Jenske Ebenau’s movement Do Not Think I Am Alone t-shirt collaboration. An international operation crafted to bring a brighter edge to mental health creative commentary.
Giving mental health awareness a fresh kick - being mentally ill is awful enough without us being stuck with muted tones and rainy imagery.
My imagery for this collaboration was heavily inspired by tattoo flash, as well as my own contrary railings against the plights of living with metal health issues. Tattoos are confident badges for the rest of the world to see who you are and what you believe in - these are in bright colours to keep it accessible so the messages can shine through.
Own our setbacks and illnesses, hold no shame in who we are and always believe in ourselves and one another. I see it as a subversive gift really;
These bespoke embroidered shirts featuring original designs will be available for auction - with proceeds going towards MAC UK - www.mac-uk.org - who exist to transform the health, social and economic inequalities of excluded groups. Details of this are to be announced soon.
Check out Jenske’s mission at @donotthinkiamalone on instagram and add your voice to the crowd. Thank you to Jenske for trusting me with her work and allowing me to create for it.
After having upcycled a bootleg tracksuit from eBay.. it was incredible to be asked to refine and stitch [and stitch] the real deal. My tracksuit embellishments are inspired by traditional western tattoo flash and kitsch magic.
Being able to take your favourite imagery and convert it into rich, beautiful stitches is something I revere highly.
Anything can be worked with to create a truly original bespoke patch for yourself or best friend. Gift presentation available upon request, let’s make it truly personal.
Get in touch through the contact page and let’s get creating.
Hugely inspiring large-scale human sculpture commemorating and celebrating the one hundred year mark of women beginning to gain the vote within England.
Bespoke commission for a range of hyper-girly and pony positive patches and badges for saddlepads, hoodies and t-shirts.
All designs are originals. Drawn, photocopied and stitched straight to the brightest, brashest fabrics i’d come across in a while.
Great company run by wonderful women - thank you for being so keen on the insane material choices !
The Levi's Jacket.
Everyone has either got one, or is planning on it.
Here are my vintage levi jacket updates - size XL, peculiarly stained and as faded as could possibly be.
This jacket features both direct to garment and stitched on patches created from a variety of materials.
My favourite pieces on here are the leather rose on the inner and sunset scene on the back - alongside my girlfriend who sits on the arm..
Denim allows such an easy and obvious means of self expression, pick up a jacket of your own and scoot over to my online shop to get stacking.
