We Are Freo Tees | Ship 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.
Sonia Beato is a local independent ceramic artist who has a strong interest in the beauty of rocks and the work of Gustav Klimt. The Ship design represents the diversity and vibrancy of migrant workers in Fremantle and tells the story of Sonia’s connection to the heritage of her home in North Fremantle. The Ship sketch was on the original plaster ceiling in her family’s living room, as the original owner was a sea captain married to an Anglo-Indian woman. The sketch was of a Portuguese Caravel ship, where Sonia is originally from. The symbolism of the ship has such significance in Sonia’s life, that she has mosaiced a ship on the front step of her home.
