Mini Shatsu began over twenty years ago with a six-pack of white cotton t's, a dozen or so bottles of puffy fabric paint, a couple of cans of spray paint and a black Sharpie. In the end, what remained were five paint-ruined cotton t-shirt-like rags and a one-of-a-kind t-shirt, ready to wear for a night out. Mission accomplished. Growing up in the Eighties near Hollywood, where everything was larger than life, there certainly was no shortage of inspirations when it came to designing t-shirts. All one needed to do was step outside and look... and listen. From rap to rock, beatbox to breaking, hoops to skateboarding, mohawks to tattoos, those that did it right, did it big... big hair, big earrings, "gi-normous" boom boxes, loud music and even louder outfits. In those days, bigger was indeed better. And original and homemade t's were big and loud in a quirky kind of way. Over the years t-shirts have evolved to become the canvas of choice for many looking for a creative outlet. After almost a decade in the baby and juvenile products industry and a history of unique t-shirts, Mini Shatsu was born. The word "Shatsu" is a Japanese word meaning "shirt". Mini Shatsu or mini shirt means just that. Mini Shatsu is not just another line of t-shirts and onesies for kids and babies. It is, rather, a line of life-inspired clothing brought down to size to fit the most prized members of your family. While the shirts are no longer homemade or one-of-a-kind, Mini Shatsu shirts are still very unique and very limited as there are less than one thousand shirts produced for each design.
