What makes us different?
We only work with locally based artists to create locally inspired shirt designs. Artists have full control over their designs.
Only Premium Shirts
Lots of companies sell cheap shirts with the latest fads. We focus on premium quality shirts made from combed, ringspun cotton for soft, wearable shirts.
Where We Came From
LocalWear began as a family discussion at a holiday dinner.
Our family has a few places that we all love… The town where we grew up and vacation spots we visited as kids. We have piles of T shirts from these places.
That night at dinner we had an idea to use shirt designs by local artists as a way to connect people around the places they love… cities, towns, neighborhoods…
We wondered if we could do this across the country, give a portion of sales to charity and provide an increasingly large benefit for kids.
So we decided to start LocalWear as a small family business.
Our mission and how we’re achieving it
We find talented local artist talents and create awesome shirts…
…And help children reach their goals in life.
Two more Richmond artists added…
We’ve just added designs from two more Richmond artists… Molly Gertenbach and Heather Rankin have each created a series of three local designs. Their designs bring some awesome new styles to LocalWear. We hope you enjoy them.
Launching with our first artists!
We are thrilled to officially launch LocalWear with our first two Richmond artists: Sarah Barton and Blake Cale. Sarah and Blake have created some truly unique Richmond designs. Check out our Richmond page to take a look. We’re currently working with several other local Richmond artists and will have more designs coming shortly…
Richmond selected as our launch city
Richmond Virginia has been selected as our first city! We chose Richmond due to the city’s active local design community and strong creative culture.
