United We Art-7

United We Art created a mini print shop in the middle of the downtown Whole Foods store yesterday.  Shoppers were able to select an artist created cut and see it applied to a T-Shirt while they waited.

This local company  is on a mission to help foster a sense of community by providing a way for their customers to give to those in need.  They do this by producing a second T-shirt with each purchase to be donated to someone in the Austin area.

United We Art - Tee Shirt

The T-shirts are created using an ancient technique called ‘relief printing’.  The original drawings are hand carved into linoleum cuts.  These are then applied to the material using a manual, electricity free, roller. They use only sweat shop free, eco-sensible, and organic clothing made in the U.S.A. The inks are made of all natural, non-hazardous minerals and pigments.

In order to stay true to the traditions of relief printing, they only press 1000 of each artistic expression.  Each shirt is numbered and the buyer is provided a certificate of authenticity, with the name of the cut, name of the artist, location of purchase, and the name of who authenticated the one of a kind T-shirt.
