Inspiring Teams & Supporting Dreams


For refugees, sport is much more than a leisure activity. It’s a way to cope and connect in challenging circumstances. That’s why Avery Dennison joined forces with the Klabu Foundation to create a sustainable sports club in Kenya. The Foundation funds new sports facilities, buys equipment and trains local sports managers. Avery Dennison were proud to pitch in, supplying embellishments, hangtags and packaging for the Klabu kit that’s worn by the staff, managers and players.

ATID


Progressive and Intelligent Design Solutions, Without Compromise.



ATID is the creation of Alexander Taylor Studio, a design and innovation consultancy based in London. It is a platform for the studio to present its latest concepts and products; the most progressive and intelligent design solutions, without compromise. Each ATID product is designed in London, then developed and upscaled in collaboration with industry-leading factories, labs and material specialists. The design process is centred around ways in which factory and designer, as well as industry and aesthetic, can collaborate to create new ways of problem-solving. ATID pieces are exclusive and limited in number by their very nature. Whether they are made from leftover material from a partner factory, knitted in a new bio-yarn only available in a limited quantity, handcrafted in collaboration with their partner atelier in Paris or because they are exposing alternative system solutions.
