Des Artistes is an eco-and socio-conscious line of conceptual printed tees featuring work from notable and emerging contemporary artists. The t-shirt becomes a canvas upon which to inspire and explore the human spirit.
Launched in 2009, Des Artistes reflects a creative mindset that is fueled by contemporary art. Every season they showcase artists from a range of backgrounds, genres, ages and cultures to maintain the brand's ongoing evolution. They've worked with artists such as Ai Weiwei and Edward Mapplethorpe & Patti Smith. Every artist is acknowledged on every tee, rightfully so.
Des Artistes strives to use the finest organic and sustainable fabrics in combination with super low-impact water-based inks. The aim is to make awareness with real art that inspires. To that end, a portion of sales will benefit a different charitable organization each season.
