Hand Screened Original Art Tee Shirts
Slow Loris came to life in Oakland, California in the spring of 1997. Inside a very small storage room in the basement garage of an old cannery building, the very first t-shirts were printed. After graduating from CCAC in 1998, Slow Loris founder Jessica Lynch left Oakland and returned home to Washington state. Re-locating to Guemes island, Slow Loris continued to thrive, screen printing drawings onto t-shirts, paper and clothing for people around the world, and for touring bands like TV on the Radio, My Brightest Diamond, Karl Blau and The Lonely Forest.
While keeping true to the hand made design quality, Jessica had her “hands” full and in 2007 teamed up with good friend Arlo Rumpff. Arlo had been a fisherman in the Bering sea, and brought his hard working enthusiasm to Slow Loris just in time. Jessica taught him how to screen print, (he’s better than her now) models most of the shirts on the web site, and deals with a lot of the business side of Slow Loris, a part of the job Jessica was NEVER good at. Team Slow was now complete.
Any average workday consists of drawing, singing, and printing in our solar powered studio, as well as beach walks with a bunch of dogs. There’s also a pig named Marnie-biddles who likes to observe through the windows and get into things. The adopted motto “feeling strong and not in a hurry” reflects the pride Team Slow feels standing behind a quality hand made product for the past thirteen years
