The ground of Montana holds great stories, and so do our Montana Mud Shirts. Colored only with genuine dirt, designed by local artists, and screen printed, our shirts represent the best of “Made in Montana.”
The hand-crafted effort begins with hand-dug clay from the mountains. In the shop, the clay is mixed with water to create a rich terra-cotta colored mud, which we work into 100% cotton shirts. The clay’s iron oxide works as a 100% natural dye, giving each shirt its own unique color. No chemicals. No artificial additives. We commission local, independent artists to create our designs, which is screen printed by hand onto each shirt. Then, they cure the color by heating each shirt. That’s the process—simple, quality, with the Montana touch.
Caring for your shirt: For the first wash, we suggest washing separately in cold water. After that, just treat it as though it’s your favorite shirt (because it probably is your favorite by now). Your Montana Mud Shirt will soften over time and, like a great pair of jeans, it’ll fade slightly with time.
