Behind the ArtWear with Jody Bergsma (News updated 30th June 2017)

Jody Bergsma is a relatively new artist to The Mountain’s range of ArtWear apparel. If you haven’t already seen, Jody loves to combine animals with symbols within her pieces, to share a common ancient language, which has been a part of human history for thousands of years.

Jody hopes to express a deeper connection with nature and animals, by bringing together these elements within her garments. 

A lot of Jody’s artwear has a springtime feel, of which you can see in her 2017 collection. Examples of these being ‘Frogs and Kisses’, ‘Precious, Wild, Free’ and ‘Together, We are Magic’.

For Jody Bergsma, becoming an artist meant fulfilling her destiny. We are certainly grateful that she shared her talent to create these inspiring tees.

Mountain BABY! (News updated 15th June 2017)

The Mountain proudly presents there NEW collection of baby grows, featuring six rather cute and adorable designs. Available in 3 sizes including 0-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-18 months. 

Designs include popular images from Howard Robinson’s selfies line, as well as a friendly Big FaceTM and one of the best-selling Dean Russo images.

These little baby sleepsuits are made of 100% ringspun cotton fine jersey material, which makes them extra soft and cosy against baby’s skin. They also feature double-needle ribbed binding on the neck, shoulders, sleeves and leg openings, and a reinforced triple snap closure. The envelope folds on the shoulders to allow for an easy-on and easy-off design, either over the head or up/down the body (perfect for any ‘sticky’ situations!).

With a short sleeve design, which is great for layering or wearing alone. They are durable for all the demanding needs of infants and are made to make life just that bit easier, for caregivers who have to frequently change baby’s outfit!

Coloured using organic dyes, with the image printed using soft, non-toxic water based inks.  

These are all available to be backordered now, with stock expected to arrive early July 2017.
