Designer selling tees for drought town

THE Stanthorpe-based expressive wear company that was named after two beloved dachshunds is doing its part to support the local community, giving back to those who helped residents in a time of need.

The team at Tily&Wilbur have designed a range of cheeky T-shirts to lighten the mood throughout the drought-ravaged town.

Tily&Wilbur owner and designer Sarah Lupton said her close friend first mentioned the idea of making a fun design to put on to a T-shirt.

“These T-shirts came about from my friend Paola Cabezas, from Paola’s The Winemaker Kitchen,” Ms Lupton said.

“She said why don’t we put ‘Stanthorpe save water, shower with a friend’ on a T-shirt, and I thought it was a great idea.”

After printing the first shirt, Ms Lupton decided to make a range of fun and cheeky tees, donating $5 from every sale to the Granite Belt Drought Assist.

“We just did that one shirt and then I thought let’s make a range of shirts and put some of the proceeds back into the community,” she said.

“Straight away I thought of Granite Belt Drought Assist – that’s where we get our drinking water from every week.”

Three days later Tily&Wilbur have already sold 10 tees and donated $50 to the Granite Belt Drought Assist.

“I am very grateful for Granite Belt Drought Assist,” she said.

“Glenda is loving the T-shirts and is very grateful for anything that can be put back in to GBDA.”

T-shirts are $30 and are available in a variety of different designs and colours, with $5 of every sale donated to the Granite Belt Drought Assist.

If you live locally you can pick up for free at Eclectic Pallet on Maryland St.
