Welsh clothing brand howies was bought by Timberland back in 2006 which led some people to claim they’d sold out but they never strayed from their ethical production roots.
Timberland was then bought by VF Corporation (Vans, The North Face, Jansport etc) in 2011 and howies become a very small part of a very very big company, today they have announced that they have bought their company back from the giant.
It’s great that they played with the big boys and managed to get out alive, go howies! They have always produced great clothing for riding and loads of nice cycling related tees too. Check out their sale and know that your money is going to an independent, once again.
