Welcome to the THREE Erin Cadigan community!

We are a sustainable t-shirt company striving to employ the best environmental methods and socially responsible practices. We require information and certification on both from our entire supply chain. We create our own recycled and recyclable tags and packaging.

All items are hand drawn by me, Erin.

All tshirts are hand pulled by me on a table top set up in my basement studio. I use only water based inks. Water based inks and table top printing allow for more slight variation and coverage per shirt.

Some shirts need multiple screens but even with the one screen tee, images are placed on the shirt using manual hand registration methods. These methods allow my shirts to be more one of a kind, with slight variation in the prints relationship with both the shirt and other images.

We keep our most popular styles and sizes in stock, occasionally a shirt style or size is not in house when the order is placed. Popular styles sell out and some sizes we don't have a deep stock of. We let you know immediately and get the item in asap. Generally we always have Mens in XL and L, Unisex in Large and Med and WOMENS in S, M, L, XL when an order is placed.

STORY
*************************
THREE by designer and illustrator Erin Cadigan (me!) was started in the summer of 1997. That summer I made a hundred shirts printed with the design of an alien sitting like a Buddha over the earth and moon with the words "i believe". I sold them while traveling around the country, seeing live music and living in my van. The brand has grown slowly and organically over the past fourteen years. Each year while traveling
I would release a new limited edition shirt, eventually adding prints and a pendant. Every design was based on reading I did about science, religion, cultures and aliens. Every design had a meaning.

Eventually I lost the ability to travel as much as the pressures of my fashion career intensified. While I loved designing; the wasteful attitude of the industry, restrictions of 9 to 5 and having a boss were so not me. After 6 years in the industry I quit my well paid head design position and went back to my roots. This means focusing on what I believe in: design with meaning, sustainable practices, freedom and making cool shirts.

I hope these things mean something to you as well! I want you to have a product you can believe in and enjoy as much as I enjoy making it!
