note: the shirts are sourced in post-consumer ways, meaning they’re thrifted or purchased thru rag houses or vintage resellers. occasionally I get shirts from deadstock wholesalers, meaning it’s never been worn, but it isn’t the original producer isn’t selling them. This is important to me, as I don’t want to contribute to the production of more unnecessary T-shirts, and since T-shirt factories often have the worst working conditions. There’s literally so many blank shirts already in existence, so I’m printing on those instead. It’s a lot of extra work on my part, since the sizing is always different and I have to look for flaws and photograph each and every shirt individually… but I believe it to be worth the work, I hope you appreciate the unique nature of these pieces!!
