Intuit Tee ¦ Neutral ¦ "Be Not Defeated by Rain" Embroidery
The Intuit Top is our take on the elevated tee. Our love of the classics along with our roots in the casual Westcoast fashion scene prompted us to make an every day piece that could be worn with any piece in our wardrobe.
The tee comes in three classic ribbed neck colours: neutral, charcoal, and light grey. They are manufactured with a woven crinkle cotton, granting it more shape and structure than your average cotton tee.
The "Be Not Defeated by Rain" embroidery is based on the Japanese handwriting of Vancouver based artist Shirley Liu. The phrase itself is taken from the title of her favourite poem by Kenji Miyazawa, a beloved poet from her old hometown. Written in the Showa period (1931), this is one of Miyazawa's last literary piece. As he laid in his sick bed, unhampered by illness — he boldly reflected upon life's challenges and encouraged one to go forth with earnestness and kindness.
On top of offering the embroidery in our usual copper and charcoal threads, this design is also available in indigo. Indigo dyes are often used in Japanese textiles. It is a colour that breathes life into a plain piece of fabric.
By creating this embroidery, we want to share Miyazawa's words of healing with you.
