We don’t create clothes,

We create pieces.

We don’t create collections.

We create concepts.

Tire Calligraphy started as and still represents the passion for cycling, but gradually reinvented itself into a wider interest and never-ending thirst for the next challenge, being physical as in running and climbing, being social with collaborations that match our vision of aesthetics and functionality, with every individual in mind.

Our most important fuel, is the passion to build, be a part of and provide support for the community, the only way we can, striving to create top quality products for everyday situations, offering solutions built on a DIY principle, which we believe is the most honest and humble one.

Calligraphy for us represents making a mark, leaving a track. All of the individuals we choose to co-create with are making one themselves. These people are taking matters in their own hands and are changing the game for the better, creating their own products and solutions, others and themselves are proud to use.

The term Tire Calligraphy was coined by one of the initial co-founders, Matej Pašalić, referring to the skid marks when ridding fixed gear. The full phrase was and still is Tire Calligraphy, Mallet & Ball, which represents the progression of our interests, ridding fixed gear and playing bike polo.

Our Offerings, as we like to call our collections, are small conceptual palettes of well thought of pieces that all are presented to be worn in multiple ways; being neutral gender and also envisioned to be worn in more ways than one (or two). And with that, act as the "new evergreens" as we like to call them. Each item is "time + trend resistant" as it fits with the cut and the colour with a new or an older item, respectively. In this way we tend to be mindful and sustainable, in the creation process and also the production and delivery of the items created. That said, talking about the delivery in its own right, we actually always deliver the in-city-orders ourselves, in this way fighting the carbon footprint and more important, getting to know our customers.

All our items are proudly created in Zagreb, Croatia from local craftswomen and men. Fair payed. No child labour. No nonsense. No bullshit. Period.
