Fireweed ~ Mid-Summer All Over Print Shirt
These premium quality all over print shirts feature original art from seam to seam. The cotton-soft 100% polyester wicks moisture and maintains a rich color throughout. All over print tees are unisex fit, so women should make size selections accordingly and order a minimum of one size smaller. Please Note: Every shirt is uniquely produced using a sublimation process that can create anomalies in some areas, typically under the arm, that leaves small portions of fabric white.

*[The fireweed is a perennial herb and can be found growing in open meadows, in areas recently cleared of vegetation by wild fires and along river-beds and roadsides. Before the plant blooms, fireweed shoots can be harvested for food. They are a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A. Young stems of the fireweed plant can be eaten raw or in salads. Young undamaged blossoms are great in salads too. Freshly picked bright pink blossoms of the flower can add color and a mild flavor to your dish.
Alaskans say that summer has started when the blossoms lowest on the stem bloom and that summer's end is in sight when the blossoms reach the top of the stalk.]*
