Bamboo shirts – back by popular demand

Back by popular demand! Ultra soft organic cotton and bamboo t-shirts - hand screenprinted with original artwork: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLotusRoot

After much thought I’ve decided to bring back the ever popular bamboo + organic cotton t-shirt! People are still contacting me 5 years later letting me know how much they love their shirt, how soft and comfortable it is, and how beautifully it’s held up! You asked for it – you got it!

* Since this is a pre-order, please allow 3 – 4 weeks for me to receive and print your t-shirt.

Since my supplier is phasing out the organic cotton Alternative Apparel tee’s I’ve been printing on, I’ve decided to give these shirts a trial run. As I mentioned before, my main focus these days is on the natural body care/aromatherapy/holistic health side of The Lotus Root, so if you’d like a shirt, get it while you can!

What I love about these shirts (besides how soft and silky they feel) is that they range from XXS – 2XL in Women’s  & XS – 3XL in Mens/unisex, and are flattering on all body types.
I’ve also listed some hemp + organic cotton shirts – which fit great and get softer and softer with each wash.

The making of a Sri Yantra print

After a long wait I’m so happy that I have a new print to share with you!Sri yantra print by Liz Davison $20 www.thelotusroot.com

The Sri Yantra is an ancient Indian symbol and a meditative tool (more on yantras in a later post).
Use it to deepen your meditation practice, or spruce up your space with some uplifting artwork.

I put my mark onto this design by hand carving it into a piece of linoleum (which is always a very meditative process for me). It was then burned onto a silkscreen and hand screen printed onto paper + organic cotton shirts. Find them here: http://www.thelotusroot.com/store/

See some video clips of part of my process below:

Sri Yantra Linoleum Print - Liz Davison www.thelotusroot.com

The design is available on paper, mens / unisex shirts ( Small – 3xl) & women’s scoop neck tees (Small – XL)
Find them here: http://thelotusroot.bigcartel.com/ or on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLotusRoot

Namaste,

Liz

Work in progress – Sri Yantra linoleum Print

I’m in the process of creating this Sri Yantra linoleum print and just thought I’d share it. I’m thinking of doing a bigger and more detailed one in the future, is that something you’d like to see on an organic cotton shirt? Or would you like to see it on my natural skin care packaging? I’d love it if you’d leave a comment to let me know! 

[Edit: I ended up making a new Sri Yantra for t-shirts + to print on paper – check it out here http://thelotusroot.com/sri-yantra/ ]

Sketchbook Sunday – last sketch.. (for now)

This will be the last Sketchbook Sunday for now – while I’d love to continue, I need to put my energy into getting ready for the holidays and my upcoming skincare launch. It was an interesting experiment, and I realized I have to focus on one thing at a time or else I make myself crazy. Hopefully I’ll be able to continue after the new year. :)

Sketchbook Sundays: Cotton

Cotton drawing by Liz Davison www.thelotusroot.com

It’s a beautiful plant, but according to the Organic Trade Association:

Cotton is considered the world’s ‘dirtiest’ crop due to its heavy use of insecticides, the most hazardous pesticide to human and animal health.”

“It can take almost a 1/3 pound of synthetic fertilizers to grow one pound of raw cotton in the US, and it takes just under one pound of raw cotton to make one t-shirt”

“Nitrogen synthetic fertilizers are considered the most detrimental to the environment, causing leaching and runoff that freshwater habitats and wells.”

 “The cottonseed hull, where many pesticide residues have been detected, is a secondary crop sold as a food commodity. It is estimated that as much as 65% of cotton production ends up in our food chain, whether directly through food oil or indirectly through the milk and meat of animals”

If your cotton isn’t organic its most likely Genetically Modified. If you can, please support the farmers who have chosen to grow 100% organic cotton. In the very least,  check those food labels and make sure that your cookies, crackers, etc. are not made with cottonseed oil, a bi-product of cotton processing.

Sketchbook Sundays – Art Depth

Tonight I changed Sketchbook Sundays up a bit. I got a chance to check out Art Depth – a free, interactive art event held at the Crimson Lounge in downtown Chicago. This years party was called GODDESS, and was complete with live painting, a showing of Summer Romero’s gorgeous handmade + eco-friendly fashion line Gaianauta , ayurvedic and reiki healers, an impromptu photo studio, music & burlesque.

There were figure models posing and supplies to draw with. I had fun drawing the incredible bird masks + costumes the models were wearing. Since it’s been a while since I’ve done any figure drawing, I’m a little rusty – so I thought that this week I’d share some of the amazing art by featured artists Jessica Juarez and David Abed.

National Kale Day

It may not be Sketchbook Sunday, but I just found out it’s National Kale Day. I thought I’d share this drawing I did a while back for my dirty dozen / clean fifteen series. Kale is on of the dirty dozen list, so make sure it’s organic!
