We use an extremely plush medium-weight 50/50 Los Angeles Apparel hoodie for this design, made proudly sweatshop-free in Los Angeles. An ultra-soft, ultra-comfy hoodie that feels like you’ve owned it for years the moment you put it on, and for years to come. Sure, these cost us a few more dollars than other brands, but we believe the premium quality is worth every penny. This fabric is a middle ground between Tri-Blend and 100% Cotton—blending the two fabrics (50% Polyester and 50% Ring-Spun Cotton) increases strength, decreases weight, and adds softness and breathability.
Our hoodies are silk-screened by skilled craftsmen in Portland, Oregon, at a shop known 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 used on a poly-blend fabric (such as this hoodie), the discharge agent in the ink bleaches the original dye from the organic fabric; this creates a slight heathered effect, giving the print a broken-in or vintage feel.
