Bleeding Heart Dove t shirt by Anthony Radcliffe

£ 29.00

"Nyarlathotep... the crawling chaos... I am the last... I will tell the audient void..." This is my interpretation of the character Nyarlathotep, as described in the 1926 prose poem of the same name. The idea for this story supposedly came to Lovecraft in a dream, the first paragraph of which he claimed to have written whilst still half asleep. In it the world is on the brink of chaos and self destruction when a great and seemingly ancient showman appears out of Egypt, displaying amazing scientific feats using electricity and glass. Nyarlathotep in this story seems to be roughly based on Nikola Tesla, the very prolific and enthusiastic scientist, but the character occurs in other Lovecraft stories, each time taking on a different form and role. This has led many Lovecraft scholars to the conclusion that the character is a shape-shifter of some kind; but Lovecraft never confirmed this for sure.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
