Some of you may know that a couple of years ago I started an online magazine called CREATEjacksonville, that featured local artists and makers from the Jacksonville area. The magazine is no more, but while it was up and running, I really enjoyed promoting and getting to know the people I interviewed and seeing them out at art shows and things. And I have been hoping to feature more Jacksonville artists and artisans here lately.
So, when my future brother-in-law, Joey told me about a local clothing company, Arturo, I was pretty excited. Screen-printed tees are a dime a dozen but Arturo Clothing Co. is a true DIY company. Everything is done by hand! Their shirts are designed, drawn, crafted, printed, and tagged by hand. Their bags are printed, cut, and sewn by hand; and all hats are crocheted one at a time by hand. AND everything in the Arturo shop is SUPER affordable: almost all of the tees are only $15 and that ultra cute dog tote is $12! So, make sure you stop by the Arturo shop and show some love.
