Provide x Tom Abbiss Smith

One of the best things about Provide is that it opens up opportunities for us to work with artists and designers whose work we love. Our latest collaboration with Tom Abbiss Smith is one we are particularly proud of. Since graduating from Norwich University of the Arts in 2016, Tom's work has gained global recognition, and his client list already includes brands such as Bandcamp, Pinterest and Slowdown Studio. We're honoured to be the latest addition to an impressive list of collaborators, and we're excited to present a capsule collection featuring two original artworks created by Tom.

Provide at Independent Birmingham Festival

Provide at Independent Birmingham Festival

We're excited to be attending the Independent Birmingham Festival at Aston Hall for the first time this weekend. We'll be selling a selection of tees, zines and art objects, including our Independent Birmingham collaborative T-shirt and a new sculpture created by Space_Play. We can't share any pictures of the sculpture yet because it doesn't officially release until next week, but we can say it's a limited edition piece so if you're coming to the Festival, take the opportunity to get your hands on it before anyone else! We're also running a competition across both days of the Festival, in conjunction with...

Provide x Sum Cellar

Provide x Sum Cellar

Sum Cellar is a name you've probably heard a lot recently. Headed up by George Hadley and Brad Price, the Birmingham based party has been gaining a reputation over the last few years as one of the best in the Midlands. Our first meeting was in 2015 when George came across our BHX tees and we found a shared enthusiasm for Birmingham's burgeoning creative scene. Then in 2016, Sum Cellar residents (who now include Bill Cuttin, Werdna, JustJay, Kinny, Jimmy Magic, Sake and Itmek) hosted the opening party for our pop up shop, Best of Brum.  Since then both brands have been vocal...

Provide x Seven 9 Signs

Provide x Seven 9 Signs

Since we first opened up shop in 2012, Provide has been built on relationships. We have nurtured a community of creative talent around the Provide brand, and many of Birmingham's finest artists and craftspeople have become close friends. One of those friends is Jim Kerr, head honcho at Seven9Signs. We first met Jim when we were preparing to open our Custard Factory shop six years ago. Upon learning that he was responsible for some of our favourite 'public art' in the city, we asked him to cover one of the shop's walls in his distinctive graphic posters. It became an instant...
