Delta Dirt Shirts are the perfect Mississippi souvenir for three reasons:
- The Mississippi Delta is world famous for cotton, so we begin with a white 100% heavy cotton t-shirt.
- The t-shirts are then hand dyed with Mississippi mud, using the red clay soil that gives the shirts a marbleized beautiful peach color. Just like nature, no two t-shirts are exactly the same.
- Local artists have created designs that they would want to wear. Featuring artwork by Don Jacobs whose extensive mural in the Governor’s Mansion grabbed a lot of attention, Drew Harris whose mural work is found all over Vicksburg, and Carrie Chennault, a young energic up-and-coming graphics artist out of Clinton.
Launching with 5 original designs that highlight all that is good in Mississippi the screen prints include a catfish, a steamboat, Crossroads guitars, Edward Tree’s concert “Blues” guitar and a Mighty MS image with many local icons. Although there are 5 “original” designs a new design is set to be released every quarter. When you wear a Delta Dirt Shirt, you’re truly wearing Mississippi.
