DOMA shirts by Slow Loris
You have probably seen the awesome new DOMA Coffee t-shirts. Here’s a little information on the people who made them for us…
Slow Loris came to life in Oakland California in the spring of 1997. Inside a very small storage room (located in the back of a parking garage) of an old cannery building, the very first shirts were printed. After graduating from CCA(C) in 1998, Slow Loris founder Jessica Lynch left Oakland and returned home to Washington state. Re-locating to Guemes island, Slow Loris continued to thrive, screen printing drawings onto shirts, paper and clothing for people around the world, and for touring bands like “Tv on the Radio” and ” my Brightest Diamond”. While keeping true to the hand made quality (no computers are ever used for design making) Jessica had her “hands” full and in 2007 teamed up with good friend Arlo Rumpff. Arlo had been a fisherman in the Bering sea, and brought his hard working enthusiasm to Slow Loris just in time. He learned how to screen print, (he’s better than JEssica now) models most of the shirts on the web site, and deals with a lot of the business side of Slow Loris, a part of the job Jessica was NEVER good at. Team Slow was now complete.
Any average workday in the studio consists of drawing, singing, printing, and beach walks with a bunch of dogs. There’s also a pig named Marnie-biddles who likes to observe through the windows and get into things, (this makes Jessica somewhat crazy, but she still loves him). The adopted motto ” feeling strong and not in a hurry ” reflects the pride Team Slow feels standing behind a quality hand made product .
