Our Saab T-shirts - Trollhättan born 1947 – can still be ordered up to and including Sunday. As requested by readers, we've added sizes M and S. The shirt will only be available once in this variant, it is exclusive and special. We'll start shipping next week - the shirts are already with the local company, which is finishing them for us.
The first edition was a trial run for our new standard range, of which we have finished developing two designs. They are completely different from the shirt that can currently be ordered, and for the first time we have two different colors.
We play with airplanes
The standard Saab T-shirt range will be available in our shop (Link) will be available in black and blue. The third color, which is white, is a bit delayed. While we simply like our design with the black and blue shirts, the color white proved a little tricky. We're working on the fine-tuning, and we've got something that we'll submit later.
Airplanes will play a certain role in our shirts, which of course is part of Saab's DNA. But we will have the element of surprise on our side, because the aircraft are guaranteed to behave differently than you now suspect.
Ok, was there anything else?
Sustainable and Saabig packaging
Actually already. Because we realize the projects because we simply feel like it and because we are allowed to. If more people like what we do, so much the better. A challenge with the T-shirts is their packaging. Delivering the shirts in plastic-heavy packaging would be out of the question.
And once again the question arises, how would this have been solved in Trollhättan?
Perhaps not quite as confidently as one would have expected. Even Saab's own organic cotton collection was packed in ugly plastic bags. A bit strange if you want to sell sustainability and green BioPower mobility. But maybe the time wasn't right for something else, as we all know, a few years have passed since then.
We are trying to do better and think we have found a good solution. We work on it with a hot turbo needle, we present the result (presumably) in the next week. The challenge is - to pack sustainably and Saabig at the same time. And with planes. Will we succeed?
