This product is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver it to you. Making products on demand instead of in bulk helps reduce overproduction, so thank you for making thoughtful purchasing decisions!

The unique nature of these artworks means that items with the same print might not match exactly, as they may feature different zoom levels or sections of the painting.

We collaborate with ethical production partners in South America and Europe that we personally assessed and vetted for the state of their facilities, the code of conduct they apply, the feedback from employees, and application of fair wages; amongst many other factors.

Based on our research and expertise in manufacturing, crafting garments in the same country where the fabric originates is a more sustainable approach, minimising waste. This holds true when the facilities uphold sustainable manufacturing standards.
