1 How do we do it ? We find a gravestone We love.

ACCUSED OF GRAVE ROBBINGLike the witches of Salem, we have been unjustly accused.
No,We don't rob graves. Just because we love the art carved on old gravestones and then turn those designs into incredible wearable art doesn't make us grave robbers! Let's get this straight, we're just two people who love the art and symbolism displayed on ancient stones and monuments and proudly reproduce this incredibly awesome and sometimes macabre art on t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and velvet.
This season we are concentrating on escape artists, nightmarish novelists, doomed innocents and frightful fictioneers - Poe, lovecraft, Ichabod Crane, Shakespeare, Harry Houdini, Dracula, Edward Gorey and even Mother Goose.
Start here with our Shakespeare and H.P. Lovecraft designs...
