Gummy Bear Tee
An Insulin Addict x Redox Apparel collaborative project.
A fitting project between 2 sisters, both who have Type One Diabetes. From growing up together sharing teddy bears and barbie dolls to now sharing a love for the same hypo snacks - Sour Patch Kids and Haribo sour gummy bears!
The bright colours within these bears not only remind us of our fun childhood full of imagination, but actually come from Aliza's year 12 art project where she conducted a series of redox reactions. That piece was then selected for the South Australian Certificate of Education Art Exhibition and was honestly something truly breathtaking to look at!
A redox reaction is a type of chemical reaction which the oxidation state of atoms are changed. Redox reactions are characterised by the actual or formal transfer of electrons between chemical species most often when one is going though oxidation, and the other is going through reduction. It's an extremely fitting concept as change is inevitable when you are newly diagnosed.
These tees are a great reminder that change does not have to be a scary thing, and know that colour can always come out of the darkness.
The following features make for a light and extremely soft tee:
- Regular fit, crew neck
- Mid weight, 180 GSM
- 80% combed cotton, 20% polyester
- Neck ribbing, side seamed, shoulder to shoulder tape,
- double needle hems, preshrunk to minimise shrinkage
