Want a tip for meeting vegans and vegetarians? Well here it is: Wear t-shirts that announce your veg status! The creative people at Lion’s Share Industries have a line of unique vegan t-shirts that will keep you looking sharp and might just make you a new friend. Tip number two: Go to vegan events. For example, San Francisco’s first vegan fashion show, which is taking place on October 2, 2010. Lion’s Share designs will be featured at the show so stop by if you’re in the area.

Here is a sneak peak at three of the company’s awesome designs. Visit the Lion’s Share Industries website to see more designs and their cute models.

About Lion’s Share Industries

Lion’s Share Industries is a Seattle-based t-shirt company that’s created a special art and fashion experiment made possible by many talented vegans and friends-of-vegans all around the world.

Each series of Lion’s Share shirts is based on a theme. Five artists are then commissioned to design a shirt that says “vegan” in words or pictures. The designs are identifiers, not arguments. The artists are given choices of various eco-materials such as organic cotton, bamboo, and recycled materials, each with its own color pallet. The artists chose the inks. They also vote on where 15% of the series profits will be donated.

Only 200 of each design is produced. About 20 of the shirts are given back to the artists, models, and others who donate their time. The remaining 180 are hand number and sold via this web site and retail boutiques.
