I worked in the iconic Hacienda (FAC51) for several years in the early 90's. The industrial stripes and colours are synonymous to that era. In the 90's there was no cooler and more hip place than Manchester (or so it felt at the time!). 13 stripes has a hidden meaning: 13th letter of the alphabet - M (meaning marijuana). The number 13 featured a lot around 1960's Manchester. Not that I condone the use of marijuana, it is subtle way to link these 2 important eras into one design. ROCK.
