Who doesn't like whisky more than the people making it?
Well, some of the workers liked it so much they wanted to take it home with them. The tax man didn't like that, so the workers had to get crafty.
This is where the 'Dipping Dog' comes in! Made of copper piping with a chain hooked on and a cork stopper. The workers were able to drop the 'Dog' into the barrels and scoop out a measure which they would hide in a secret pocket stitched into their trousers, usually along the belt line.

Urban Pirate aims to create 'wearable art', meaning we want designs that have meaning and a story behind them. We create our t-shirts from start to finish, from design to print.
We use eco-friendly water-based ink to hand screen print our t-shirts in our workshop in Scotland. This gives a soft hand where you virtually can't feel the print.
