The Origin of the T-Shirt

The Origin of the T-Shirt

The T-Shirt. Arguably the most popular outer garment in the world. While going through The Orenda Tribe's T-shirt inventory the other day I paused and wondered "What is the origin of the T-shirt?" then I thought to myself that this is information that I should probably know especially when I am running my own T-shirt company.

Then they supported our mission through buying a t-shirt and Ali the 10 year old kid was so proud of his new t-shirt, that he left the shop wearing it. And this is why our first product is a children's t-shirt and not an adult's t-shirt. To raise awareness...
