Also known as whakahao/rāpoka or Hooker’s sea lion, NZ sea lions are one of the rarest and most threatened sea lion species in the world and are only found on our shores. Their main breeding populations are the Auckland and Campbell Islands in the NZ Subantarctic, as well as the Otago and Southland coasts, Stewart Island. A full grown male can weigh up to 320–450 kilograms!

All Tumbleweed Tees kids’ t-shirts are hand-printed to order using water based inks.

Children adore these t-shirts from Tumbleweed with iconic New Zealand images on them. The designs are hand-printed in Wellington and then the  ink has been heat cured to to ensure durability. The t-shirts are made from high quality, pre-shrunk, 180 GSM pure cotton. Please contact us if we do not have the size you need, we will be able to order it in for you.

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.
