CINNIG was founded in April 2020 by me, Cindy Rekman, the T-shirt mam. I’m always looking for that one T-shirt with that great print. But you know, if you want to find something specific, you don’t just come across it. So I decided to make them myself.
With a printed T-shirt you can express anything you want. Your sport, hobby, passion, habitat, something you believe in or protest against. Living with my partner and two children in a village attached to Amsterdam gives me the inspiration for the graphic designs.
I choose to only use T-shirts made of 100% organic cotton that are ethically produced. The clothing brand Stanley / Stella fully complies and – not unimportantly – their shirts have a nice fit and a soft feel. Each design I cut out of flex foil with a plotter and press it with love (and especially a lot of heat!) on the T-shirt. And then for a while I’m going to stare very happy at the T-shirt.
The number of designs is steadily expanding. I still have hundreds of ideas but just not enough time. Are you also a T-shirt lover and do you want to stay informed about new graphic T-shirt designs? Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and/or Etsy. You can also contact me if you know something you would like to see on a T-shirt. Who knows, I might be able to make it.
Tip for all T-shirt junkies
When I have found a T-shirt with a fine print, I wear it until it is worn on the wire. And still I can’t give it up. The tee and I have been through so much together that throwing it away is absolutely not an option. If you also have such dramatic feelings about worn, beloved shirts I have a TOP solution! When you have collected enough shirts, you can make a big pillowcase out of it. And do you really have a lot of them, a play mat.
