Featured collection - Seattle ROOTS
Having both been born and raised in Seattle, WA, where city meets the sea, we continue this collection looking to represent the foundation, culture and ideas throughout the region. Founded as a timber town and named after a prominent Native American, Chief Sealth (Si'ahl), the city has grown and changed over the years, but the idea to preserve and nurture the nature in the area, has remained within the people. Whether taking a stroll down Pike Place Market, a water taxi from Seattle to Alki, a Ferry to Bainbridge Island, or grabbing a bite to eat on Elliot Bay, the presence of the Puget Sound can not go unnoticed, especially when accompanied by the sighting of an Orca whale. For our second design in the Seattle Roots collection, we wanted bring together the founding cultures of Seattle by blending a modernized Native American art style, with an urban graffiti tag, and the most beloved Sea Creature of the region. It is here where we present to you, the SEA Whale.
The year this dream all started. Back in 2008, the last year the Seattle Supersonics were in the NBA, I was a ball boy for the team. I got to sit court side for most home games, distributing Gatorade and wiping up sweat off the floor. A once in a lifetime opportunity that has ceased to exist. That was the same year I started designing and printing t-shirts as a hobby always desiring to take it to the professional level. Here we are 12 years later and it only felt right to have our first design rooted in those experiences. Something elusive in nature which only takes capturing it once to make it a real thing. So today we are introducing Sasquatch.
