dachshund, Fase lamp, retro tshirt, sausage dog, T-shirt -

Beam me up sausage! How a table lamp and a dog can be the Inspiration for a t-shirt.

Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places and this t-shirt is no exception.

 I tend to work late at night and early into the morning when everything is quiet and I can focus. Very often I’m joined by my trusty Dachshund named Dizzy who curls up next to me and quietly dreams of dog food, walks and all the stress less things in her life.

I am a fan and collector of mid century modern interior items. Perched at the end of my sofa is a stunning mid century Fase lamp. Founded by Pedro Martin in 1964, Fase became a world wide success. The distinctive styling bears a striking resemblance to UFO’s of the mid century that captured the imagination of so many.

On this particular evening something outside startled my little sausage dog and she jumped to the floor and stood in front of me like the fierce protector she is. As Dizzy looked up at me her eyes beamed under the light of the Fase presidential lamp and she looked up; at that moment the Inspiration to ‘Beam me up sausage’ came to me and I sketched out the idea for a new t-shirt.

         

We are not a t-shirt factory, every t-shirt is thought through and designed in ltd numbers then hand printed in the traditional way on 155g cotton and finally packaged in its own presentation box.

 

We hope you enjoy!
