The designs of Hand & Shadow pay attention to all the small things, not missing a stray hair or cracked tooth. All garments are printed by hand in East Vancouver. This allows the uniqueness of each print to show in the variance of colour, texture and placement. They are made in small volumes using sustainable, sweatshop free products where possible. The inks used are pigment or bleach based leaving each garment soft to the touch and will not crack or fade.
Inspired by many things, among them the Victorians, nature and natural history, scientific illustration - modern and ancient, museum collections, contemporary craft, and textile art.

The natural world in both it’s blossom and decay exist in tandem – drawing you closer than ever before to the neck of a howling beast or the cracks of a human skull. There is a beauty revealed here. Teeth are mistaken for lace or pearls and hair flows and curls like fine ribbons.
