    All shirts are handmade using Hanes Beefy-T™ 100% cotton shirts and Procion™ fiber reactive dyes. Each shirt is designed as an individual. The process involves folding, tying & dying - drying - seperate front and back wax designs and a 2nd dye application - wax removal and washing. The shirts have been washed thoroughly and are safe to wash with other laundry. Shirts may be a little stiff from batiking and will soften up quickly with wear.
