Home State Apparel ®

The Original Home T-shirt

It began with a deep appreciation for the ways that 
landscapes and people have formed us. 

The Original Home Shirt

In 2011, inspired by the love of our home state of North Carolina, we created the original 'home' shirt. We quickly grew to celebrate all 50 states and are now even expanding further abroad. 

Based in Greensboro, NC, we are a living-wage company guided by a few simple core principles: to provide the highest quality products, deliver exceptional customer service, and to have fun doing it.

We take pride in making things by hand: screen-printing our shirts in-house using eco-friendly water-based inks, carefully cutting and placing decals, loading and unloading our studio kiln.

We have inspired imitators, but we are the Original. We are happy to work with you. Join us!

Style & Quality

Our shirts pay homage to the soft, old-school vintage t-shirts of days past. Our screen-printers, Kerry and Ellis, hand screen-print each and every article of clothing with care. We use only the highest quality tri-blend shirts for our apparel. Super soft and totally comfortable, our tees are a perfect way to show off your love of your home State! 

Handmade with Love 

Sustainability and respect for our environment are at the core of every product we create. We aim to cultivate a sense of place with our hand screen-printed apparel and handmade home decor.


Whenever possible, we use eco-friendly materials and products made in the USA. Almost all of our products are assembled, from inception to completion, completely in our warehouse.

Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
