I hope you all had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, and didn’t make the mistake I made of eating Easter eggs for breakfast (not recommended). I’ve had a bit of a break from the laptop screen over the last few days, but me and Kay from Cut Out Shop have been busy Easter bunnies getting the Created in Birmingham T-shirts made.
Kay has done a wonderful job. She has lovingly hand screen printed the T-shirts in her West Midlands based studio, using the winning ‘Birmingham Wards Map’ design by Kate Parry. She has chosen ethically made shirts and has used earth friendly inks which don’t harm the environment. Along with designer Katie, we decided to create the items in classic black and daring gold, which is a bit brave, but also a million miles away from the usual, bland charity t-shirts.
First and foremost, the T-shirts and tote bags have been designed and created with one goal, to raise money and awareness for a Birmingham based charity – Acorns Children’s Hospice. The charity was chosen after reading your suggestions, and it was clearly a popular choice.
The items will be available to buy sometime over the next couple of weeks, in a very limited run of 50 T-shirts and 50 tote bags. Keep ’em peeled so you don’t miss out.
