Glastonbury Festival Begins
Yes today the great Glastonbury festival starts with the first bands due on stage.  We wish we were there (not working but having fun) but it was not meant to be.  We hope all the people who have made it have a cracking time.  For everyone who hasn’t made it to Glastonbury this year we still have loads of great looking funky festival clothing right here on our website so don’t be upset we can still dress you in festival gear.

Thick weave cotton jackets
We have had a new supply of the popular hippy styled thick weave jackets, these ones have a twist though with cotton lining, a front zip and wooden toggles.  These hippy jackets were always very popular when they came without the cotton lining so we predict a big shift in these wonderful items.  We have currently got 7 colours in 3 sizes.  Each jacket is handmade in Nepal.
Thick Weave Cotton Hooded Hippy Jacket with Cotton Lining Red

Male cotton long Hippy Jedi style jacket.
Yes we have been waiting for a long time to bring these jackets to you guys.  Finally the time is here.  I designed these jackets myself inspired by the Jedi robes worn in the Star Wars films.  Naturally they do not look the same but they are long, well made and look great.  Each hippy jacket is made from the same thick weave cotton material our cotton ponchos and some of our jackets are made from.  These nice male hippy cloaks come with cotton lining, a big hood, inside pockets with zips and a look that will stop people in the street.  I have one and will be having more because they are truly awesome.

We have also had a new stock of our striped hippy hooded grandad shirts.  These hooded versions of our best selling grandad shirts are a great addition to any hippy who likes a hood.  Here is the link.

Foo Fighters Cancel Glastonbury and Wembley

We have just found out the rock band Foo Fighters have pulled out of the rest of their European tour due to the fact that front man Dave Grohl broke his leg last week during a performance in Gothenburg.  The incident has been widely reported in the news this week as Dave decided after seeking some minor medical attention from the on scene medics to keep playing on even with a broken leg.  What a legend he is.  Doctors have advised he rests his leg which although a cracking idea does mean hundreds of thousands of fans are now going to miss out on their fantastic live show. We were due to go see the band at Wembley this Friday and many people were hoping to see the band at the Glastonbury festival next weekend, all in all it’s better he rests his leg so he can rock on for many more years but I’m sure there are going to be many disappointed people out there.  Fingers crossed the Wembley dates get moved instead of just cancelled as the Foo Fighters are an amazing live act.  All at Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing wish he gets well soon, manly for our own selfish reasons so we can go see the band.

Summer is in the air (well just about).  The days are longer and the sun is shining (most of the time).  The UK summer festival season is just about to kick off and Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing have some wonderful pieces of hippy clothing to make your festival experience both stylish and fun.  We stock a wide range of warm wool jackets and jumpers for those night time festival camp fires.

We have also extended our Thai range to include some lovely crochet items.  These are made from quality cotton and have a small amount of crochet detail over the but or around the waistband depending on the item. We have dresses, tops/blouses and skirts in this crochet style.

Nepalese Earth Quake Update
We have spoken with our 3 main suppliers to find out how everybody is fairing up. We have been informed that all of our producers have checked in and are alive and well.  Most have seen buildings destroyed and have either lost family or loved ones.  For the time being most people are still afraid to return to their homes due to the continued aftershocks that are rocking the country.  We have heard some bad news regarding one producer as well as his wife and son who were in their home when it collapsed during the earth quake.  Mr Gupta was a well known figure in the Nepalese clothing/gifts export trade and although we never met him we were told he was a good friend to many and well loved.  Our thoughts go out to his friends and family during this sad time.

Nepalese Earth Quake

Our thought go out to the Nepalese people after a devastating earth quake as hit the region killing many people and injuring many others. We are waiting for updates to find out how everybody is over there. When we have an update we will post it here.
Many people in Nepal live in remote regions where aid will find it hard to reach. We have already had reports that people are afraid to return to their homes after watching many building fall.

Washing your Christmas presents
Ok maybe that title sounds a bit weird, most people won’t want to wash their shiny new Xbox or that ipad they have been waiting for however we just wanted you to make sure the people you buy for know how to care for their new garments.  All our hippy clothing in handmade and comes with labels sewn into the clothing that warn the item should only be hand washed in cold water. We also print the same instructions onto our clothing tags.  We will always recommend you hand wash separately and either line dry light items or for heavier items like wool jackets lay over a dryer over the bath to prevent stretching.

Hippy Festival Clothing Online
Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing have been providing great looking brilliant funky colourful hippy festival clothing since 2010.  We started as a small eBay business but soon grew to be able to move to our own brightly coloured fun website.  We now offer hundreds of affordable festival fashion hippy style clothing for both men and women.  We are proud of the fact that we maintain the best prices we can and offer a wonderful choice in Nepalese, Indian, Thai, Indonesian and Mexican hippy festival clothing.

Winter Stock has landed
We have had so many people asking when our winter woollens will arrive.  Well I can tell you they are here.  We have just started adding our new range of Nepalese wool jackets to the website.  These new hippy styled wool jackets come handmade from Nepal and are all fleeced lined (fleece lining is not included in the jumpers).  Most of our hippy Nepalese wool jackets come in several sizes so there is a good choice for our customers.

