The MaNuKa range offers affordable unisex tee shirts in white or ash grey.
Born in Leith and raised in Dalkeith, I have always had a keen interest in all things Scottish and tartan in particular. Stuart Adamson from Big Country greatly influenced my way of thinking and the idea of putting a contemporary twist on all things Scottish came directly from him. After being diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in 2014, I found myself unable to work in a 'normal' capacity. The DWP deemed me fit for work despite not being able to sit or stand comfortably for more than half an hour at a time and effectively stopped all benefits. Not one to give up easily, I pooled my skills and resources and set about designing and producing great quality cheeky wee tee shirts with a tantalising tartan twist and thus MoNkARoCkS was born!
