Special editioned one-of-a-kind shibori dyed Mole shirts from LA garment and dye-work studio ess.y.ess.
The artist examined the amount of labor involved in the process of mole-making with that of shibori dye-work. The result is intricately laid dye designs, crafted after a laborious process of folding and washing.
Please note that all garments are dyed differently.

Proyectos Tyrone is a conduit for BIPOC-centric projects that promote artisans/designers/humans from marginalized LA regions. Proyectos Tyrone is happy to release it's second project at Cafe Murmurs with artist Javier Ramirez:
Chido-En is the bonsai project of LA-based artist Javier Ramirez. Chido-En offers traditional bonsai services and a hand-picked amount of carefully selected starter and intermediate trees available for purchase. Merging the Mexican slang word for cool (Chido) and the Japanese word for garden (En), Chido–En also explores the mixing of two distinct cultural realms. With Chido-En, Javier weaves together the ancient Japanese art form of bonsai with his native Mexican-American visual language to present something that feels distinct yet respectful of the two cultures.
