Three Stroke Production

Three Stroke Productions started in 1997 in South East London: a small warehouse, three friends with the same dream and great desire to create something special.
Most of the garments since then have been made by small independent clothing firms in Italy. Firms that share the same outlook and mindset, as at TSP they believe that one of the main aspects required to succeed in this business is to be part of a trustworthy chain based on values of quality and respect!
The (sub) cultural and the combat sports background of the main men behind the label has always played a big role in Three Stroke Productions.
The roots of the early days are endorsed by a contemporary approach made from high quality fabrics and great attention to details. TSP want to keep being an independent label, strong and trustworthy with great relationships with its suppliers and retailers and true to the expectations of the people who buy our garments
TSP like to think that the garments tell a story. With some of them telling Three Stroke Productions own personal story.

Volcom History

Volcom History

Richard Woolcott and Tucker Hall, set off on a snowboard trip that would forever change their lives. Tucker had just been laid off from work but that wouldn’t stop him from attending his routine Tahoe trip to visit Nathan Fletcher and Mark Gabriel. After riding four days of fresh powder, Richard called work with the excuse that they were snowed in and extended his stay. For more than a week, they awoke every morning with two new feet of snow. It was their first real experience riding powder and the new obsession wouldn’t stop there.

Two weeks later Richard quit his job to take some time off and snowboard. He and Tucker had also talked of starting a clothing company during the Tahoe trip but nothing was really finalized. Later that spring, the two came up with the idea of starting a riding company based around the three sports they enjoyed (snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing). With an initial $5,000 from Richard’s dad, they started the process. First came the name, then came the stone and Volcom was born.
