2020, the year of unprecedented change, adjustment and adaptation.
We have all in some way or another been affected by the events of this year. As a small business, it has really tested us as individuals and as a team. However, we have come back stronger, and fortunate enough to be in a position to help others.
In September, we released two Limited Edition Charity bundles, for two extremely important causes. The bundles feature both a hand-printed t-shirt and an A4 Fine Art Print.
Women's Aid is a grassroots charity who work towards ending domestic abuse against women and children in England. In a report published in August by Women's Aid, it stated that 91% of respondents who are currently experiencing domestic abuse have stated the situation has been impacted negatively during Covid-19.
“Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic did not cause domestic abuse, it has created a perfect storm of challenges for survivors and the services supporting them." - Sarah Davidge (Women's Aid Research & Evaluation Manager)

T-shirt & Print Bundle
Illustrate teamed up with Ella Bryden Design for the artwork on this T-shirt and Art Print. The T-shirt features a large back design which matches the A4 art print. On the front of the tee is a small chest design depicting two hands interlocked in a 'pinky promise' gesture. As always, the garments are hand-printed in our workshop in Bristol, onto our 180gsm, 100% Organic Cotton T-shirts.
