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.

    Unusual design and color. Very striking.

    Well, I guess I am Georgie’s Number 1 fan! I liked this t-shirt so much (and my daughter did too...I could tell that mine was going to be contraband in luggage headed off to college), that I got another. Even with the heavy wardrobe edit on my daughter’s way to school, this arrived in time for her to pack it right on top! These designs are perfect and the cotton is soft but heavy...absolutely cross generational favorites guaranteed (like magic!) to get compliments or start a conversation. Thank you so much for these elegant designs and super high quality garments!!!

    Wow, such a cool garment! I love this dramatic image and the slight variations in the color-lifted areas with the sharp outlines of the “backlit” birds...I got the medium this time (my second purchase after loving the first so much!) for a more fitted professional look and can’t wait to wear this in the fall with a skirt and boots! Thank you so much for your beautiful textiles and shop!

    This is insanely gorgeous!!! I wasn’t expecting the beautiful soft modulation of the design from the discharge technique! It is masterfully done with sharp edges around the egg and an almost echo of the speckles in the color lifted areas...a soft grey brown. I am just in love with it...and was about to buy other designs so I hope this shop comes back after the awful global situation we find ourselves in right now. This is a new favorite garment! Thank you for your amazing sensibility and gorgeous designs!!!

    One bad A$$ Tshirt💀
    👁 🧡 IT SO MUCH.
    Went back and forth about sizing with the shops owner, told her how I wanted it to fit, she did an amazing job making it happen. The Tshirt is crazy cool and great quality.
    Will be buying here again!!!

    So glad to see Georgie is still making this design. I bought one several years ago and I still wear it all the time, I am going to wear it to death. My new one came in the mail and it's just as beautiful as the original. Many thanks!
