Limited to 100 shirts, 13 designs, each based on a country on the equator. Each t-shirt was dyed by hand using colours representing the country’s main exports, meeting at the point the equator passes through each country.
In a back garden over a summer the three of us designed, dyed and screen-printed 100 shirts. We documented the process to produce a photocopied zine given away at the launch event.
T-shirts made, we grabbed some mates, shot them over the course of a day and produced a lookbook printed by Ex Why Zed in Colchester. The lookbook caught the attention of some local buyers but we didn’t intend on producing anymore shirts.
We organized a launch to give people the opportunity to learn more about the process and grab a shirt of their own. The profits of the project contributed to us exhibiting our work in London.
