Sorte x Butch Tee

$25.00


Sorte Tienda is Venezuelan design and fashion brand founded by three friends in Maracaibo. Working from their home, they create designs, do their own screenprinting, and with the help of family sew all the shirts by hand. For the first time ever, Autostraddle is collaborating with another brand to put merchandise into our store, and we’re so glad it’s Sorte. 

Graphic designer Nani Albornoz created this design especially for Sorte–she wanted to do creative work inspired by her Venezuelan upbringing and in collaboration with people there.

"I wanted to make that shirt for people who grew up like me. I wanted to make something that is 100 percent Venezuelan and from my city as a way of giving back,” Albornoz said. “I wanted to set an example that it’s not bad to use labels as a way to feel powerful. We sold a couple tee shirts and now here we are.” 

She grew up chased by the label “marimacho,” a Spanish slur that is equivalent to “dyke” in English. It’s a word that is supposed to degrade women who have masculine characteristics, but around Latin America women are reclaiming it to brandish it as a badge of honor.

Albornoz’s focus in design is typography, and the shirt packs a lot of punch with just four words: Butch, Tomboy, Marimacho, Bulldyke.

Printed on Zaga 100% Cotton.
