smoked herring grey and blue lightweight tee shirt
made from a blend of recycled plastic bottles and salvaged organic cotton, these super lightweight 3/4 unisex baseball style shirts are perfect travel companions as they take up so little space. they are so soft they feel as if they have been washed a hundred times. this has fast become my favourite tee shirt.
I love 3/4 sleeves as they are not too warm or too cold and don't need to be pulled up to do endless hand washing. I have been laying mine with long sleeves all winter too.
with a row of hot smoked herring, our shirts are playfully branded with the jollyfishfacebornholm logo. like all of our prints, this gyotaku image was printed from a real fish, in this case a smoked herring.
sizes: available in sizes xs, s, m, l, xl, and xxl
material: salvaged organic cotton and recycled plastic bottles
origin: screen printed in England.
care: cool wash. avoid hot iron on decoration.

printed from a real whole smoked herring using a traditional Japanese art form called gyotaku, or fish rubbing. the fish is brushed with ink then a cloth placed over it and pressed to form a direct print. this print is photographed and forms the basis of our herring designs.
hot smoked herring are a traditional food from our island, Bornholm. the distinctive chimneys of the smokehouses punctuate the landscape. the herring, hung on a rod through the eye are hot smoked over alder wood and turn 'from silver to gold' in the smoking process. all of the lovely wrinkles in the skin come from the smoking process and make for a iconic image.
