Philadelphia Printworks is a conscious clothing company that creates T-shirts, sweatshirts and other apparel with designs inspired by social issues and the legacies of revolutionary leaders. Even if you’re the most vocal of activists, Philadelphia Printworks will help you expresses your views, thoughts and beliefs without even having to say a word.
We spoke to co-founder, Maryam Pugh to find out more about the company. This is what she had to say:
What inspired the creation of Philadelphia Printworks?
Philadelphia Printworks was created as a way to participate in our civic duty of activism, to delve into the shallow end of the entrepreneurship pool, and to utilize a creative outlet that would continue the DIY legacy of screen printing.
What is the process behind choosing what design or theme to create?
The designs are heavily influenced by the topics discussed by the PPW community; both directly and indirectly.
In an age of social injustice, explain how you feel you are making a difference through your business. How can other businesses do the same?
What is the most challenging part of being an entrepreneur? What is the most fulfilling?
But, that’s also what makes it the most rewarding. When you succeed you know it’s a result of all of your hard work, ingenuity, and perseverance.
