Alexandra tee shirt by Anne Anderson



The artwork:

Anne Anderson A.S.U Anne was born in Edinburgh in 1950. There she completed her education. She sold her first commissioned work at the tender age of thirteen. In her adult life she travelled and painted extensively in the UK and United States. She spent the remainder of her years in the coastal village of Ballywalter, in Northern Ireland. Despite severe lifelong illness, she maintained painting and continued to ‘grow’ as an artist. She was the ONLY artist ever allowed access to Stormont and its Great Hall, to paint, since Stormont was build, when the original architect did some pencil sketches. She completed around 14 major works of the Great Hall. She was to host a solo exhibition there when she had completed 22 works to hang on the 22 panels of the Great Hall; unfortunately she passed away in 2007, before the exhibition could take place. A woman of great intellect, Anne always regretted allowing her mother to prevent her from taking up a place at the Edinburgh College of Art, where she was awarded a Sponsorship position, before she’d even completed her secondary education. As a result she became very competitive, especially with those who had a more privileged Artistic and Educational background. When she saw a fellow artist’s interpretation of some freshwater fish, at a local exhibition, she thought that she might have a go herself…

The shirts:

These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with cool-max-image-e1485361440757.png fibres ring spun into yarns manufactured exclusively for WeAdmire. These yarns are then knitted into a single jersey fabric suitable for t shirts.

The CoolMax bit exploits the surface tension of water to wick moisture from your skin. It works through micro channels engineered into the profile of the fibre. These channels are physical attributes, they are there for the life of the fibre.

The Fresh FX bit embeds a silver salt in the molecular structure of the fibre that stops the propagation of bacteria which, left unchecked, ultimately cause a sour odour. Because the silver salt is embedded within the fibre it, like the wicking, is similarly permanent; it will not leech out with wear and washing.

These attributes deliver shirts that remain cool and dry almost regardless of what you might do in them and similarly they remain fresh. And the ongoing performance of the fabric is guaranteed. This is important, these shirts will become your favourite items of apparel, you will want to wear your shirts again and again.

These shirts are marvellous to travel with, they stay fresh if you don’t have the chance to wash them, they wash easily when you do have the chance, and they dry super quickly. There is also a very useful side effect to all this: our shirts keep anything you wear on top of them and what you might wear after wearing them fresher too.

The cut and fit and sizing of these shirts is exclusive to us and was specified by Anastasia Vouyouka, a published guru of fit in the fashion industry.

The feel of the very best natural fibre shirts you have experienced with the performance of the fibres that set the benchmarks for wicking and freshness. It is very unlikely you will have experienced this level of technical performance in a decorated t shirt before.
