About

Putting one foot in front of the other ...

I opened Zylkatees in 2008 with the desire to combine my love of drawing and hand crafting with my sensibility for fashion, molded by more than a decade in front of the lens and walking the runway for fashion luminaries such as Giorgio Armani, Prada, Comme des Garcons, Valentino and many others.

While traveling as a model, I would always carry little notepads, filling them with lots of small drawings and doodles. It was my way of making time pass while waiting for my turn on photo shoots or waiting in airport lounges for the plane to take off. It was not until I met my husband years later that the thought of opening my own shop became a conscious one. It was his encouragement to make use of those doodle drawings that prompted me to take up screen-printing.

Valuing quality craftsmanship, I place great importance on providing my customers with premium products and services. I only use ethically manufactured Sweatshop-Free merchandise obtained from companies with socially responsible practices. All of my inks are water-based and 100% solvent free.

I am a self-taught artist and all aspects of my creative process are performed by me in my Studio in Brooklyn.

Love, create and be most fabulous.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Please note that I cannot offer sizing customization, as I do not make the clothing. I am a screen printer. Thank you for understanding.

Care instructions

No two t-shirts will be exactly alike as they are hand screen printed, one at a time.
I print with water-based inks. I highly recommend hand-washing inside out and line drying these t shirts. In this way you will prolong the color brilliance of the design and the t shirt it self. The environment and the t shirt will appreciate the gentle treatment.

Production Time

Need it in a hurry? Please let me know right away! Otherwise the following will apply: I only start working on an order once I have received payment. Please allow for 7 days production time, on an average it usually only takes 5 days or less. I am a great believer in communication so whatever the case I will contact you to advise you if there are unexpected delays. If in doubt please contact me!

Where is it made?

All screen printing is done in house in my printing studio in Cambria Heights, New York.

Blank t shirts are made by Alternative Apparel, all of their factories are in accordance with the Fair Labor Association (FLA) Workplace Code of Conduct.
