I would give it four stars if it hadn't shrunk. I washed gentle cycle in cold water and hung it to dry and it seems like a size smaller. BUT, it's very soft and love the design.
Holdfast Outfitters is based out of my home in West Asheville. The dream of a small print studio started about two years ago, and finally began in the winter of 2011.
I love the mountains of North Carolina, but I grew up by the ocean and I find myself drawn to nautical images, anchors, eagles, whales, etc. I spent a long time moving around from Coast to Coast and finally found Asheville. The name Holdfast comes from the part of kelp that secures it to the bottom of the sea floor, just as Asheville became the place I wanted to be stuck to!
In my love of the ocean and the mountains, I wanted to have a print studio with a lesser impact on the planet. I do so by using water based inks which contain no harsh chemicals and create a 'soft hand' effect on shirts and a soft feel on the skin.
