Alchemy Gothic T-Shirts. 8Ball are recommended UK dealers of Alchemy Gothic clothing. The label was born out of the UK punk scene, being founded in Leicester in 1977 by DIY artists, model-makers and designers Geoff Kayson and Trevor Phillipson. Since those humble beginnings, Alchemy has gown into a worldwide brand, but has never lost its gothic edge or creative spirit. For tees with a dark and gothic twist, look no further.
