There’s something just a little bit magical about the moment you step into the wilds of tropical land. It might be the climate and unruly greenery that makes you think of more Jurassic, primordial times. Yet, tropical islands remain the stuff of paradise. Warm azul waters, vibrant plant life, minimal clothing required, and beautiful sunny days–all ingredients for a good time. Join the ranks of the immaculate advocates in an immaculate jungle that keeps it simple, calling you to the easy pleasures of island life, all laid out on one of our tropically ready, napping-soft Triblend T-shirts.
The general style of the piece is realistic, yet measured in the depiction of the flora. The restrained detailing in the floral and leaf elements creates many open spaces–not too much ink laid down–for an airy composition that feels clean, unblemished, and lightweight. The thin line weight contributes to the delicate elegance of the line work, creating an almost faerie-like whimsy to the piece. One can easily be musing on a fairy tale garden while looking at the artwork. At the individual plant level, you can see horticultural specimens like lilies, ferns, orchids, and elephantine sized leaves. It’s a vigorous jungle scene that might greet a tropical trailblazer in the bush. Contrasting with the lightweight organic plant forms are the bold, geometric shapes of the modernist sans-serif lettering, suggesting a tension between nature and artifice. The deep inks of the letter glyphs create a focal point, even as the plants seem to overgrow and hide what’s written. It’s a battle between the works of man and the ceaseless growth of the natural world being illustrated. The partial obscuring of the letter forms also creates a 3D illusory effect, producing a sense of depth in a two-dimensions. The meaning of the words points to a sort of movement, a spirit of the people for those in search of something clean and simple. Finally, the choice of a single color tone emphasizes refinement and focus on essentials–just a nice, balanced line drawing.
This design is tailored for our darker colored T-shirts. We also have a version of the same design with black ink for our light colored Triblend T-shirts.

How to Care for Your Sweet ShirtMachine wash cold inside out to protect the print, no bleach. Pretreatment may remain on your made-to-order shirt which will add a harder, rougher texture (it's to help the print look good), the first wash will remove it and make everything nice and soft. Tumble dry low. Iron low, but avoid print.
