CINNIG was founded in April 2020 by me, Cindy Rekman, mainly to provide my kids, boyfriend and myself with original T-shirt designs.
Anything you like or that keeps you busy, you can put on a T-shirt. That’s how I started. And this shows in the designs I have created over the past few years. The kids go through different phases and with me, it’s a trade-off between being Zen and being a warrior. If you or your loved ones find yourself in a similar phase, I would be happy to make such a T-shirt for you.
I choose to use ethically produced T-shirts made of 100% organic cotton. The clothing brand Stanley / Stella fully complies and their T-shirts have a nice fit and a soft feel. With a plotter I cut out the design from flex foil and press it with a heat press on the T-shirt.
The number of designs is steadily expanding. I have hundreds of ideas but just not enough time. If you are a T-shirt lover like me, you should connect with me on Instagram. I try to post something each week. Pinterest and Etsy is also possible but not up to date.
Tip for T-shirt junkies
My favorite graphic T-shirts, I wear them until they’re worn on the wire. And then what? 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 this TOP solution! Make a big pillowcase out of them.
In case you have loads of them: a play mat.
