After many months of work, we are excited to announce that Ty D.I.Y. Edition is finally here!
Ty D.I.Y. Edition is a "draw-it-yourself" shower curtain kit complete with blue, green or black permanent marker. It allows creative types the ability to customize thier shower curtain with their own hand-drawn designs and illustrations. The "canvas" for Ty D.I.Y. is our popular Ty recyclable shower curtain which is non-toxic, machine washable, recyclable and made in the U.S.
You'll probably notice that we've updated our packaging for both Ty and Ty D.I.Y. Edition. Our simple paper packaging is now printed on 100% post consumer recycled content chipboard using locally sourced soy-based inks by Pinball Publishing in Portland, OR.
In an effort to offer and even more durable product, both Ty and Ty D.I.Y. Edition will now have metal grommet hanging holes.
We've also joined 1% For The Planet, so 1% of all our sales will go directly to environmental causes.
For more info, here is the official press release. Ty ($30.00) and Ty D.I.Y. ($33.00) are available for purchase in our shop.
To help us launch, on October 23rd we hosted a draw-a-thon at our studio on Bainbridge Island. We had a group of local artists, designers and friends create their own custom designs. Below are the results. Pictured left to right are Andrea, James, Darin, Loc, Paul, Claire, Dylan, Natalia, Susanna, Regan, Eric, Laura, Tayler, Chika, Jared, Katie, Chrissy, Lauren and Tara. The details are from curtains by Jamie and Brian, Andrea, Catherine, Dylan, James and Laura. Here is a link to larger photos.
