CityFabric needs help launching its new line of hand-screened shirts, totes, pillows and canvases.
About a year ago, a few folks decided to print maps of their hometown, Raleigh, North Carolina, on t-shirts to sell at a local arts market. Now they’re on Kickstarter as CityFabric, attempting to raise $13,000 in the next month for their project – “Wear You Live.”
The idea behind this line of apparel is to get people talking about where they live. “It’s our believe that the more people talk about their place, the more they’ll get involved in their community,” says founder Matt Tomasulo.
As of August 3rd, 2011, CityFabric is on their way to meeting their goal with 378 backers, a total of $15,207 pledged and 27 days of campaigning left. If you pledge $25 you can choose a t-shirt or tote bag, and higher pledges get bigger rewards. Right now, only 13 cities are available:
But if CityFabric hits their campaign goal, they intend on expanding and adding more cities to the list. And they offer more than shirts and totes – they’ll happily slap your hometown on a heavyweight print, a cotton-twill cloth pillow, or a hand-stretched canvas (which makes for a pretty sick wall exhibition).
Local business seeks expansion to promote local awareness – seems like a project worth backing.
