Île de Ré discovers a brand new style with T-Skope. This new young brand t-shirt was born in 2016 and sells sweatshirts and bags as well, all with an original graphics, for men, women. The origin of the name "T-Skope" comes from the union of the words "t-shirt" and "skopos", which in Greek means to examine or to observe and represents the idea of a peculiar look to the world, with an opened and limitless vision.
Their products are their own creations or the result of collaborations with creatives: illustrators, street artists, photographers…
Thus, the two great passions for graphics and for t-shirts melt together to give birth to original products, inspired by travels, beaches, surf, and summer: all the unmissable elements of Île de Ré! But T-Skope also offers personalized items, with different designs: from rock to vintage, from street art to photography, not to mention the holy style of the superb «Virgin with surfboard», as we like to call it at La Ceinture d’Avion :) («Holy Surf» on their website).
The high definition of printed images is the result of a particular technique used for the impression: the ink is impressed on the tissue, without covering it. It’s one of the least polluting printing processes and it doesn’t affect the softness and comfort of the tissue. Moreover, the cotton is certified 100% biologic and its processing follows the higher standards for sustainable development. Indeed, it respects the higher ethical, social and environmental responsibility standards and the suppliers obtained many different certifications: WRAP, Fair Wear Foundation, GOTS and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
The enthusiasm and sympathy of T-Skope’s creators were so outstanding that La Ceinture d’Avion couldn’t miss the chance to launch a new collaboration with them. Thus, we created the «Surfing Hermes» T-Shirt. We wanted to find a symbol that could represent the spirit of travel, together with the love for surf… And here it comes: the Greek divinity Hermes (protector of travelers) takes flight on a surfboard for unknown destinations. The slogan «I travel therefore I am» symbolizes exactly the state of mind of travelers, who feel alive as never before when they wander about for new discoveries.
Don’t miss the chance to have a look on their website ;)
