We Are Freo Tees | Natalia Print
We have collaborated with 13 local, independent, and interdisciplinary artists as part of our 'We Are Freo' collection to bring you a one-of-a-kind, limited run of ANJELMS Project T-shirts. Each T-shirt is designed with the artist’s interpretation and personal connection to Fremantle city and is printed on Earth Positive T-shirts by Ethical Tees.
Ethical Tees are based in Sydney Australia and all products are made by the team there. Ethical Tees print using water-based eco-friendly and vegan ink, so there are no toxic plastic kinks or harmful resin in these products! The T-shirts themselves are produced by clothing suppliers that offer fair trade fair labour and sweatshop-free working conditions. They use socially responsible suppliers and sustainable printing practices and pledge 1% of their total sales back to the planet to preserve and restore the environment. EarthPositive® is produced exclusively from organic Indian cotton, and the entire production process is controlled and certified in accordance with the latest version of GOTS.
All products are labelled as Organic. 100% of the EarthPositive® production undergoes annual audits to comply with the FWF Code of Labour Practices in accordance with the International Labour Organisation’s conventions. EarthPositive® is made in manufacturing facilities powered by green renewable energy, from low-impact raw materials. The carbon footprint of EarthPositive® products has been reduced by some 90% and the calculations were certified under the PAS2050 standard by the Carbon Trust in the UK between 2007-2009.
Natalia Fidyka is a psychologist by trade and has been creating art since she can remember. A mixed media artist with Polish heritage, the iconography of her Madonna design is one that has influenced her from a young age – first remembering seeing it on a family trip to Czestochowa. As an icon that also represents Fremantle, the blessing of the fleet holds the icon of the Black Madonna on parade every year around October (which has just happened) to wish the fishers from many Migrant European backgrounds well on their voyages from the Fremantle fishing boat harbour. Surrounded by seagulls and Esplanade Park's iconic Norfolk Pine trees, Natalia’s design is one that is visibly Fremantle for so many who know it.
