This week sees the start of the 2019 Tour of Colombia and it seems even Chris Froome has fallen for the charms of the cycling-mad South American country. Milltag first started supplying kit to our agents, Velo Colombia in early 2017, and since then the partnership has grown into a significant business with Milltag now well represented both in cycling shops of Bogotá but also in an increasing number of teams turning to Milltag to provide this season’s race kit.
We are proud to have created a jersey that celebrates Joy Division's classic album Unknown Pleasures. Released in 1979 by Factory Records, the album artwork by legendary designer Peter Saville features a black and white visualisation of pulsar data.
It's been a significant year in the life of Milltag and I'd like to thank all our customers, partners and staff for making it happen. We started the year helping Brew Dog get their cycling club off the ground followed by a trip to Oman where we had the pleasure of seeing some of our heroes including Cav and Greg van Avermaet pull on our jerseys in the Tour of Oman.
In 1976, London-based industrial designer Andrew Ainsworth was asked to create costumes for a new sci-fi movie filming at Elstree Studios. Andrew’s Original Stormtrooper has now become a genuine cultural icon across the world.
