Set in one of the UK’s most multicultural postcode, Peckham Soul celebrates the unique creative energy of SE15 and the most defining feature of South East London – diversity. Here you have a vintage clothing emporium and record shop that flexes its range of vinyl delights, so expect a smorgasbord of genres; from hip-hop, indie, classic rock, dub, jazz, folk, reggae – it’s all here.

When head honcho at Peckham Soul Craig Jamieson relocated to Peckham 10 years ago, its diversity – along with the warmth of this South East postcode – captured him immediately. As a DJ at Soul Train’s Northern Soul Room, a room banner he designed kept being photographed by the crowd. Not long later, a limited run of T-shirts he designed also sold out in seconds and so an idea was born; officially marked by Peckham Soul’s collectable ‘Hands’ tee.

Rejecting negativity and stereotypes, Peckham Soul knows that diversity is the spark which ignites debate and engagement – an engagement which makes life better and more interesting for all – and so the label continues to explore this through design.

The ‘Sound Map’ series charts the melody of voices which emerged from South East London’s unique musical postcodes, and its new ‘Rootsmaster’ and ‘Blues Party’ designs shows how these different voices fused together to create many original approaches to music.

Proud to be part of Copeland Park’s creative community, the Peckham Soul Bussey boutique exclusively stocks all available T-shirt designs, made for all-comers. Along with its retro clothing range which stocks original pieces of vintage, this is great place to while away the hours and crate dig its rare, hard-to-find vinyl which Craig is more than happy to play and offer tidbits of info on.
