Photo: GREEN LEAF IMMERSION DYED BATIK. The Men’s XL, long sleeve cotton Gildan shirt hangs outside our new studio and production space. Since 2003 we have used sustainable practices. Our excitement peaks as we have designed the new facility to utilize a 165 gallon rain barrel system that gathers the Pacific NW rain off the roof. We are dedicated to creating long lasting, artistically-made products that you can enjoy for many, many years. more…
