what is shwert?

founded by a couple of t-shirt-loving buddies from LA, shwert is all about inspiring others, making it fun, and keeping it local.

motivated by the ofttimes beautiful, sometimes ugly, but always intriguing world around us, we at shwert create and design small batch, original t-shirts with one goal in mind: producing lots of smiles. our designs are engineered for happiness, not hurtfulness.

we hand screen print every shwert ourselves, in a local LA print shop, on high-quality t-shirts ethically made in LA. so you may wear them not only with confidence that you will bring a smile to somebody's face, but also with pride in knowing that you are supporting local businesses that exercise fair practices.

we're in this shwert together! by making our t-shirts, we hope to make smiles, but our mission is to make a difference. that's why we donate a portion of every t-shirt sold to some of our favorite charities.

so, why "shwert"? it's simple, really... there's no "i" in team, and at shwert, we're a team. so we took the "i" out of shirt and replaced it with "we": shirt - i + we = shwert!

please enjoy your visit and don't forget to smile!

love, team shwert
