The popular clothing company behind the likes of a Greggs’ festive bake Christmas jumper and an Ed Sheeran favourite has now unveiled its new range which includes a scarf design made famous by David Bowie.
Online retailer notjust is known for its quirky range of festive jumpers and – eagerly awaited each year – they never disappoint, with their unique subjects and striking designs. Past subjects have included a climate-conscious David Attenbrr! woolly – which Ed Sheeran was pictured wearing – and a tribute last year to the late Queen, with a Thank You for Everything Ma’am message.
This year’s addition of a very special new scarf builds upon one of last year’s newcomers – The Snowman jumper which honoured author and illustrator Raymond Briggs who died in 2022 – and is set to strike a chord with David Bowie fans. The late music star was pictured wearing The Snowman scarf in an eighties video to introduce the first broadcast of the famous animation in America.
The filmed segment showed Bowie digging out the scarf in his attic, saying it had been given to him by a real snowman, and last year the scarf was back in the news when the star’s son found the original.
Now it has inspired the new addition to notjust’s Christmas range which is available to the public to buy. It forms part of an official collection which also includes a jumper and a blanket featuring the scene of The Snowman and boy flying over snowy rooftops – and already people are “really loving the scarf”, says notjust.
The company is a social enterprise which donates to charity 50% of profits from every jumper sold and, since it started out in 2017, it has raised more than £85,000. The scarf will be helping boost funds too so anyone splashing out on its £19.99 cost will be helping a good cause at the same time.
A second official Christmas collection has been announced too, this time with Unilever, which no doubt will appeal to any fans of ‘love it or hate it’ Marmite; Pot Noodle or Colman’s mustard. Each of the three available jumpers features an image of the product, its trademark colour and slogan.
For instance, the Colman’s one shows the brand name in red on a bright yellow background. The Marmite jumper has the words ‘spread the Christmas cheer’ across the back amid scenes of Marmite jars and toast, while the Pot Noodle knit includes 3D noodles bursting out of a pot while ‘all I want for Christmas is noods’ emblazoned across its back.
There are Pot Noodle and Colman’s scarves and beanies to be had too. The new festive range is on sale online, alongside other former favourites which include the Greggs theme, Peaky Blinders and Nordic styles.
All are quality knits, ethically produced and made in the UK. A spokesperson said: “Using the latest hi-tech knitting machines, it takes 45 minutes to weave the front and back sections; the sleeves are cut by hand and the collar attached by carefully feeding each jumper into a separate machine – all done by hand by expert craftspeople.
“These jumpers are designed to last and to be worn year after year.” See the notjustclothing website for the full range, with prices starting from £9.99.
