour­ful work­wear.

Trade­mutt is a pro­gres­sive so­cial en­ter­prise that cre­ates qual­ity, hard-wear­ing work­wear for hard-work­ing Aus­tralian men and women.

“We were sick of wear­ing the same old bor­ing thing to work so we had this idea of some vi­brant work­wear that was built tough,” Mr Ross said.

Mr Ross and Mr Allen hope their brand will re-shape the im­age of trades­peo­ple, and in do­ing so, help start con­ver­sa­tions about men­tal health in Aus­tralia.

Trade­mutt uses bold and vi­brant prints to make an in­vis­i­ble is­sue im­pos­si­ble to avoid, fa­cil­i­tat­ing con­ver­sa­tions while main­tain­ing a fun and light-hearted ap­proach.

Next month it will re­lease a new range of colours for Christ­mas.
