Our rouge pink Cutty Sark t-shirt, created in collaboration with Royal Museums Greenwich, is a t-shirt with a story to tell. Did you know that the Cutty Sark was built in 1869 and was designed to transport tea as quickly as possible between China and England? It could hold around 10,000 tea chests, which would have had a value of around £6 million in today’s money, wow! However, the opening of the Suez Canal meant that the trip was reduced by 3,000 miles and steam ships soon became the vessel of choice. You can visit the restored Cutty Sark, one of the last remaining tea clippers in the world, in Greenwich, London.
