Announcement   Hand-printed original art on eco-friendly clothing. bamboo t-shirts & organic clothing - Natick Mall, Boston MA. Eco clothing, typography Tshirt, customizable t-shirt. Visit www.shopUni-T.com

Why Bamboo & Organic Cottons?
We took great effort to find a shirt that we would feel comfortable selling to the world without causing damage to our beautiful Earth. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and doesn't need insecticides, pesticides, or a complex watering system to grow. It just needs sunlight and rainwater, which it turns into a whole bunch of oxygen - much more than your average tree. And organic cotton is grown using old-school techniques and methods. There are no herbicides or any other chemicals used in the growth of organic cotton, and it's normally rain-fed.

Uni-T is a Boston based, mom start up whose founder wished to share the value of unity with her two kids, and then who know? Maybe the world!
I had a great day out to Boston today. Such a beautiful city. Stop by at my shop Uni-T in the Natick Mall just 15 miles away from downtown Boston blush
To me what really matter is what we do with this time we're given, what we #create and the #passions we share with one another. #Creativity and #selfexpression are universal, accessible to everyone. And in that regard we indeed are all in #unity.

About

T Shirt Designer and Whimsical Abstract Artist

Eujin Kim Neilan of Uni-T is a T-shirt designer, and published children's book illustrator from Boston. Her whimsical abstract art, along with her story book illustration and T-shirt designs appeal to any gender and culture of all ages. This is her story...

"My career kicked off after I finished MFA in illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. For the Masters thesis project, I illustrated a children's book which was published after completion of my project. While I was raising two beautiful children I have published four more books which have received many recognitions and awards.

However, because of self publishing and digital downloads I could no longer just rely on book publishing business. So, in my home studio in Natick, Massachusetts I created many original designs for "Uni-T" line of hand-printed t- shirts. Starting local and small, they sold at farmers and flea markets and crafts fairs. I am so thankful to have had such an amazing reception.

Two years ago, I was contacted by a Group Business Development Representative for the Natick Mall, and was asked if I would be interested in running a cart to sell my books and t- shirts. I was a bit hesitant at first, given that I would have to compete with immense national chain stores. However, after I finally opened a kiosk I realized that many customers seem to be happy and inspired to see my local products at the Mall and felt good about supporting a small business while also being able to have a one-on-one conversation with the artist who made the products they are buying at the Mall. Running a cart was not an easy task given the nature of my business. After selling all day and coming home at 10:00 at night I had to silkscreen more shirts to replace my inventory. Also before I go to work in the morning I need to iron each shirt I made the previous night to set the ink. Somedays I had to work from 6:00 am to 1:00 am.

After working night and day, a kiosk in the Natick Mall soon turned into my very own store called Uni-T! It has been my dream to open a shop/art studio where I can create and sell at the same time. I have been always had this romantic idea of "make & sell". Now, with so much encouragement and support from the Natick Mall I am so thrilled that my dream came true. I was able to open a store where I can silk screen my shirts and paint. Customers will be able to see what it takes to make a product they buy.

Now, Uni-T has grown into an art gallery that contains the work of about thirty different local artists along with my clothing line, books, and original artwork. Uni-T is a beautiful shop that is worth checking out because it is a combination of many different talents, passions and creations in unity.

Just 3 years ago I was selling my shirts in the flea market, hoping not to lose $15.00 I paid for the space. There are so many great artist/artisans out there struggling to make a living from their incredible talent and effort. I am grateful to show it can be more than just a dream."
