Behind the Design: Fish Tales

Fish Market in Italy

Being a peninsula, Italy is surrounded by beautiful turquoise seas. Fish and marine life play a major part in Italian culture – from the art to the cuisine. While traveling up the coast, we stopped at a fish market and marveled at how many different types of fish were for sale. We even had a chance to chat with a real fisher-woman! We’re sharing a behind-the-scenes look at some of our favorite graphic tees inspired by Italian sea life.

Behind the Design: Venetian Lace

Colored houses in Burano

In the lagoon that surrounds Venice lies an island named Burano, bespeckled with colorful houses. There’s a legend of an ancient betrothed (engaged) fisherman, who was fishing in the lagoons surrounding the Burano island. On his trip home, he came upon a siren who wouldn’t let him pass and attempted to entice him with her singing. He refused, staying faithful to his love back home. Enchanted by his faithfulness, the siren queen thumped the side of the fisherman’s boat with her tail, creating a wave of foam from which a wedding veil developed. The fisherman brought the veil back home and gifted it to his fiance on the day of their wedding. She was admired and envied by all the young ladies of Burano, who all set out to imitate the lace of the veil. This is the story of how the intricate Burano lace designs were born.
