New 'Shapes' series t-shirts

Shapes sewries tshirts


We have a trio of lovely new t-shirts ready for summer deployment. You could think of it as a Making Shapes E.P. as we explore some interesting geometric themes. 

First up is Equals. Here at Origin68 we believe that everyone is an equal regardless of gender, race, religion or whatever else people might use to divide us. We are infinitely stronger together regardless of what some of our politicians might think! #Brexit

Next we have Lazy Days by friend of Origin68 Joe Trickett. Joe's geometric triptych design put us in mind of hot lazy days by the pool, overlooked by an epic mountain-scape. For anyone who's been to Palm Springs; a bit like that! Guess that makes Joe our resident Hockney!

Finally we have Shapes. Triangles are our favourite shapes.... But we still like squares and circles too! This tessellation shows that nicely, as it interplays between the different geometric structures and their patterns. We like to think that it's a representation of a sound... A big bang if you will!

As with all Origin68 clothing, all three shirts are hand printed in the UK on a climate neutral 100% organic cotton t-shirt.


New pelican t-shirt design

We've just released a brand new tshirt design. Hand drawn by our very own design team. By using the marbling patterns we used to make as children, we set about creating a shirt that would bring together the pelican and oil that affects the ecosystem so horribly. Inspired by several oil spills across the summer of 2014 and the scars of previous vast spills, like the Gulf of Mexico, we wanted to create a tribute to the ecosystems affected. The pelican is a favourite and noble beast, befitting as the centrepiece of the design. Pelicans and oil shouldn't mix. But we feel that when brought together as a hand drawn illustration, the results are poignant and beautiful. Hand printed in the UK on a LIGHT GREY climate neutral 100% organic cotton t-shirt.
