These cotton T's are upcycled from unwanted promotional T-shirts discarded by a business in our neighborhood. We helped them manage this excess garment "waste" by turning these unloved tops into unique pieces that celebrate transformation fluidity and creative self expression.

The original T's were turned inside out and restructured to create utilitarian folded pockets along the bottom of the T and stripped of their luridly bright colors to create two unique new colors inspired by nature; lichen and sky. As we remove the dye in small batches, slight variation in tones may occur. Dye cannot be stripped from the thread so it remains as a colorful detail that nods to the transformation process behind these shirts. 

Traces of the original print may be visible, showing the dynamic history and layered narrative that make these shirts so uniquely anti-waste. We love them for their non-automated, DIY feel, and cropped boxy fit. 

T-shirt sizing (shoulder to shoulder / chest in inches / length in inches, highest point shoulder to hem) model is 5'5'' and wears a size XL in sky and size S in lichen. 
S - 17 / 36 / 19
M - 18.5 / 38 / 20 
L - 20 / 43 / 21.5
XL - 23 / 48 / 23
