Congratulations Fran! I love that you're using second hand t-shirts and helping the environment!

Buying all of the shirts second hand is such a great and inspiring idea! I love that! The "Radical" shirt is awesome – I love how your style has evolved. Good job!!! <3

All the best to you and your new shop! 💚 I absolutely love the idea of prolonging the lives of t-shirts, especially with your rad designs. I hope to get a hold of one and wear it "loud and proud" here in Sweden! 😸

I have a small business and I am SUPER inspired by the idea of re-purposing clothing so it doesn't end in a landfill. I hope this becomes a movement in the art community.

I absolutely love this T-shirt idea! I can't even express how much I love this idea! It is wonderful how you can give an old shirt a new life! I wish you all the best and I hope to be able to purchase a T-shirt soon!

I LOVE THIS. Procederé a escribir en español pq es más fácil expresarme y sé que me vas a entender e.e Tuve una idea así hace años, pero en vez de dibujar sobre la prenda (pq para eso soy un queso y ya arruine mucha ropa), mi idea es modernizar la ropa. Este año arranque corte y confección, así que a medida que siga aprendiendo no voy a tener más excusas. También hice un taller de bordado y muero por empezar a darles mi estilo y nueva vida a la ropa de segunda mano ♥ También hago accesorios, pero eso es otra cosa jaja
Muchísimo éxito, un saludo desde Argentina !

Hi, Fran! Your entire adventure is so wonderful! 🙂 I’d maybe suggest that you make a 100% polyester collection? Because given that polyester is plastic, extending the life of those might have a bigger impact than cotton… but of course cotton is much nicer to wear and is breathable, so I understand if you stick to cotton. Second question: in France they have a program called “legumes moches” (ugly vegetables) they’re sold s bit cheaper, so maybe you could sell the stained T-shirt’s at a lower price so you don’t lose the materials?
And, finally, get a steamer to help you with the T-shirt’s, haha! Or maybe take them to be washed professionally, it may help you a lot with the timing…and maybe one clothing rack for each size will help you to sort the sizes as soon as you buy them, so you’ll never run away of space! 🙂

It would be so nice if the @sorrygirls to help you to make over your space and optimize it for your workflow… I think we should start a campaign!

Love your work, your determination and your good humor! I’m so proud of you, Fran. There’s so many years I’ve been following now, is good to see your illustrations evolving and being used in other media!

Love, love ❤️🥰🥰❤️✨💪🏼⭐️ keep shining. You’re for sure a nice human. 🙂

I had the same idea in summer of last year but due to the fact that I don't have space to hold inventory, I didn't pursue it further. You mentioned possibly including other artists in your store and I'd love to be considered in the future. I currently sell on Etsy and use a dropshipping provider but would like to eventually move away from that and become a more sustainable brand. The only part that is at the moment "sustainable" is that I use 100% cotton tees and every design is limited print (only 20 per design are printed) to avoid overproduction and waste. I'm so happy for your and the launch of your website, I've followed you since you first moved to the UK and am super proud to be a longtime subscriber. Good luck!
p.s. my website is wightmodern.com

Hola Fran! me mega encantó esto, siempre has sido una gran inspiración para mi! Yo también soy artista visual y tengo una pequeña linea de playeras, intenté comprarlas second hand e imprimirlas pero la ciudad donde vivía no tenía una gran selección de thrift stores, ahora vivo en México y también he estado buscando alternativas para poder hacer playeras de una manera más ética, creo que volveré a intentar conseguirlas second hand, me has regresado las ganas de hacerlo. Para ser la primera vez que haces serigrafía está excelente! Mucha suerte y muchas felicidades con el lanzamiento de tu tienda. Un abrazo.

Wooow!!! enhorabuena Fran! es increible que hayas hecho todo eso tu sola! Me has recordado la época en la que trabajaba en una tienda de estampado de camisetas, era superdivertido, pero pasaba mucho calor con la plancha jajjaja, por cierto, teníamos un aparato para doblar las camisetas superrapido y quedaban perfectas, te vendría guay, me estaba dando toc viendo las camisetas sin doblar perfectamente jajjajajaaja! Te deseo lo mejor con la tienda, pero no la necesitas, te va a ir genial!!! te lo mereces! Gracias por compartir el proceso.

Holy moly Fran!
You continue to awe and inspire me with all that you manage to do, your ideas and overall completely delightful personality <3
Back in the early 2000s in my teenage years I used to doodle and paint on my backpacks and jeans, and later made a few handpainted tshirts as gifts for people and maaaaaan it was so much fun. I also remember there being a store in Toronto that has since disappeared called "Preloved" that would make new clothes out of second-hand clothes, or at least the material from them and I remember even then thinking that that was a GENIUS idea.
And now, here's you, another freaking GENIUS for a new age! I am so so so glad, and even though I am an internet stranger I am SO PROUD of you for doing this, because maaaan, it's such a wonderful idea and our world sorely needs ideas like these.
Even though you insist that you're not doing that much by creating and launching these shirts, I really think you are doing a tremendous amount. Because I know that I already definitely want one of your shirts; and I know, now, in a clearer way than ever I also definitely want to do something similar down the road when I eventually get my own art business off the ground and out of my hermit cave :B
Anywaaaaay… apologies for the paragraph of gushing, but this video, your journey and in all honesty just you have been and are SUCH a joy to watch <3 <3 <3 Well done!

Todo me encanta, yo tengo las mismas preocupaciones sobre la moda, el consumismo y el medio ambiente. Solo te compartiría una reflexión, las camisentas de algodón al llegar a los basureros es más fácil que se degraden, el verdadero problema son las de telas sintéticas o derivadas del petróleo, esas son las que no queremos que lleguen a los basureros. Gracias por todo.

I am so very excited and inspired by this and by you!
I have myself had these same thoughts, wanting to find cool designs printed on second hand t-shirts, because I love wearing cool artsy t-shirts but I don't love the textile industry!
I also found that it's not possible to order prints on second hand tshirts, and realized I would have to print it myself. So I have been collecting t-shirts and (re)learning to screenprint, but I got a bit stuck in the process (mostly because I want to print on black t-shirts) and the project have been paused for a while. Now you have inspired me to get back into it! I need to do this, we need more of this in the world!
It's also inspiring to see that people actually are willing to pay for this, and all your tshirts are selling out! You have a much larger following than me, but I want to give it a shot anyway 🙂
Keep up the amazing work and thank you for the inspiration! <3
