The Portrait Tee
Our first shirt features an illustrated portrait from NYC artist Louie Chin. The portrait was taken of Graziella at her kitchen table in 2014, the year before she passed. In the moment, I felt bad taking photos of her. Now that she’s gone, I cherish them and wish there were many more.
This shirt will quickly become a favorite in your rotation.
Made from 6.1oz, 100% ring spun cotton / pre-shrunk
