Through the launch of a line in various styles of eco-t-shirts is planned with printed designs based on different deities, myths and symbols of the Mayan, Aztec Cultures and in ther future: the folk art of the Huichol people.

Our garments will all be ethically produced and made with machinery powered by wind & solar power. Everything will be hand-printed using environmentally safe inks.

- As you will discover from the assets provided on the word doc (little mexico ref_02), I'm looking to simplify the details and I'd like you to add your own unique design flavour.

- re: colour palette: please review the colour palette of the t-shirts that your
design will be printed on.…e=cms&P=19 or http://flashdba4.continental-europe…ductID=104

The print position is open for you to play with but all prints will be at the front side of the t-shirt. Please have a look at the original t-shirt sizes provided, so then the design will be placed and sized accurately.
