When you think of graphic T-shirt companies, what comes to mind? BustedTees? How about Snorg Tees? Maybe Johnny Cupcakes? Or even Karmaloop? Well, it’s time for them to step aside, because there’s a new kid on the block — or company I should say. Boston based Mer+ge, founded by former NCAA basketball player and bio/premed major Victoria Jones, helps break the monotony that seems to have accumulated within the graphic t-shirt industry. By doing the unconventional Mer+ge has begun to make quite a name for itself.
Our goal at Mer+ge is simple… we provide clothing that stands for something. Our original designs and graphics promote self-expression and unity and strive to eliminate arbitrary separations among social groups. Mer+ge designs use political, social, and biological messages to merge science with art and demonstrate that gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, etc. are things that do not necessarily define us, but are rather just one part of who we are. More than a business, Mer+ge is dedicated to freedom of self-expression and unity. So now it’s your turn to make the Mer+ge.
