General Information

Artwearness. Artful, fresh, sustainable and original.

Artful & original.
The time we live in requires a different way of thinking and acting. We have to deal with mass culture, overconsumption, over population and climate change.

Artwearness offers the conscious consumer an original and honest product with awareness.
It is a matter of choice.

Social statement.
Artwearness is an initiative of Marit Otto and Erik van Scheijndel. The concept is simple, a t-shirt as a canvas, with a social statement.

By 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 signpost for a brand name.

Some of the prints are inspired on and extracted from Marit’s artworks. They are stripped of their original context and placed in a new perspective. Next to this we present fresh and new conceptual graphic designs. The concepts are based on an idea, a hunch or on current events.

Sustainability and fair trade.
Artwearness has no stock; each order is printed especially for each customer. No stock means no surplus and no waste resulting in a smaller ecological footprint. We print on the shirts of Stanley and Stella, they produce beautiful, high quality, modern, sustainable and slave free products.These choices are reflected in the price, we are not cheap. We are no competition for price fighters (Remember someone, somewhere, some environment gets exploited for cheap fashion). We offer you an honest alternative.