Indian Headdresses Removed

At the beginning of September we received a small order or native american style Indian headdresses.  Within a few weeks we had several people contacting us regarding the sale of these items.  After much thought we decided it was best that we removed these items from our website as the sale of these items did not fit in with our views.  The native American headdress is an item that is honoured among the native American tribes.  You earn the right to wear this sacred head piece and so after receiving information and reading up about the impact selling these items has on the Native American Indians we choose to remove the items from sale. We are proud to not be selling an item that should only be warn by the proud tribes of the Native American Indians who earn the right to wear their ceremonial hear pieces.

We can’t wait to get out there and enjoy the festival fun in 2015.

Male clothes are a coming (well they’re here actually)
Yes that’s right we have more male hippy clothes.  Sorry ladies we know you like new clothes as well but its the blokes turn.
Loads of new Nepalese printed pattern waistcoats in 3 sizes, these fantastic cotton waistcoats look great with smart clothing or with jeans and a T-Shirt.  As they are handmade is one is slightly unique.
Loads more cotton ponchos have been delivered in many more colours.  These thick weave cotton ponchos are all handmade in Nepal and are great for any festival or just to wear when ever it takes your fancy.
Green Man cotton thick weave jacket.  This jacket comes in a nice black heavy cotton material with cotton lining.  The back of this hippy styled cotton jacket has a brightly coloured Green Man embroidery patch.

Tie Dye Time
We love tie dye hippy clothing.  Tie dye clothing was a great way to turn your dull boring piece of clothing into something with a bit colour and life.  The 1960’s saw people with low incomes turning to charity shops to buy their clothing.  As the clothing often was boring many people started to dye their clothes to give them a personal touch.  Not many people tie dye their own clothes in modern society although it can be fun and I remember trying it at school all those years ago and enjoying the idea of making your own arty clothes.  As we know people have busy lives we are happy to offer a wide range of tie dyed hippy fashions from T-Shirts to skirts, dresses to bags.  If it looks funky in tie dye then we have started to stock it.

Festival Season 2014
It’s been a long time coming (a whole year to be precise) but it’s finally here. The first festivals of 2014 have started and its time to get your festival threads out.  We have rounded up our best festival clothes and made sure we have loads of goodies for you to pick your way through.  So don’t be shy and take a look through our hippy festival clothing website and find some fresh funky looking festival clothing for the festival 2014 season.  Peace and love to all.

Bank Holiday Clothes just arrived
May is a great time of year, yep two bank holiday weekends in one month.  We know all our UK customers are just as happy as we are about this beautiful fact.  Anyway we thought we let you know that we have had a nice new order in from Nepal and Thailand.  So we have some cracking patchwork hooded cotton jackets from Nepal, there jackets are made by Gringo and are all unique.  Our cotton striped grandad shirts and trousers are now back in stock in more colours and sizes so head along to the shop and have a look at these favourite items. The women will be happy to hear to have a lovely collection of beach wraps or sarong all the way from sunny Thailand.  We have many fun and colourful designs to choose from so you can get stuck in.  Our Thai cotton kaftan range has also increased as we love these long kaftan dresses.  Some of the designs are even great for men.  I actually live in these clothes, they are great for wearing around the house and I prefer them to a dressing gown.

Who are Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing?

That would be me.  My name is Simon, I was born in 1981 and although I have been labelled a hippy since I was about 16 even though I clearly missed the 1960’s.  However this period in time has been a heavy influence on my life.  I love the music produced during this period and such bands as the Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Incredible String Band, Country Joe and the Fish, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel to name but a few have been part of my music collection for many years.  Of course my music choices do extend back past the 60’s as well as coming up to the present.

The 60’s were about finding ones self which is something that I so desperately wanted.  The idea of individualism has been something I struggled with when being at school, I really had no idea who I was as a person.  Should I be copying what everyone else was doing or should I just do what I wanted.  During my early teens I noticed that people who were a little different were picked on and often bullied, this is something that goes on in schools across the UK and I’m sure worldwide on a  day to day basis.  It wasn’t until I left school and meet a new group of peers that I was able to find who I was and become the individual that I so wanted to be.  Much like the hippies of the 1960’s I wanted to be known as a individual person with his own beliefs and view points.  I started wearing the clothing I wanted and went through several mood swings until I settled down into being me. From the music and the clothes came a person who could finally express who he was.  I confess I was a little reckless during my late teens but what teenager isn’t?  I then calmed down and took on the philosophy of trying not to harm others with my actions and look at life in a positive way.

Of course the idea of being a hippy was not about wearing the clothes and listening to the music it was about (and still is about) having respect for other people and the world around you.  I have tried over the years to stick to these principles as much as I can and hope this shows in the company that I have created.  Yes I know that some people will see the irony of being labelled a hippy and owing your own company but life is full of irony, I am after all still fending for myself.

Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing  is my baby and over the last 5 years has grown to be one of the UK’s fastest growing Hippy clothing websites.  I’m a small business owner who works very hard to make sure my customers get the unique and interesting clothing they want.  I don’t just sell these clothes I wear them, I live in them and I love them.  My clothes are my external expression of who I am as a person and I know there are many of you out there who feel the same about the clothes you wear.  I don’t want to look like everyone on the high street and make it a point to make sure there are plenty of choices for my customers so they can also be different.

Our hippy Blog
This is the start of Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing’s hippy blog.
You can find out about new arrived stock, things we are expecting.  We will also post any news we come by that we think you might be interested in or just general stuff we feel we want to talk about, after all it is my website and if the mood takes me I’ll just talk rubbish. Feel free to read or pass it by.  I will try to keep what I say useful but I can give no guarantees.
