Being an Egyptologist isn’t something you do because you need to pay the bills or are looking to pass the time. Oh no. It’s a passion that burns deep in our souls that we just can’t brush to one side. It’s the just-one-more-book-for-the-shelf syndrome; it’s your ears pricking up at a passing mention of Egypt; it’s being able to pull any conversation back around to ancient Egypt; it’s being that person that’s easy to buy gifts for because your friends and family know that, as long as it has something ‘Egypty’ on it, it’ll be good.
And we’re proud of our passion, too. Our chests swell with pride when we get that look of fascination and accompanying ‘Oooh!’ when a new acquaintance asks what we do.
Whether you’ve pushed yourself through seven years of university study and are working, researching, digging or lecturing; or you’re a student now on that journey; or you’re an independent scholar who’s spent years with your nose in all the right books, we’re united by our love of all things ancient Egypt.
And now you can shout it from the rooftops with this stylish, yet gorgeously soft and comfy cotton t-shirt, designed by an Egyptologist for Egyptologists.
It’ll pair fantastically with your favourite jeans, or with sports leggings for the gym or yoga class.
The design is printed using the direct to garment method, meaning you get amazing detail and colours. However, you should wash at 30º to keep the design looking as good as the day it arrived on your doorstep.
Ethical and environmental impact
Each t-shirt is printed to order, usually dispatched within three working days. This means that resources are used only as and when needed.
The t-shirts are manufactured in Bangladesh by a company overseen by the Fair Wear Foundation, meaning the workers are treated with respect and dignity, in safe and secure buildings.
The cotton production is as ecological as possible, minimising water use, using crop rotation to maximise soil health and fertility, and recycles waste products from the plant into animal feed.
Both t-shirts and inks are free from harmful chemicals and animal products, making them vegan-friendly and eco-friendly.
