Who we are

A-COLD-WALL* is the material study of social architecture. Through socially conscious fabric innovation, ACW* seeks to optimize human performance and, by the same stroke, comment on the collective experience. Launched in 2015 by Samuel Ross as a response to the British social climate, ACW* instigates a cultural conversation that celebrates the energy of youth across a range of mediums. Ostensibly a creator of clothing and product, ACW* utilizes multitudinous other disciplines to inhabit the role of curator.
