ABOUT HAND-PAINTED T-SHIRTS

TROPE CLOTHING was founded by Danel Steyn, a T-shirt artist from Durbanville in Cape Town. The word ‘trope’ means a figure of speech and reflects Danel’s passion for producing comfortable leisure wear which makes a bold statement.

Our designs are hand-painted onto premium-brand VIC BAY leisure wear, which guarantees you of a top-quality locally manufactured product.

ABOUT OUR GARMENTS

  • The garments are 100% cotton of South African origin
  • The fabric is knitted in body-size tubular form allowing for most products to have seamless sides
  • The fabric is dyed to international colour-fast and performance benchmarks.

THE PROCESS

All designs are hand cut to stencils, which are then used to paint the design onto the garment by hand. As a result of this manual process, although similar in design, each ‘print’ is unique.

TROPE CLOTHING selects its designs from visual elements or icons trending on social media and the broader web. These are then reinterpreted before being rendered for hand-painting.

Our design ranges include simple icons, words, statements and shapes. The simplicity of the design leaves it open to individual interpretation.
