Ventana Grizzly Bear by Fabian Lavater
These organic, extra soft, tagless tees feature art by Swiss surfer, artist, and environmentalist Fabian Lavater of a California Grizzly Bear carrying the Ventana Treefish surfboard. Prints of this design are available on Fabian's website.
There are two styles:
- Unisex 100% Organic Cotton Tee - Mushroom
- Women's Bamboo (70%) + Organic Cotton (30%) Swoop Neck Tee - Canvas
The cloth is made of 100% organic cotton, and these tees are manufactured in the USA. The silk-screening is done in Santa Cruz, California, and 100% of the profits from the screening go to fund the local youth outreach and education programs of Barrios Unidos. We are moving away from recycled plastic bottle (rPET) polyester given concerns about microplastic fibers finding their way into the ocean after machine washing.
Each shirt comes with a reclaimed wooden hang tag connected to a key ring and an upcycled, paracord leash cord offcut from the production of Ventana Khordz Mugs. Just like our surfboards, every detail matters.
All in all there's a ton of goodness about this product, but while the shirt is manufactured and printed in the USA, the yarn is created overseas.
Wear this as your go-to shirt on surf trips or around town. Donate your wardrobe to people in need and stock up on these great shirts. Order a few to show your Ventana love, your support for Fabian Lavater's art, and your commitment to the planet.

NOTE: With the organic yarns, there will be small striations of the natural fibers within the fabric. This is an inherent trait of the fabric. This makes it difficult to get consistent lots of fabric, and there may be some slight color imperfections. That makes it look even cooler, of course!
