(scroll down for Dutch) Clothes with consciousness– Artwearness is a company with awareness. Whats in a name. We have a message, which is more important than pure modern economics; keep your eyes open, be a conscious consumer. We share this message by the way we express ourselves on our shirts. By ironic comments, sharp graphics and somewhat provoking statements. We make statements, because we expect our buyers to be intelligent creatures. And because they are intelligent, we believe that this intelligence can be used to change the world for the better in stead of the worse. We print on demand so we choose to keep our ecological footprint small and we print on T-shirts of the slavefree and sustainable cotton-brand Stella and Stanley.
Fashion Revolution- Stella and Stanley choose to produce their cloth in a sustainable manner, with respect for planet and human. In collaboration with the Fair Wear Foundation, they work close with Bangladesh factories to guarantee high quality cloth and at the same time taking their responsibility regarding social and ecological issues. Stella and Stanley are participating in the #Fashion Revolutionand asked us to participate too. And we are more than welcome to.
Who made my clothes– Fashion is one of the most polluting and exploiting industries of this modern world. The reason is simple, we want something new and we want it cheap. As fas as we are concerned, it seems easy to change starting here, now, with your own wardrobe, wishes and desires. Because currently we are not the fashion victims, but the laborers are and the planet is. It is time to change that. If you agree so share #Fashionrevolution and #whomademyclothes.
We thank you, Artwearness

Kleding met bewustzijn- Artwearness is een bedrijf met bewustzijn. Whats in a name. We hebben een boodschap; houd je ogen open en wees een bewuste consument. Wij delen deze boodschap door de wijze waarop wij ons zelf uitdrukking in de prints op de shirts. Door ironisch commentaar, scherpe graphics en enigszins prikkelende statements. We maken statements omdat we geloven dat onze kopers inteligente wezens zijn. Wij geloven ook dat, omdat zij intelligent zijn geloven we dat hun intelligentie ook de wereld juist beter kan maken, niet slechter. We printen ‘on demand’ dat houdt in, een kleine ecologische footprint en we printen op shirts van het slaafvrije en duurzame merk, Stella & Stanley.
Fashion Revolution- Stella and Stanley kiest er voor om haar kleding productie duurzaam en met respect voor mens en planeet te produceren. In samen werking met de Fair Wear Foundation, werken ze nauw samen met Blangaleshe fabrieken om zo kwaliteit te garanderen en hun verantwoordelijkheid te nemen voor ecologische en sociale omstandigheden. Stella and Stanley doet mee aan de #Fashion Revolutionen heeft ons gevraagd ook mee te doen. En dat doen we graag!
Who made my clothes– Mode is een van de meest vervuilende en mensonterende industrie in deze moderne wereld. De reden is simpel, we willen steeds iets nieuws en we willen er weinig voor betalen. Wat ons betreft is dat dus eigenlijk ook makkelijk te veranderen, beginnend bij je zelf, je eigen kledingkeuze, wensen en verlangens. Want momenteel zijn wij het niet die ‘fashion victims’ zijn maar de arbeiders en onze planeet! Als jij het hier ook mee eens bent deel dan #fashion revolution # who made my clothes.
I was born in 1972 in Haarlem, the Netherlands. In 1992 I moved to Zwolle and since that year I developed myself as an illustrator an graphic designer. Besides that, I make autonomus work as a draftsman. In 2015 I founded my company Rubenski Graphics. My illustrations are defined by linework, and sometimes added (cross)hatching. In my graphic design work I look for a powerful visual statement, illuminated with decorative ornamentations and motives. In my visual art I try to visualise the inexpressible, the mystical. I conceive art as an attempt to perfection, knowing that one goes a path without destiny. In simple words: it must look nice. When Marit asked me to design some shirt for Artwearness, I was immediately enthousiastic about the concept of te company. I hope I can deliver a convincing contribution.
Design ‘Mythical Chesshorse’ is made by Ruben ‘ Rubenski’ @ artwearness. You can order Mythical Chess horse @ email@example.com More about Ruben: rubenskigraphics.wordpress.com
Accessible for the masses, suitable for the connoisseur Our concept is simple; for us a t-shirt is like a canvas with artistic & social statements longing to be exposed.
With our artistic statements and ironic graphics, we seduce and tickle the wearer of the shirt to get out of his or her comfort zone and become more than a billboard for a brand name.
Inspiration. Some of the prints are inspired on and extracted from artworks made by Artwearness founder Marit Otto, visual artist, in Zwolle. They are stripped of their original context and placed in a new perspective. Next to this we present fresh and new conceptual graphic designs. These concepts are based on an idea, a hunch or on current events. Our variety of shirts distinguish themselves by several themes like statementz, artwearness, awareness,specialz, and philosophicalz, Girlz & Boyz
Artwearness is awareness The time we live in requires a different way of thinking and (re)acting. We are dealing with mass culture, overconsumption, over population and climate change. Artwearness offers the conscious consumer an original and honest product; we believe in making choices
Sustainability and fair-trade. Artwearness has no stock; each order is printed on demand for each customer. No stock means no surplus and no waste resulting in a smaller ecological footprint. We print on Stanley and Stella shirts. They produce beautiful, high quality, modern, sustainable and slave free products. We are very aware of the world around us and we offer the conscious consumer an honest alternative to the price fighting fashion industry. Currently this is still reflected in the price of our products. Artwearness is an initiative by Marit Otto (www.maritotto.nl) and Erik van Scheijndel. (www.19hetatelierarchitecten.nl)
Artwearness also offers a platform for other artists. Artwearness is always looking for more creatives. Designers, artists and illustrators are more than welcome to join our club and expand their options for showing their concepts.
Artwearness wants to exhale artfulness, playfulness, enthusiasm and sustainability. We invite you into a cool and untamed world of art and philosophy.
