Earthient is a Green company that has nature lover designs that range from realism and surrealism to absract. They have screen printed and sublimated All Over Prints). 5% of the purchase price of every product will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund. Plus, for every item you purchase, Earthient will plant a tree through the Nation Forest Foundation, at no extra cost to you.
As for the Print Quality, the screen prints are clean and bold, and the All Over Prints (sublimated) are vibrant and flawless. The sublimated prints the ink has great coverage and absorbtion, though along the seams there may be missed gaps but that is normal for this technique and really not that noticeable. I didn't notice any at all. If the apparel is washed inside out in cold water with mild detergent (No Bleach or Harsh Chemicals) and allowed to air dry then the designs should last years.
The All Over Prints are printed on 96% polyester/4% elastane fabric. It is lighter than cotton and extremely soft and smooth.
And for the sizing (All Over Prints, they tend to run larger than anticipated ( which is nothing new in the sublimated clothing industry) and the Screen Printed fit as expected. Tees ranging from XS to 4XL depending on the type.
How did Earthient get started and what is your brand all about?
I started Earthient in 2017 from a pretty simple idea. I'm addicted to tees and buy way more than I need, but I really try to be mindful of the environment as much as possible. It occurred to me that most of the tees I bought were a bit of a mystery, I had no idea where they were from, who manufactured them, just that I liked the design. I thought there had to be a better way, so I began researching shirt manufacturers that are committed to social and environmental standards and decided to try to start a brand that could do better. We want to be a company that can make a difference no matter how small, instead of a corporation sacrificing values for profits.
What are the Earthient ideals?
We want to try to make our products a little bit better for you and the planet, so we have a couple of rules we follow: we use recyclable and biodegradable bags in shipping, water-based and eco-friendly inks in printing, only print on shirts from producers that meet social and environmental standards and all tees (except for all-over print designs) are made of 100% combed and ring-spun cotton.
For every product sold, we plant a tree through the National Forest Foundation to help fight deforestation where it is needed in America’s forests and wetlands. Also 5% of the purchase price of every product sold is donated to the Environmental Defense Fund.
Who designs the tees?
I design the tees as much as I can. I’m not the most artistically inclined so if I have a design idea that’s a bit out of my ability, I will find artists that can help reach that look.
What inspires the tees?
All of our tees are inspired by the world around us, there’s just so much inspiration out there. Some of our tees are just scenes from nature we find beautiful, some are more idealistic, like a factory putting flowers into the atmosphere instead of pollution, a little girl breathing life back into the world, or just minimalist designs encouraging you to get out and explore. Some of our favorites are our fantasy Ocean/Space designs. Like our Birth of a Nebula tee of an octopus’ ink spray forming a nebula or the Earth as a hot air balloon floating through space. There’s just so much natural beauty out there.
How would you classify the tees/designs?
We have a bit of an assortment of designs to try to capture a variety of tastes. Some are minimalist or geometric, some are realistic looking, some are more artistic. We just choose styles that we think best captures the idea we want to share.
