The sketch is then tweaked and refined multiple times until everyone's ready to run with it. When all the details are settled, the artist then hand-carves the design into a wood and linoleum block. This traditional technique gives all of...

Fashionable gardening tee shirts are here at last: Ironweed Apparel is born!

We're thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new line of gardening fashion - Ironweed Apparel.

It's bold and beautiful and tough-as-nails; just like our tees!  Stop back soon for more info on the Ironweed collection and...
