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.
