2018 starts with a new design

Hello to you all, a brand new day in a brand new year!!!!!! Cheers. Unfortunately most good intentions of 2017 were killed in action. That’s how it goes. So before we start on our new year we salute 2017, with her successes and failures. And apologize to her that again we did not entirely managed to keep it peaceful everywhere, that we are no step closer to a cleaner world and that we are still chasing glitters and glamours. That leaves somethings to wish for this year!

Hereby we present our new design to you ‘ Zorry’ 

Zorry seems the hardest word to say. Zometimes it takes courage and true character to apologize. And there is always zomething to be zorry about…So, now you can make a great gesture, without words & with a nice twist.

We have few cool discounts too….. So time to check us again @ . See also: www.madeinzwolle.nl and if you are coincidentally in Zwolle to do stuff, you can check Warehouse Blauwdruck for our shirts too! design Zorry  is only available at www.artwearness.com

 

Made (it) In Zwolle

Thomas A. Kempis, Johan Thorbecke and Artwearness are Made In Zwolle.

And proud of it too!

Artwearness has a new alliance with Made In Zwolle.

Made In Zwolle is an online platform for local artist, creators, designers, crafters and producers. All are makers in Zwolle.

We have several designs @ the webshop Made In Zwolle and the number of designs will grow in the future.

One of the designs is design ‘Statement’ and of course our X-Mess design will be present!

Don’t let our English communication fool you, we are as Dutch as Rembrandt and Zwols as Zwolse balletjes. We communicate in English because it’s, like body language, an universal language.

We like to make our mark with, leave our traces and stand tall for our blue heritage.

So a little Made (also) in Zwolle, history and future for you

What about artful shopping with style?

Black Friday and Cyber Monday, That is not our cup of tea. Excuse us if we make a critical note here. Why on earth do we need more and more stuff and preferably cheap as Trump. Why do we let our selves manipulate so easily by all those mega companies that makes us believe we will have never enough even while we are already buried and choking in stuff. The mayhem and frenzy at the stores looks like we are desperately seeking for the last drop of water, because we polluted the rest. Why are we so easy triggered to look out for nr. one and forget what kind of footprint our behavior leaves for the next generations? Speaking on behalf of me, ‘ I would never settle with the label consumer’ because that is not what I am and it certainly not defines me. It is something you do. It might as well be something you do with consciousness and intelligence. That brings me to the reason to sell our shirts with  Awareness. And why we choose certain partners (in crime) to work with.

For instance: Warehouse Blauwdruck: is a warehouse with a different attitude  They sell local produced art & artful items. They work with artist and creative and cradle to cradle entrepreneurs. Besides Blauwdruck warehouse owner Jorien exploits an art gallery. Warehouse Blauwdruck  is located in a former Chinees restaurant and the remains of that are still visible. The interieur is basic, robust, sturdy, raw  and slightly industrial never the less the atmosphere is warm and cosy. Deliroos is a lunchroom residing in the warehouse. So while feasting your eyes and contemplating witch original gift you are about to buy, one can enjoy nice comfort food.

And of course you will find our shirts present too. No shirts for lame ducks, but spicy prints on fair cottons. Together with Blauwdruck we will have our own Holliday action soon on Bleu Monday, Ruby Tuesday, Moody Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday, Thank God It’s Friday and Black Sabbath. keep your eyes open …..and keep track of us. Consume with conscious!

To follow up our statement: What about artful shopping with style?……… it is not a hollow one, check this:
