The Origin Tee


To pay homage to our hometown makers and local process, we welcome The Origin Tee to The Origin Edit. To accompany our selection of curated vintage from New York's finest, each Origin Tee has been upcycled with custom screenprinting by the whole team at NAOMI NOMI HQ.   

What I'm made of

100% organic ringspun cotton

How to take care of me:
Machine wash cold with like colors. Tumble dry low.

How I'm made

This garment is made-to-order and silkscreened by hand at our Brooklyn, NY studio.

Ready within 2 weeks to ship or pick-up from our Brooklyn Studio.

Our Coat of Arms

Does the screenprint on The Origin Tees look familiar? Probably because it's a nod to the origin tags tucked inside every NAOMI NOMI garment.

As a brand founded by makers, manufacturing locally embodies our principle, our raison de vivre, and the heart on our sleeves (or chest, rather).

Model Makers

This campaign features New York's finest - our labelmakers, seamstresses, cutters, button guys, and more - that we're lucky to call our partners. Producing & partnering locally in NYC is something we're deeply proud of, because it allows us to guarantee the highest standards of garment quality, team conditions, and overall ethical execution of every part of our process.

What is upcycling?
Why do we do it?

Recycling = Breaking something down into raw materials that are reused.

Upcycling = Revitalizing something in its current form.

The average American throws out 81lbs of clothing every year, so we only make new clothes when what we need doesn't already exist. Each Vintage Tee was hand-selected for its quality before adding our special touch with our screenprinted battle cry.
Screenprinted by yours truly

We wrangled the full NAOMI NOMI team to screen print each of these tees.

An ancient technique, silkscreen printing involves stretching a taught silk mesh stencil over a garment, then pressing ink down into it to create a design. There's no room for mistakes, and this team - as usual - nailed it.
