Having studied several martial arts over 40 years or so, I confess that I am fascinated with the culture of Japan.
Whilst several of my designs are inspired by the American Leo Fender, my manufacturing focuses on lean and agile principles, for which Japan has a World leading reputation.
All of my instrument designs have two names. A Western modern identifier like JPJ5 and a Japanese hand weapon, such as the "Katana" sword.
I'm therefore proud to present to you a collaboration of several artists and artisans in my first batch of premium quality, hand printed T Shirts, inspired by the culture of Japan!
The talented graphic artist Stephanie Jordan realised my concept exactly as I dreamed it. Thanks Steph!
Takao Hirayama San provided us with Kanji and the closest Japanese to English translations. Takao is the owner of Luminlay, a material of his that I proudly use in my work.
Artisan screen printer Rick Newham optimised Steph's work for screen print and lovingly produced an initial batch of 20 T shirts from his Works in Leicester. His work has been applied to Gildan "gd08", heavyweight, premium quality, soft feel black T shirts.
Sizes currently left are: SO SORRY! - WE ARE SOLD OUT.
Stock list was updated July 2023.
I'd be delighted to ship these out in the UK for £20 plus £3.99 P&P each (Royal Mail signed for, second class). If you are abroad, please DM me for a quote for international shipping.
I require 20 pre-orders to produce another batch of these fabulous quality shirts. Please DM me if you might be interested?
Thanks for considering a purchase, my profit is notional on such a quality artisan made T shirt, but every little bit really helps me continue through these difficult times. If these go well, you'd really be boosting three creatives here, me, Steph and Rick!
