(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 clothes 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 Revolution and 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 Revolution en 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.
Dank je wel, Artwearness
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.

A beautiful Storie with a sad ending….Into the wild, inspiration for nomad republic promotion.
Design Mom looks good on Moms. Not only is it a tribute to their being but it is very complimenting on their looks.
What does it mean being selfish? What does it mean today? Selfishness use to have a negative connotation. Today it seems the way to go trough life; me, myself and I and leave some crumbs for the others.
No……… thats not entirely truth. Many people are going out of their way to create a better world, to be positive and cooperative and being aware and acting on it. But unfortunately the majority, the greater mass of people are putting their needs and wants for anything else. Even at the cost of others without even realizing it. This is the way we are brought up, buy, buy, buy. Life is beautiful if the economy runs. We are living in consumers paradise, we are tested every day. We became consumers before humans. What ever we consume gives us a nice feeling, a sense of belonging (according to the commercials). I spend therefor I exist! What does this innocent consuming actually harm anyway. A happy consumer is no harassement to others, that much is truth. But in the long run if this consumer does not analyze where his shit comes from and who carries the burden for it, it has great impact on anything, every where. For instant cheap stuff is often made by an (almost) enslaved working force, or from polluting factories producing worthless plastic gadgets. So cutting down on the Selfish could be of great benefit for all, especially if everyone does so.
Design Selfish is available @www.artwearness.com we use fair trade, slave free and sustainable cottons by Stella & Stanley.
For inspiration for our promo: The 80/90 Hip hop formation Dela Soul made a song with the brilliant title: Me Myself and I (music video below)
