The Christmas jumper, like the Brussel sprout is equally adored and loathed by the nation; however we are becoming a generation of ‘iconic fashion’ and ‘retro-guru’s’.
You can almost surely eat too many sprouts at the Christmas dinner table BUT! We can’t get enough of the outlandish, totally bonkers novelty knits and have become obsessed with all things Christmas-esque.
Even though seasonal knitwear has been around nearly as long as St Nic himself, our fondness for such a garment didn’t totally emerge until the 1980’s, becoming popular with TV celebrities and trendy fashionistas alike.
Fast forward a couple of decades and most people in the UK will remember the 2001 film Bridget Jones's Diary, when Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) donned a black roll-neck sweater with a giant reindeer's face, for many of us this was the moment the Christmas jumper revival began.
The Christmas Jumper Company was established in 2007 by husband and wife team from Manchester. Initially the concept started as a practical joke amongst friends, but the craze quickly spread. In 2008 the ‘Crimbofreak’ brand was born and has become a roaring success worldwide.
Now in their 8th year of trading, The Christmas Jumper Company has a vast Crimbofreak following, their christmas jumpers have been seen on celebrities including, Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, they have also collaborated with some big named clients including Nintendo, Sony, Where Wally and Game of Thrones.
