Custom "Wood is Warm" T-shirt

"Wood is Warm" was a popular mantra used by Emil Milan while he taught at Peter's Valley School of Craft. The phrase was so popular, his students designed t-shirts with the phrase set inside a signature Emilan shape and bird. Our modern replica includes Milan's signature proudly adorning the back of the shirt. The winner will be able to chose from several colors and sizes making it a completely custom shirt.
