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:

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.

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.

This Shirt is Temporarily Unavailable Sorry, we're not printing this one at the moment. Check back tomorrow when the catalog re-opens.
