bestiario

I think I had a dream like this once, but that’s another story.  Bestiarios are the work of Milanese designer miss-tal.  She’s created a range of delightfully strange illustrations to sell on t-shirts, wallpaper and brooches like the one pictured.  The brooches are laser-cut in Germany, while the shirts are manufactured by an online service using pretty well-known t-shirt brands.  Oh yes, and all the illustrations are available as free iPhone wallpapers, in case you don’t want to part with any actual cash…

partybots

Seattle-based Karl Addison is the creative talent behind Partybots.  His illustrations range from the strange to the subtle to the simply cool, but what seals the deal is his commitment to low environmental impact production methods and materials.  Printing on organic cotton and using platen glue, soy-based cleaners, and screen printing solvents that utilize renewable soy.  Buy online from Dawanda or Etsy.

thokkthokk

The only thing that is better than ThokkThokk’s graphic bold prints is the long list of karma points this brand is accumulating.  100% organic cotton, 100% fair trade, sweatshop free, waterbased inks…  what more can we ask for?  Oh, did I mention that no one will be able to tell you’re a hippy when you’re wearing these tees?  Buy online from their Dawanda store, or their own online shop.  You can read all about them and their long list of credentials on the ThokkThokk website.

el moco

Limited edition super graphic design printed on tshirts, dresses, skirts and accessories in their Dawanda store and their Etsy store.  How can I describe their unique style?  Modern surrealism infused with mad doodles and street art style?  Just go have a look for yourself already.

zoe chen

Zoe chen is an illustrator and designer from San Fransisco who sells very cute clothes in her Etsy boutique.  Her drawings are printed onto tshirts, skirts, dresses, hoodies, etc and range from ducks and cats to umbrellas and paper planes.  Some are sugar sweet while others are more understated and simple, but they’re all drawn in her bold graphic signature style.

mind what you wear

i used to be a bottleFull disclosure: Bea from Mind What You Wear is a friend of mine.  But I’m putting her on this list because she has some great stuff and she stands firmly behind the cause of ethical consumerism.  Her own clothing line is characterised by tongue-in-cheek(y) political statements and “clothes that make you go hmmm”.  Her website also carries lines of clothing, accessories and objects from other independent artists and designers.
