As a small business, we at Space Bear understand the passion, commitment and dedication that goes into everything we do. We recognize the importance of supporting other small businesses, even when cheaper options exist. Rather than outsource our clothing manufacturing overseas or cutting corners on unethically produced garments, we are please to announce our partnership with Mumble Tease, a local hand crafted clothing company. We insist on using American Apparel, sweatshop-free clothing for our clothing line, and our t-shirts are printed exclusively on American Apparel organic cotton.
In addition to the first generation of Space Bear clothing, Mumble Tease has designed a limited edition colour variation of “mushrooms” which is limited to only 100 pieces.
Here’s a little background on Heather, the creative mind behind Mumble Tease:
“I started Mumble Tease some time in 2010 for somewhat selfish reasons. I mostly thought it would be awesome to wear shirts with my own doodles on them. Who would’ve thought that five or so years later, designing and silk-screening silly t-shirts would be my full-time employment? I sure didn’t! But here I am!”
“I actually studied to be an illustrator, graduating from the Alberta College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Design, but fell in love with silk-screening when I took a weekend-long Continuing Education course after graduating. After that short introduction to the world of silk-screening, printing shirts slowly took up more and more of my time over the next couple of years, until it became clear that illustration was not the path for me, but t-shirts and silk-screening was!"
