These grey marle kids sweatshirts are warm and cozy - 260 GSM, 65% Cotton, 35% Poly, Anti-pill fabric, Raglan Sleeves and are hand-printed using water based inks (heat cured to last!)

Pīwakawaka: The pīwakawaka's short wings and beautiful tail fan have evolved for fast, agile flight. They are experts at catching tiny flying insects in the air and will do so without fear of people - making them a favourite of many tramping and gardening New Zealanders.

Tumbleweed Tees recommend the following care instructions for their garments:

• machine wash cold with like colours

• avoid bleach

• line dry in the shade if possible

• do not dry clean

• our prints are fine to iron over (as they are heat cured)

• designs can fade over time, and fading is hastened by frequent hot washes

 

Wellington-based duo Kimberly and James have turned their background in biology and “bird nerd” obsession into a t-shirt business.  All of the design and print work is done in-house in Days Bay, New Zealand - from rough sketches through to finished art work, transferring the art to silk screens and printing. They screen-print all products by hand, using low environmental impact water-based inks. Their t-shirts are designed in New Zealand, and made in either China or Bangladesh. The production facilities are all W.R.A.P (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified , ensuring a sweat-shop free product and ethical work conditions.
