Blog: Leonie BarrieTouchy-feely Tees

Leonie Barrie | 10 February 2006

Here’s a great idea. It’s not new, but it’s definitely fun and adds a new dimension to clothing: T-shirts with raised Braille lettering on the front spelling out special slogans and messages. Entrepreneur Kara Euvino's black T-shirts and tank tops have sayings on them such as ‘Pure trouble,’ ‘Atkins approved,’ ‘Nothing artificial,’ and ‘Plays well with others.’ Primitive State and NotVanilla take it a step further with words like ‘Lickable’ – but includes a translation hidden under the hem at the front. If you don’t want people to run their fingers over the shirts to decipher the messages, then I suppose one with the words ‘Hands off’ would be appropriate. Or maybe a new line adorned with words in sign language would have the desired effect!
