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'm excited to see what you come out with! Great idea for recycling shirts. We don't do enough of that.
Congratulations on your shop!And thanks for all the inspiration and being so amazing, you are the nicest human)
36 minute vlog T^T Saint you
Me encantaaa que sea una marca (para poder abrirla a futuro) con un concepto tan hermoso ❤️ Felicitacionesss
holy cow, the items are almost sold out. Congratulations. What a great way to launch a web shop <3
The shop is lit. If someone needs a larger size like a 2x-4x, will that be an option in the future?
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!
You are always so inspiring, Fran! Tú eres muy inspiradora, Fran! (trying do learn some spanish here hahahah)
ctm que hermosooo!!! Me puse demasiado feliz con la noticia de la tienda en Chileee!! Por fin <3!! Felicitaciones, me encantó todo, desde la forma hasta el fondo. Te admiro caleta 🙂
Fran!!! this is amazing what you’re doing! one t shirt at a time 😌💗
felicitaciones !!!! me encanta como siempre te reinventas. gracias por tanta inspiración siempre :)))) que lindo ver tu fortaleza y tu luz porque le encontraste un sentido más profundo a lo que haces. Gracias
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 !
Congratulations fran…you are the first person who inspired me to start illustration when i was an art student…i learned a lot from you..thank you for everything ..you and your work mean a lot to me ❤
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. 🙂
We have poop….. Lol
Just ordered a t-shirt and stickers! I'm a Patreon too ^_^ Love what you do <3
The site looks great. I love the photos.
It's also your story that makes the difference, you make me feel like I just do something too, even in a small way. All these little stories, make a movement. Good Luck Fran x
What an awesome idea!!!!! Wowowow! Can't wait to buy one when I find one my size!!
when you say "storaged" i can't help but laugh english is so silly… it's stored 🙂
congrats on your new store, fran!
Well done Fran! 😊🌱
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
I love this whole concept so much and I feel very inspired by your idea, your way of working and creating. Now I feel strong to realize own projects, even it takes a lot of time in a one-woman-show!
Greetings form germany, Flora
Just luuuuuuve you and your art! 🥰
Wow. Congratulations, my dear entrepreneurial artist. Thank you for showing all the sweat equity you and Ed put into this venture. It's a great lesson in putting in the work to achieve your dream. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Felicidades Fran! Tengo la mejor suerte de estar de intercambio para cuando la tienda se abra en Chile 😍😍
You absolutely are making a difference! Amazing work, so excited about this idea and project 🙂
You and Ed are so freaking adorable! I'm so excited for you on the launch of your own line of eco-saving clothing! I hope to buy one soon to support you! Wishing you all the best with your new business endeavour. It's so clear you have put your heart and soul into it and you deserve to soar. Also…I gotta know how the pizza was. Any good? I'd totally eat that. 😀
Oh man I love screen printing!! I used to work at a screen printing place back in the day lol I’m so proud of you lady figuring all this stuff out you’re kicking so much butt!!
Fran, you are such an inspiration. Thank you for doing you <3
This is probably the best concept ever! So happy for you!
Fran! I love what you do! You are such an inspiration! I would like to buy one of your books, but can’t see them on your website! Is there a way to get them?!
the white board looks like styrofoam?
fran! you are a favorite human!
Almost all of the shirts are out of stock!! congrats!
Your FAQ is so cute I can't handle it! Especially the cat section 😉
You should definitely check out the Goodwill Outlet in Queens! There's so much clothes and its pay by the pound so it's very very cheap!
God Fran, I don't know how to tell you how awesome you are! You do such amazing work and selling second hand T-shirt redesigned is sooooooo cool!
Oh yeah! Love your t-shirt concept! EXCELLENT!
Love what you’re doing, Fran! Thank you!
I am so so happy for you and also proud of you!! Good luck with your shop. And I’m in love with it’s name ❤️
Fran! I'm very sad because I live in Mexico City and you don't send it here
Fran! Thank you for this video!It is so nice to see a long term project and the process behind it!
Now I want this T shirt!!!))) Great idea!
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.
I didn't finish the video yet, but I want to be sure I put a comment : second hand tshirt?!! OHMY!! THAT'S BRILLIANT!! Why nobody though of that before?!!!
Wonderful, Fran! YOU ARE THRIVING, GIRL!
Fran you're awesome, I love your work and I follow you since you started! I'm soooo happy for you, I mean it <3 This gave me an idea to open a similar shop/business here in Brazil. We NEED to start more projects like this to make a better world.
Fran, me encanta lo que está haciendo, en realidad creo que si haces un gran cambio porque como influencer promueves otras formas de hacer. Felicidades por este gran proyecto, mucho ánimo.
FRAN : you're such an inspiration🌿🌿 making your brand and helping the planet. 🙏 you're a badass! Ordering asap💛🌺
Are you going to sell about to leave novel??
Your laundry outfit is super cute!!

