 Who are you and where are you based?

Masato is a brand based in Paddington, London, that creates T-shirts & sweatshirts that fund our 1st line of women’s & menswear.

 Where do you get your inspiration?

The line which we sell in Bath is based on anything that takes my fancy. Usually quirky drawings of animals such as the popular penguin to a Guitar or a Sax. I try to do different designs at different times and hope they like it. The current T-shirt Steer (above) comes from a steer skull, which I tried to make it look not so gruesome.

What is your link to Bath?
We had a boutique in Milsom Place before as part of a company called British Designers & happy to say we have retained those customers.

We will have new T-shirt lines at £25 clearance sweatshirts at £25 & clearance T-shirts at £15.
