With a background in biology, Kimberly and James of Tumbleweed Tees have turned their knowledge and “bird nerd” obsession into, well, a t-shirt business. Having converted a 20ft shipping container into their creative hub, they have all the bells and whistles to produce unique screen print artwork and clothing for kiwi nature lovers and travellers alike.
They pride themselves on their impeccable designs capturing the personality of New Zealand birdlife. Their designs are “a nod to scientific illustrations of the past”, which is fitting considering they both recently worked in the Natural History Museum of London, where their love for scientific art was born.
Tumbleweed are proud as punch of their fundraising partnerships with conservation projects around New Zealand, donating $5 of each adult t-shirt sold to specific conservation groups. This is their way to lend a helping hand to the species and habitats that inspire their art.
