Earthient Brand Review.

Earthient Screenshot

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.

Earthient Interview:

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.

What Shipping options do you offer?

We ship through USPS and UPS depending on how quickly you want your order. We offer free shipping on all domestic orders over $50!

Is there anything else you want people to know about your brand?

We’re still growing so we continue to add new products and designs as quickly as we can and will be on the lookout for new ways that we can make a difference. We custom print your product as soon as you order it and we offer free 30 day returns in case you don’t love your purchase. Just reach out to us at any time, we love hearing from people and want to make sure you are satisfied with your order. At this time we also have hats and tote bags along with tees but stay tuned for more as we grow!

The review breakdown of their Subimated Printed products are as follows:

Rising Hoodie Design by JUN087

Rising Hoodie Design Review.

This Rising Hoodie design is for the astronomers in the world. This earth scene shirt will make a great gift for any stargazer.

The concept is to show Earth Rising on the horizon rather than the moon or sun. There are trees so its like viewing earth from earth but a different earth. The concept is everything for this design. Surreal and it makes you think. Twists make things interesting and this is definitely that.

Now for the artwork, the style makes great use of negative space. Letting the color be the subject matter and the Black be the foreground and midground.

As for the Print, this turned out fair but not great. It is not 100% to the thumbnail partly due to variations in monitor settings. However it is muted quite a bit suggesting more saturation was needed. These photos are also Low-Res as my usual camera is unavailable at the moment.

Surprise Attack Shirt Design by Alchemist.

Surprise Attack Shirt Design Review.

The Surprise Attack shirt design is for the people into nature, and wolves.

The concept for the Surprise Attack Shirt is simply to show a pack of wolves backed by the Northern Lights. Other than that obvious observation, there isn't much to go on. The artwork is where real story lies.

As for the artwork, it's style is different, "messy" is the word that I'd use to describe it. Therefore, it is a bit different than the rest of shirts reviewed here. For instance, the style makes the wolves seem more like spirits or apparitions rather than actual flesh, Fur, and blood. Even though they are not spirits. It is due to the way that they are reflecting the Northen Lights. Also, the colors being what I would describe as neon Teal and Pink are an extremely unusual combination that aside from some 80's throwbacks you do not see too often in other themes. with that stated, there is an odd beauty that possesses this piece. Those colors do fall out of gamut for the final print but the effects are the same.

As for the Print, we went with a hoodie as we felt that this design deserved a large print. It is extremely muted and washed out compared to the DBH thumbnail of the design. At least for the Pinks and Teals. This time it is the fault of the designer and not DBH. As the designer chose colors that are on the RGB scale but not the CMYK scale which fall out of gamut. Therefore, we cannot recommend this cool design for apparel as a result. The Hoodie is comfy and cozy. As for tees it would print the same muted colors. Design By Humans Still offers plenty of attractive and printable designs to choose instead.

Is available on T-shirts, Sweatshirts, Hoodies, Tank Tops, Baseball Tee, Phones Cases, Art Prints. Black and Navy are the fabric color choices available for the Hoodie which are appropriate but Charcoal and other night-like colors would also be nice. Slate Blue is also available for the tees.

Wolf Spirit Tee Design By andreahrnjak.

Wolf Spirit Tee Design Review.

The Wolf Spirit tee design is for the people into nature, spirituality, and wolves.

The concept for the Wolf Spirit tee is to show a young woman's face surrounded by nature elements. For instance, her head is in the "above" placement which suggest that she is a goddess (probably Lupa) or as the title indicates a spirit. While the girl appears to be Caucasian, there is a strong Native American vibe to her. The first thing that you will notice is the girl herself, she has this serious expression on her face, such as don't mess with her. The next thing you might notice is that her eye makeup. Which almost looks like it ran via tears but she is not crying. Finally, you will see some pine trees and White wolves under her long purple hair and protection.

As for the artwork, it has a soft touch. There is intricate details with the woman's hair and eyes that were laid down lightly. The effects of which looks like it took a long time create. Take note of the soft palette of Pink, Purple, and White which set the mood, giving it an early morning type of feel.

As for the Print, we went with a hoodie as we felt that this design deserved a large print. It is a bit muted compared to the DBH thumbnail of the design. At least for the White and Violets. This probably because we went with Black for the fabric color choice. We'd recommend that this design be printed on a lighter color for blending purposes as opposed to contrast on hoodies. The Hoodie is comfy and cozy. As for tees it should print fine and much bolder based on our experience with DBH.

Yin Yang Tree Tee Design by Michael McGloin

Yin Yang Tree Tee Design Review.

The Yin Yang Tree tee design is for the spiritualists and nature lovers. Such as anyone that seeks harmony inside and out or who wants to be one with nature. It reflects duality with clarity and definition.

