Fresh New Tees From Innate & Slow Loris!

INNATE BRAND PHILOSOPHY:

INNATE’s roots grow from the conviction that each and every human is a beautiful, unique, and invaluable member of their community’s infrastructure and should be celebrated by all means.

We are a group of like-minded humans who prescribe to individuality, imagination, and collaboration.

INNATE intends to serve as a conduit to spread the message of peace, positivity and purpose while promoting creative, healthy lifestyles through a fusion of art, music, and fashion.

COMPANY DESCRIPTION

INNATE is a community-oriented, design-driven lifestyle brand serving as a platform for various subcultures to come together in the name of art and a passion for a healthy and creative way of life. Inspired by the absence of a hub amongst an abundance of creativity in it’s original town of Bellingham, WA, INNATE was started with the intention of combining these cultural driving forces into one synergistic platform for various subcultures to communicate, create, and share their passions.

Employing the t-shirt as its messenger, INNATE works with various artists, upcoming and established, to create potent imagery and positive propaganda for the masses.

SLOW LORIS:

Slow Loris came to life in Oakland, California in the spring of 1997. Inside a very small storage room in the basement garage of an old cannery building, the very first t-shirts were printed. After graduating from CCAC in 1998, Slow Loris founder Jessica Lynch left Oakland and returned home to Washington state. Re-locating to Guemes island, Slow Loris continued to thrive, screen printing drawings onto t-shirts, paper and clothing for people around the world, and for touring bands like TV on the Radio, My Brightest Diamond, Karl Blau and The Lonely Forest.

While keeping true to the hand made quality (no computers are ever used for design making) Jessica had her “hands” full and in 2007 teamed up with good friend Arlo Rumpff. Arlo had been a fisherman in the Bering sea, and brought his hard working enthusiasm to Slow Loris just in time. Jessica taught him how to screen print, (he’s better than her now) models most of the shirts on the web site, and deals with a lot of the business side of Slow Loris, a part of the job Jessica was NEVER good at. Team Slow was now complete.

Any average workday consists of drawing, singing, and printing in our solar powered studio, as well as beach walks with a bunch of dogs. There’s also a pig named Marnie-biddles who likes to observe through the windows and get into things. The adopted motto “feeling strong and not in a hurry” reflects the pride Team Slow feels standing behind a quality hand made product for the past thirteen years.

The bag itself is fully machine washable and won’t fade. Weighing in at 1.4 oz and fitting in the palm of your hand when rolled up, they are a great alternative to single use plastic bags.
