What's with the name?
"Little Bay Root" is a play on words. Former U.S. President George Bush always seemed to encounter protestors when he visited Portland (go figure). His staffers started referring to our city as "Little Beirut." We consider that nickname a compliment to all the independent thinkers out here. Add a creative tweak and we now proudly welcome you to Little Bay Root🌲
We don’t just make Northwest T-shirts. We make statements.
In the Pacific Northwest, we’re all about craft beers, meandering bookstores and the occasional naked bike ride. But that’s just the icing on the lavender-hazelnut cupcake. Way down in our coffee-fueled hearts burns an independent spirit that we at Little Bay Root want everyone to share.
Since our first tees flew off the shelves in 2004, we’ve put our passion for all things Northwest into creative designs that speak to the individuals that live here. You have to be a special gal to wear a bigfoot-themed tee!
These aren’t gift-shop souvenirs you regret the moment you unpack them. We offer locally made, ridiculously comfy shirts and accessories that the folks back home are going to fight over. (Be sure to squirrel away your own stash!)
There’s a reason Made in Oregon® stores have dubbed Little Bay Root tees their #1 top sellers.
Got a big, hairy obsession with Bigfoot? Transfixed by the Seattle skyline? Fan-girling over Portland’s award-winning Rose Gardens? Find what speaks to you here and stand out from the crowd. Little Bay Root celebrates original thinkers.
You’ll see that message in everything we create.
Welcome to our Northwest.