The tree that is illustrated is so ideal and perfect that it only can exist as a concept. It looks mystical, peaceful and cool.

The concept is of an ancient tree that is the embodiment of the universal ideals and laws of both the physical world and the spiritual realm, especially of Light and Dark. The Yin and Yang symbol is in the branches and leaves right where the shaded and midtoned areas meet. It couldn't be the extremes of pure light and dark in the middle (due to the distance)so Michael found a workaround. It may or may not be an original concept depending on what aspect you take into consideration. Meaning that there is the reverse, where a Yin Yang consists of trees inside it.

As for the artwork, the colors and textures are so realistic that it looks like a photograph. The most impressive thing about this artistically aside from the intricate details is how the designer uses the concept of light to shine in front of and behind (and to both sides with the same angels) the tree rather than in just one direction like a flashlight beam. It looks damn cool but this design leaves me wanting more balance and symmetry for once, I want to see dark both in the front and back of the tree (and to the sides) for the light to travel through. Not just light inside daylight. For example, like the stars in the dark spot in the light half of the Yin Yang. Regardless, the art is quite beautiful and impressive.

This is a great casual shirt to wear anywhere especially while hiking or meditating.

Shark Forest Tee Design by Artemple

Shark Forest Tee Design Review.

The Shark Forest tee is for shark lovers and those that like the strange. This surreal tee leaves lots to the imagination. Such as trying to figure out what exactly is going on in this scene. Did the forest get submerged into the ocean or did sharks suddenly learn to fly. I, for one, welcome our new shark overlords but either way some mad scientist somewhere needs to pay!!!

There is something alien-like to this design, a feeling like something's not quite right.

The artwork really does not need an explanation (even though it would be nice) as it just looks badass. This dreamlike or rather nightmarish scenario lures the viewer in a car wreck, they can't help but to look and not look away. They want to know too!

Artemple created this otherworldly effect by silhouetting the trees and backing them with an odd mix of cool and warm colors. By placing normal looking sharks behaving as they would naturally but in a completely different landscape something magical happens. This creates the "Is it on land or in the water?" question and makes it blurred and unanswered.

The Shark Forest design makes for a great casual shirt to be worn anytime and anywhere especially during Shark Week.

Lapwing Sunset Tee Design by helgram

Lapwing Sunset Tee Design Review.

The Lapwing Sunset tee design is layered to say the least. It is like buying two designs in one, which is very economical. There is the lapwings doing their thing in the center of the tee and then there is the ominous lion head that is made of up the all the other details including the lapwings which make the lion's nose and mouth. There is a strong one-with-nature vibe with this artwork as well as there is more to life than what we. Layered designs are often the best and most under appreciated pieces of art in existence. Maybe that is because at first glance, which most people seem to give is just a glance, people do not see everything that the art has to offer. So they pass it by not realizing that there is so much more to it.

The details make this design great. It is not perfectly symmetrical as that would ruin the naturalness of the concept. The artist known as helgram meticulously added sun ray after sun ray and grass blade after grass blade individually to create this awe inspiring effect.

This is artwork is available on some kid sizes though kids may not appreciate the complexity of this design as much as adults would.

Everything is Gold Tee Design by Radscoolian

Everything is Gold Tee Design Review.

The Everything is Gold tee reflects nature in its most fundamental and mathematical beauty. The Golden Ratio and the Golden Spiral are evident in life and the cosmos. As a result it has found its way in art and aesthetics. Leonardo da Vinci's work implemented these Golden Formulas and serve as prime examples of this.

If you look closely enough, everything will show the pattern at some level. Radscoolian shows the pattern on a larger, everything-is-connected-scale on this forest themed shirt. Using a forced perspective it shows how small and seemingly insignificant we all are in the grand scheme of things.

As a result there is an almost spiritual aspect to this design. It will make a great gift for mathematicians, artists and nature enthusiasts.

The Everything is Gold design makes for a great casual shirt. It can be worn virtually anywhere. Museums, School, or in the woods just to name some relevant places.

Four Seasons In One Day Tee Design by PixelPants

Four Seasons In One Day Tee Design Review.

The Four Seasons In One Day tee design is about change and changes and embracing that changes. The cycles that life earth and its lifeforms go through is best represented by the four seasons of a year. PixelPants realizes this.
There are tons of tees out there relating to the seasons but this one stands out from the rest of the pile. The focal point of the leaf shape creating the sky opening is the part that ties everything together and gives this design its edge.
Things grow. They grow apart. They start out one way then they shift directions. They become unrecognizable from what they started as. And then sadly they die. But change is the one thing that is certain and it is what everything has in common. Time is about living and observing those changes. The Four Seasons In One Day tee gives us an easy to understand visual representation of being this witness, year round. Think about that for a second. This colorful design is always in style be it Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter.
This artwork is available on children's apparel so consider that when shopping for school clothes.
