Designs

All garments are designed by, and the property of BilleBug. The only exceptions may be some up-cycled garments, but this will be made clear where it refers.

The law governing the protection of designs enables the designer to protect the way their article looks and to stop anyone else from manufacturing either the same or a similar looking article. Design protection has two forms:

Registered designs and Unregistered designs

Billebug designs are unregistered.

This right is similar to copyright because it arises automatically and cannot be registered. An unregistered design right will exist where:

There is an original shape or configuration of an article.

The design is not commonplace

An unregistered design lasts for 10 years from the date of first marketing the article in the UK, subject to a maximum of 15 years from creation of the design. Similar to copyright, but as the right cannot be registered.
BilleBug keeps full details of when the design was first recorded in a material form.

Materials used

Menswear – unless otherwise stated, this is made from new fabrics.  The exception is Frankenshirts.  These are designed to make use of vintage and/or upcyled fabrics, so not all fabric will be new.

Women’s wear – This is made from new fabrics.

Exercise wear – This is made from new fabrics.  As BilleBug promotes sustainable and ethical practices, small remainders of fabrics will be used for trims on other garments thereby reducing waste.

Up-cycled garments – Up-cycling refers to the practice of taking something that would otherwise be disposed of, and transforming it into a new product.  BilleBug’s up-cycling processes uses pre-owned and worn garments, remnants of fabric from other production runs and salvaged haberdashery.

BilleBug attempts to purchase all stock from reliable sources and in the best condition possible. Fabrics cannot however, be completely guaranteed to be in perfect condition. Any major wear and tear or defect is stated in the description.
