Seattle artist and muralist, Henry, has teamed up with 1201 Apparel to release a collection of exclusive graphic tees featuring his work, which benefit the locally founded non-profit organization One Day’s Wages. You may recognize Henry’s work on the sides of many buildings and various structures around the Seattle, but this is his first time having his work feature in the apparel space. By collaborating with 1201 Apparel, all Henry’s tees and prints sold at www.1201apparel.com will contribute $5.00 directly to One Day’s Wages to aid their efforts in alleviating extreme global poverty.
1201 was first born out of a “desire to facilitate generous giving by combining local art, culture, and style.” The brand seeks to produce apparel featuring the designs and work of local artists, but also strives to benefit the same community that shapes them. For their first line, 1201 and Henry have joined together to produce great classic tees which showcase the fun, emotion-evoking characters of their partner artist’s work.
The brand prides themselves on being very “artist-centered” and makes a great attempt to make the work of the artist the centerpiece of their online showcase. At www.1201apparel.com, all visitors are able to read up on the featured artist and non-profit partner, as well as browse through the many Henry works that can be seen on-site. Currently, the apparel can only be purchased on the brand’s site alongside many exclusive replica print options.
1201 Apparel’s main objective is to “spread great local art and style while befitting worthy causes.” Make sure to be part of the movement and shop the full selection of Henry featured product.
