We design clothes for the next century, not the next season

In every industry there’s someone building the future, whether it’s technology, architecture, food, cars or space rockets. In clothing it’s us. Founded by twin brothers, designers and athletes Nick and Steve Tidball, we use science and technology to create clothes from the future.

Startups normally begin with two kids in a garage with a dream

But we were two guys in a desert. On a really long run. And that’s where the idea for Vollebak first started – running through the Amazon, Alps and Namib desert. While surviving heatstroke, broken bones, bullet ants, hallucinations, angry snakes, tarantulas, and falling asleep while running, we wondered couldn’t the clothes we were wearing do a bit more to help? What if they could help you sleep, or at least relax? Or light you up at night? Or keep you alive? And while we’re at it, what are we going to be wearing to keep us alive on Mars?
