Maker biography
Bold as Brass Apparel came about around 2015 in Motueka. The owner Ben Mills was learning to use Adobe Illustrator programme and always wanted to make shirts with unique designs. Every time Ben got an idea he made it into a t- shirt. Recently the Jacinda t-shirts have been very popular and Ben really enjoys making a range of designs that relate to his hobbies and any kind of current event that sparks his interest. As an art teacher he also shares his practice with his students.