Ahh Fran! It looks so good! I'm so excited for you 🙂
Congratulations Fran!!! you are an awesome human being <3 Wish u all the best with the shop!

Congratulations on your new shop Fran. It’s so nice to see you grow bigger from Etsy. It’s really nice you’re giving those shirts another life. 😊
Omg me encanta todo sobre este proyecto. Y amo que abras una tienda en Chile♥️ felicitaciones!!

Felicitaciones fran!!! espero con ansias la tienda acá en Chile. Saludos!!!
Felicidades por tu nueva tienda,me encanta el nombre y el concepto, además lo de las camisetas de segunda mano me parece una superidea. Deseando ver más diseños en camisetas. 😊
It’s very pleasing to see you doing the thing you really like. Me myself adore painting and eco friendly staff too. So the pleasurness is even doubled 😉 Good luck with all of your ideas, Fran, I believe in you.
So exciting to see all the behind the scenes! I was so happy because the store opened a few days before my birthday and thanks to the quick shipping I was able to receive and wear the amazing “radical” T-shirt on my birthday! I think I might have even seen my T-shirt in this video 😋 so excited to see what else you do with this amazing business! ♥️♥️♥️
Holy moly Fran!You continue to awe and inspire me with all that you manage to do, your ideas and overall completely delightful personality <3Back 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 :BAnywaaaaay… 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 love this idea so much!! I sell designs on Redbubble at the moment but I can't imagine they're that good for the environment really :/ You've inspired me to try and find a more ethical way to sell my designs 🙂 <3
fraaaan i remembered you saying it's difficult to find information on packaging and stuff, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQNe-ujHSJw maybe you'lll find this video useful!
Absolutely in love with your t-shirt idea. You're so inspiring!
I just binge watched a bunch of your videos, you are so amazing and love that you're taking on the challenge of using second hand clothing for your shirts! ❤️
pensaba… en que me gustaría ver como es todo el proceso de serigrafía!!…. podrías hacer un video, curso, o mehh no sé algo con eso!!yo me apuntaría!
Congrats Fran on yet another achievement unlocked! You're such an inspiration! <3
Fran I think you are very fashionable. I LOVE your style.
Also, mas camisetas por favor! I went to buy one and saw they’re all sold out. That’s what I get for catching up with your channel near the end of September.
COMO PUEDO TENER UNA SI ESTOY EN COLOMBIA????? XD
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
Es increíble lo que haces, Fran. Siempre <3
Very nice job! Keep it up!🌹🌺🌸💐🌷
could you please let me know where nice humans tag is from? i need my own for a personal project 🙁
hey there, you really are a beautiful caring human it's so lovely that you use your platform to inspire others. I'd love for you to please look into veganism as this truly is the #1 thing to do for this planet. There's a lot of docos or even people like Leonardo Decaprio and many others who speak openly and are working on the change. Your kind heart would be open to this I am sure <3<3<3
OMG Fran!!!! Primero felicitaciones por tu hermoso trabajo, lo amo! Segundo, necesitas una mesa urgente!!! No quedas muy cansada de la espalda????
Wow you are amazing what an incredible amount of work but they look incredible my favourites are the POOP tshirts..
I TOTALLY SUPPORR WHAT YOU'RE DOING, FRAN! Muy bien!!! 👍👍👍Love the planet! 💚💚💚
Hi Fran, this is so cool! I'd suggest from looking at the website that you are able to search by the sizes and for the sold out ones to go automatically to the bottom of the list. I think if you're using Shopify that should be easy to implement. <3 Nice work love!
¡Hola, Fran! ¿Cómo estás?Recuerda avisarnos a quienes vivimos en Chile cuándo abre la tienda física acá, por fa. Me encantaría tener una Radical una vez que pase un poco todo lo que estamos viviendo.
Un abrazo cariñoso ♡
Se que llego tarde. Pero esto explica muchas cosas…. qué bonito proceso, mucho éxito!
ahhh! such a good idea for the shirts! will cop one of them once I reach my weight goal!
FRAN — You might want to check out the Ethereum community, Particularly colony.io.
I'm also looking to build something larger than myself – like an artists collective. It's a good research point for you. Thanks for the videos.
Empecé a ver este vídeo solo por curiosidad, que me la he pasado pasándome por tu canal todo el día. Pero me he quedado totalmente sorprendida de encontrar este concepto, de verdad me sacaste una sonrisa y espero que te vaya super bien con tu proyecto, es una buenísima idea.
