Silky-soft premium Bella+Canvas tri-blend shirt
Water-based discharge ink for supple feel and vintage look
We use a tri-blend Bellas+Canvas shirt for this design, made proudly sweatshop-free in the United States and Honduras. This incredibly soft and light shirt is the most comfortable we’ve ever worn and will become your go-to favorite. Sure, these cost us a few more dollars than other brands, but we believe the premium quality is worth every penny. Polyester (50%) retains shape and elasticity; Ring-Spun Cotton (25%) lends both comfort and durability; the addition of Rayon (25%) makes for a unique texture and drapes against the body for a slimming look.
Our shirts are silk-screened by skilled craftsmen in Portland, Oregon, at a shop renowned for their work with water-based and discharge inks. Unlike plastisol inks which place a layer of plastic-like ink on the surface, these special inks actually dye the fibers of the fabric. This leaves a printed area that is light and soft to the touch that won't crack and disintegrate from wear and washing. When using a lighter ink on a darker shirt (such as this design), a discharge agent is added to the ink that bleaches the original dye from the organic fabric; this creates a distinct heathered effect when used on poly-blend fabric, giving the print a broken-in or vintage feel.
