The Fixative Story

Established in 2018 by then student Fletcher Naisbett-Jones, Fixative is a brand with a unique style. They are known for their graphic t-shirts and other quality made garments that are made to last.

Fletcher was studying a photography degree and dropped out due to mental health issues. After leaving university, he began work as a freelance photographer but struggled to earn enough to get by.

The first ever Fixative product began as a personal project - a one of one t-shirt featuring a 1980's Honda civic photo taken by Fletcher on his OM10 film camera. He soon gained interest in the design from family and friends who wanted to buy the t-shirt. And this is when the Fixative concept was born.

Fletcher started Fixative with the idea that he could help many other aspiring professional artists by selling their work on clothing - which he belived seemed a more feasible way of selling their art.

Now, Fixative has collaborated with mulitple artists of various nationalities, some of which you can read about on the 'Collab Archive' section of our website.

We pay the artists a commission and work closely with them to design every aspect of the products/collections. This can be from the actual design, to the thread colours, garment fit and print or finish method (e.g. screen pritnt & embroidery).

When you buy from Fixative you are not only supporting a small, family run, ethical business; but also helping aspiring creatives take the next step on their dream career path.
