You know those old tees in the back of our wardrobe collecting dust, hiding under a pile of So Fresh CD’s? Yeah, well we want ‘em! TBA wants your old tees!
Don’t let those stained or distressed shirts go to landfill, we wanna take your old tees and bring them back to life.
Through the magic of dye, sewing, and embroidery we will transform those rags and turn them into something new again! Look good and feel good with a new range of up-cycled shirts, powered by your old wardrobe.
Keen? Interested? We’re giving you two options.
You donate your old tees to us and give yourself a pat on the back for helping reduce landfill. The environment and TBA thanks you!
You donate your old tee and we’ll work our magic, upcycle it, and send it back to you! You can choose from our flash sheet of designs for your tee, or if you’re feeling adventurous, we’ll choose a design for you!
OK I’M IN, WHAT NEXT?
1 ~ Give us your tee! You can either post it, drop it off, or wait for one of our monthly collection days (Brisbane & Sunshine Coast only).
2 ~ Once we have your tee, we’ll DM or email you to chat about your design ideas/options!
3 ~ After you choose your design, pay a design fee (price depends on the complexity of the design). We’ll finalise your dream concept and it goes into production - please allow 10-20 business days for this. Remember we are making your dream tee, all good things take time
4 ~ Your upcycled TBA will be shipped to you.
5 ~ Wear it and tell your friends! Even your Nonna will be asking for one.

Dye is unpredictable, which is why it’s so fun! Due to the nature of dye and embroidery, there is a small chance your tee can reject dye, or our embroidery machine jams up. This is unlikely but it’s important to remember accidents happen. If the unforeseen happens whilst creating your dream tee, a full refund will be provided along with a store discount. We thank you for trusting us with your tees and designs, and we’re so excited to see the project roll out!
There are a couple of factors we will be looking at when quoting for your design. Shipping aside we’ve gotta consider the amount of dyed used, how many potential colours, embroidery file complexity the list goes on. You can expect the quote to be between ($35 - $65)
