Algarvian brand launches “Txirte Art Collection”

Algarvian brand Txirte has recently launched its first t-shirt of the new “Txirte Art Collection” in partnership with artist João Sena.

João Sena from Portimão, whose career spans more than 20 years, was invited to be the first artist to inaugurate this collection which aims to feature several artists from different areas and backgrounds, creating limited edition pieces and using the t-shirt as a “canvas”.

Filipe Pimenta, founder and manager of Txirte, said: “T-shirts have become a communication tool of huge impact, where art comes alive through the movement of the body.”

Txirte is a t-shirt brand following a line of geographic themes under the name “T-World” (cities, regions and countries) as well as another line of limited-edition author designs, all commercialised through its website.

Txirte was born from the founder’s love of travelling and the need to create a special memory of each place. Filipe Pimenta launched the brand in 2018 and hopes it can become a reference for travellers as well as a vehicle to promote artists’ work.

All products are made with “high-quality ring-spun organic cotton” and come in reusable packaging. Orders should be made through the Txirte website – follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
