Song Thrush t shirt by Ella Johnston

£ 29.00

The original of this drawing is unusually large, A1. This contributes to the reproduction of fine detail in the image on the shirt. The Song Thrush is a user of tools, for example they employ stones as anvils to break open the shells of snails. As a juvenile they are vulnerable to predation because from a very early age they leave the nest to be fed on the ground. Survival is a matter of hiding and distraction delivered by watchful parents. At this stage they are all legs, feet and beak. A nesting pair is a delight to have in a garden, they are harmoniously vocal and quite bold.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
