SHOP THIS THING
Exciting News! I now have an online webshop, working with teemill.com. I currently have a range of 12 tshirts available in unisex sizes XS-XXL, with new product ranges coming soon. I'm so excited to be able to bring you this range. It feels like a step that's authentically me.
Fashion student turned graphic designer turned disabled brand owner?
This launch is about bringing you nice products, yes, but it's also bringing you products that can spark conversations. You don't have to have a certain condition to wear them, for a lot of the designs you don't have to have any condition to wear them. This collection is about giving the sick and disabled pieces that speak to their experiences. But it's also about giving everyone and anyone an In.
A simple and approachable way to bring about conversations on health and illness. It can start with a simple "I like your tshirt". Neat, huh? If you consider yourself an ally to the sick and disabled, please feel free to support this shop and wear your pieces proudly. I simply ask that if you're complimented on your tee, you use the opportunity to share my message.
WHAT WE"VE GOT:
- A webshop free from gendered language
- GOTS certified organic cotton
- Social Accountability certified (SA8000)
- Process powered by wind and solar
- Low impact inks
- Plastic free packaging
WHAT I'M STILL WORKING ON:
I want to be as transparent as possible with you about this range and the steps I'm taking to improve things. I understand that the current size range is not inclusive enough, and before launch brought this up with Teemill. My feedback was sent to their product development team, who agreed with me that this can be improved and needs to change.
The website isn't currently accessible for those of you that use screen readers, for which I'm very sorry. This again is something I've brought up with Teemill. I sent over detailed feedback regarding accessibility features needed for those that are blind or sight impaired, as well as for those that navigate around a webpage using the keyboard instead of the mouse. This feedback was gratefully and respectfully received and sent straight to the web development team.
I'm committed to ensuring that This Thing is a space for everyone, and will continue to use my privileges to speak up on issues that affect others. I will of course keep you all in the loop with any changes that are made.
I really appreciate your understanding and your support. This sick kid has big plans and you're helping me bring them to life!
The webshop is free from gendered language, but it's worth noting that the fit of the tshirts is often referred to as a "mens" style meaning it's a more straight fit. If it helps I'm 5"7 and a UK 10/12. I wear a size Medium for a regular fit, and a Large for a more oversized feel. Ryan is 6"4 and a UK Large/XL. In the above images he is wearing either a Medium or a Large, but says an XL would be his preferred choice.
