New nature t-shirt series designs

nature series t-shirts by Origin68

It's been a while since we released some new tees, so we've gone mad and released three at the same time! We were feeling pretty inspired by all things nature related, so we decided to put a little collection together using that as the theme. We've even roped in a few friends to design them.

First up in TREES by our longtime friend Tilman from Geometry Daily. In his classic style he's come up with some minimal tree designs. So simple, but so clever.

Second is PLANTS by Will Scobie. We have wanted to work with Will for a while now, and once we had decided on the nature theme we thought his iconic style would be perfect. We love these little abstract plant studies.

Last up is our own Origin68 MOUNTAINS design. A perfect little reminder of those lazy summer days wandering through the countryside.


Kids Human Being t-shirts & babygrows!

This won't surprise you! A lot of our friends have pestered us for a few years now about doing some of our most famous designs on child friendly apparel. And for a long while we said; "no chance, we're too cool for school". Now, for no apparent reason, we've changed our minds!

OK OK you're too wise for that. We just needed Origin68 to cloth our own babies! We thought that the Human Being range would be ideal for the job - after all babies are humans too!

We've got a range of sizes of Babygrows and we've also got some Human Being black Kids T-shirts. Perfect for your own mini Origin68 fans!

As with all Origin68 clothing, all three shirts are hand printed in the UK on a climate neutral 100% organic cotton t-shirt.


URU Design - Danish designed organic socks.

Hot on the heels (pun intended) of our first batch of socks, we are extremely pleased to be able to introduce our favourite Danish sock producer, URU, into the Origin68 stable. Or should that be manger? Either way, URU have taken a slightly different approach to socks - they don't believe in the conformity of the pairs system. Embrace the anarchy of the solo sock!

Danish design is about creating aesthetic products based on Scandinavian values such as functionality, simplicity, minimalism. URU's ambition is to create Danish design combined with practical innovation and quality materials. Innovation means functional products that make life easier and more enjoyable. Our products provide tangible additional features such as more comfort, better functionality, daily ease of use or a combination. Quality is a matter of using the best possible environmental friendly and sustainable material with social responsibility.


Check them out for yourselves.


New 'Shapes' series t-shirts

We have a trio of lovely new t-shirts ready for summer deployment. You could think of it as a Making Shapes E.P. as we explore some interesting geometric themes. 

First up is Equals. Here at Origin68 we believe that everyone is an equal regardless of gender, race, religion or whatever else people might use to divide us. We are infinitely stronger together regardless of what some of our politicians might think! #Brexit

Next we have Lazy Days by friend of Origin68 Joe Trickett. Joe's geometric triptych design put us in mind of hot lazy days by the pool, overlooked by an epic mountain-scape. For anyone who's been to Palm Springs; a bit like that! Guess that makes Joe our resident Hockney!

Finally we have Shapes. Triangles are our favourite shapes.... But we still like squares and circles too! This tessellation shows that nicely, as it interplays between the different geometric structures and their patterns. We like to think that it's a representation of a sound... A big bang if you will!

As with all Origin68 clothing, all three shirts are hand printed in the UK on a climate neutral 100% organic cotton t-shirt.
