New nature t-shirt series designs

nature series t-shirts by Origin68

It's been a while since we released some new tees, so we've gone mad and released three at the same time! We were feeling pretty inspired by all things nature related, so we decided to put a little collection together using that as the theme. We've even roped in a few friends to design them.

First up in TREES by our longtime friend Tilman from Geometry Daily. In his classic style he's come up with some minimal tree designs. So simple, but so clever.

Second is PLANTS by Will Scobie. We have wanted to work with Will for a while now, and once we had decided on the nature theme we thought his iconic style would be perfect. We love these little abstract plant studies.

Last up is our own Origin68 MOUNTAINS design. A perfect little reminder of those lazy summer days wandering through the countryside.


Kids Human Being t-shirts & babygrows!

This won't surprise you! A lot of our friends have pestered us for a few years now about doing some of our most famous designs on child friendly apparel. And for a long while we said; "no chance, we're too cool for school". Now, for no apparent reason, we've changed our minds!

OK OK you're too wise for that. We just needed Origin68 to cloth our own babies! We thought that the Human Being range would be ideal for the job - after all babies are humans too!

We've got a range of sizes of Babygrows and we've also got some Human Being black Kids T-shirts. Perfect for your own mini Origin68 fans!

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.
