Autism Awareness is so important. It is one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the United States and now affects 1 in 54 children (2020). Understanding leads to acceptance.
Autism is one word used to describe so many different types of people. As Autism presents itself differently among people, one thing remains true across the board: different is not less.
These photos are very special to us. Our model, Charlie, is such a remarkable little man. If you look at the photos for even a quick second, you can see his beautiful light and spirit. He has severe Autism and his grown-up, AKA Mom, AKA our photographer, AKA Eileen Lamb, is on the spectrum as well. Eileen has penned a few books, one of which is about autism, it’s called "All Across The Spectrum" and is available on Amazon, among other places. She also hosts the blog "The Autism Cafe" and runs the Instagram account by the same name.
The baseball tee shown in these photos is hand-dyed. If you'd rather have us leave the shirt undyed, please choose that option at checkout. This shirt undyed has a white center and light blue sleeves. This shirt dyed, has a grey center, with darker blue sleeves. If you choose to have us dye this tee please read the following: *These hand-dyed items have been washed & rinsed three times to maximize the color-stay process. However you may want to hand-wash each item to avoid bleeding. If you choose to wash your item in a washer, we recommend always washing your dyed clothing with similar colors in cool water, along with mild, non-bleaching detergent. We aim for the same color with each dye bath, but we can not always guarantee the same end result— which is super lovely and unique. Sometimes there are light spots that have occurred in the dying process, we love this look but respect that you may not. If you would like to return your un-worn/unused item we will certainly refund your money. However we strongly discourage the purchase of another dyed item as this is pretty standard for a dyed item. As with any purchase at Swanky Shank, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.There is always a chance the dye could bleed in the washer. Because we cannot vouch for your washer, the temperature of the water or type of detergent -- we can not guarantee that it won't happen. Please know that once this item is washed we cannot issue refunds or exchanges. Basically: MACHINE WASH AT YOUR OWN RISK :)
