We hosted a t-shirt design contest throughout the month of February and asked Designers to focus on promoting North Carolina and cotton based themes for our 2013 Cotton of the Carolinas Limited Edition T-Shirt line.

We started our Limited Edition T-shirt campaign so that individuals would have access to purchasing one or a small handful of our super-comfortable, “Dirt to Shirt” tees. Cotton of the Carolinas was previously only available to companies making a large order, and there was a lot of feedback from the community that individuals would want access to our sustainable t-shirts.

First, the entire TS Designs Team would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to each person who submitted a design during our contest. We are delighted with the amount of submissions we received and appreciate everyone’s effort, creativity and support! We really enjoyed deliberating over the design options and are very excited about the bringing the winning designs to the community.


We chose two designs from two different local designers.

At the moment, we see this as a long sleeved tee printed and shipped just in time for Autumn weather.



We couldn’t be happier with the the Limited Edition designs we’ll be able to offer our community this year! And stay tuned for more information.

So, what do you think about these designs? Will you be pre-ordering either? Both?
