Each shirt is naturally hand dyed with indigo to create one of a kind result.  The blue we chose is in honor of the Woodhouse Scrub Jay, a bird selected by our artist Chelsea, and much like in the natural world the exact shade of blue can vary slightly Jay to Jay, so too do our tees because they were dyed in this all-natural way.

The indigo process in incredible unique and has very deep historical and cultural roots across the globe. The type of indigo used is Indigofera Tinctoria which is one of the most commonly cultivated species of indigo. The shirts range in color depending on length of time in indigo vat as well as time given for the indigo molecule to fully oxidize (which binds the indigo to the fiber). This process is 100% sustainable and all waste water was neutralized and given back to the earth.
