Matt's making t-shirts

Matt Palka talks about his weekend experience - making those oh so soft t-shirts for his upcoming cross-country tour.
"Armed with a screen, paint, squeegee, and a 150 watt light bulb we made our stencil using photo emulsion. Then it was onto the paint. Once Brittaini taught me the technique, I worked solo. Doing everything individual by hand does take time. But I've never been afraid of doing the work. Two sleepless days later I emerged with an army of shirts. Each one having it's own unique vintage and worn look, and the fabric feels as soft as rabbit's fur, no joke!"
