I have bought from this seller prior to their store opening on Etsy and love her products. This hoody was bought as a Fathers Day present and the response was even better than I thought it would be. It has easily become the favourite item of clothing particularly since the recipient loves to go camping with family. Thank you so much for your designs, and the quality of your products. They are worth every penny.

Making original prints the old fashioned way.
LOST SHAPES is thoughtful, creative design, with an honest upbringing of wholesome crafts, having a good time in the party world of fashion.
Lost Shapes makes quirky and original t-shirts, sweatshirts and other textiles with artisan quality production. Designs are deliberately simple and not-quite-perfect for a confident, retro look.
Every stencil is hand drawn, hand cut, and hand screen printed in the Lost Shapes studio, creating shapes and silhouettes with real warmth and impact. The choice of a water-based ink with intense pigments means the prints really sink into the fabric, giving a depth that isn't found in most mass-produced gear.
Lost Shapes sells from etsy, at good quality artisan markets, and through independent online or real-life shops.
THE ETHICS: FASHION IS A DIRTY BUSINESS
I wouldn't have started this business if I couldn't find decent suppliers of organic, environmentally friendly, fairly traded products to print on. There are plenty of low quality, chemically blasted t-shirts being churned out by exploited workers already.
Most of the Lost Shapes t-shirts and sweatshirts are from the EarthPositive range by Continental Clothing: EarthPositive Apparel is 100% organic with 90% Reduced CO2, and Fair war Foundation approved - they really are working hard to deserve their many ethical and environmental awards. I also print on Continental Clothing's Salvage range - sweatshirts and t-shirts made from recycled organic cotton and recycled polyester - and some of their tencel tops made from eucalyptus fibre. Others are produced by Stanley and Stella clothing, who use only Fair Wear certified organic cotton, or other sustainable fabrics such as tencel or recycled polyester. All fabric used for banners is either organic cotton, linen, or upcycled previously used fabrics.
The ink I use does not contain CFC's, HCFC's, aromatic hydrocarbons, volatile solvents, lead, heavy metals or any toxic chemicals whatsoever, and is suitable for vegans. I do not use photo emulsions for our screens, avoiding the need for solvents in the cleaning process.
Very little power is needed in the world of Lost Shapes, as all drawing, stencil creation and printing is done by hand. All electricity consumed is provided by Ecotricity, so 100% renewable.
I hope to see a day when these standards will be everyone's standards, and Lost Shapes joins in campaigns for better treatment of garment workers and cotton producers.
Owner, Designer, Maker
LOST SHAPES is me, Anna Brindle, working from my home studio in Devizes, Wiltshire. Inspired by everything, but especially old signs, peeling buildings, weird sayings and great art.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders
I occasionally print a batch of t-shirts (min 20) or banners for commission. Please contact me with brief details of what you are considering for an approximate price.
Please see images on individual listing for a size diagram - for best results measure against a top you have already.
These tops can be washed as normal in a washing machine (I recommend 30 degrees to make clothing and the environment more sustainable), and prints can be ironed.
