Each season, our in house artists create unique graphics for tees. They paint, sketch, stamp and piece together the graphics you love. We take pride in not only our design process, but in the story behind each graphic. Each destination we travel to, we work to represent a handful of native animals. We love to learn about their behavior and habitats. We know our little citizens love animals, too! Patagonia is a land rich with animals, many of them relatively unknown to our own little citizens. The animals in Patagonia and throughout South America inspired and influenced the design of our newest graphics. Read on to see the graphics up close and learn about the animals behind them.

Flowers are everywhere in Buenos Aires. You’ll see them in the obvious places, parks, trees that line streets and in yards…but also in places you might not expect. You’ll find floral designs adorning signage (called filetado), sculptures and restaurant facades. You’ll see them in the textiles, the ceramics and embroidery. When our team traveled to Buenos Aires, they came back with pictures of the beautiful designs they found throughout the city. Learn about how the florals they saw inspired our designs for many of our baby girl pieces.
We’re rolling out a new style for out littlest citizens—reversible hoodies, pants and wrap rompers for boys and girls. When you have two outfits in one, those “oops” moments aren’t quite as big of a deal.
On our trip through Argentina, we had the pleasure of staying at La Candelaria del Monte, a fully working estancia in the Las Pampas region of Argentina. We met the owner, a real-life South American gaucho (cowboy), named Sebastián Goñi. Sebastián shared with us what it’s like to live on an estancia, and all the work that goes into running the farm. This September, you will find many graphics and prints inspired by the estancia itself: gauchos, criollo horses, open fields and trails. Our hope is that all little citizens feel the spirit of estancia life in their own home through these designs.
This fall, we’re bringing a sporty edge to outfitting. Little citizens of all ages, boys and girls, will be able to be able to romp around freely in the newest Tea styles. City life calls for clothing that allows little ones run around without apprehension. Influenced by the versatility we saw in La Paz, you’ll find our fall styles are suitable for any occasion. Love the classic sporty look of a baseball tee? We’ve got just what you’re looking for in classic Tea prints.
Modern India takes great care and pride to retain the extraordinary refinement of its many palaces, old temples and ancient forts. We’ve fondly named our newest delivery, Paisley Palace. From the stunning marble dome of the Taj Mahal to the ornate arches of the Mysore Palace to the spectacular paintings that adorn the Amer Fort, there is no lack of inspiration in the architecture in India. Many of our designs in this collection are named after these great palaces! Take a look at the history of these great sites to better understand the story behind the design.
The Amer Fort was built by the conqueror Raja Man Singh who ruled from 1590-1614 AD. On our visit here, we rode painted elephants and admired the red curtains that framed the fort. We were inspired by the elaborate painted motifs on the walls and ceilings in the Jaipur City Palace.
