Tommy’s Trunks was born in October 2014 and re-named Tom’s Trunks in January 2019.
Tom’s Trunks is inspired by my love of Africa and the discovery of kikoy.
At the age of 13, I decided to bring some Kikoy Trousers to the U.K, creating the Tom’s Trunks brand.
My aim is to build a brand that produces the most comfortable Beach and Bed using sustainable materials.
The TT Classic is our core product, a unisex lounge and Yoga pant. I believe that comfort and style are key elements to happiness along with my passion for the natural world and African design.
Many people ask me, why I do it and the simple answer is because ‘I love it’. I find school challenging due to my dyslexia and Tom’s Trunks provides an ideal escape, lets me explore the rewarding aspects of life and the brand represents all the things I enjoy. Tom’s Trunks donates a percentage of profits to Tom’s Trust a charity providing clinical psychology to children & their families with brain tumours. The charity was set up by the parents of a friend of mine who tragically died from a brain tumour age 9.
My dream for Tom’s Trunks is to spread the “Vibe” and start gifting Tom’s Trunks to young people in hospital who are going through hard times. I know that the trousers are not ‘magic’, but I believe they can do something ‘magical’ by bringing a bit of comfort and happiness to those who are sick. I am passionate about Tom’s Trunks and my customers.
