The Mountain Say...
In Native American tradition, the link between humans and animals has taken on many symbols where the characteristics of different creatures help us understand how we live and interact in our own lives. From The Mountain’s Native American tee shirt collection comes the Indian Collage T-Shirt—an inspired design that beautifully interprets the interconnectedness of a world where species exist in harmony together, providing guidance and support for one another. Let this beautiful shirt be a symbol for you.

How Are The Mountain T-Shirts Made?
- Each t-shirt begins as a white garment made from 100% Natural USA Cotton (this includes the threading to hold it all together)
- Next, using fiber reactive organic dyes these are then coloured. The Mountain currently use over 800 colours over their range!
- Once the dyeing process has finished, each t-shirt is then printed with environmentally friendly water-based inks (most screen printers currently use solvent based inks made of petroleum, a type of plastic).
- When the dyeing and printing process is finished, the colour is then removed from the waste water that has been created, and oxygen is pumped in to this (this enriches the water).
- The water is then sent to their local treatment plant where it works harmoniously with the micro-organisms used to recycle water.
When you first receive your Mountain T-Shirt we recommend washing in cold water alone or with like colours. Since your shirt was hand-dyed it will continue to bleed some excess colour for the first few washes. It is safe to use normal detergent, just make sure to avoid bleach. Your Mountain T-Shirt should be dried either in a tumble dryer on low or flat, not hung as the weight of the water will cause the cotton to stretch.
It is recommended to wash inside out and on its own for the first few washes to prevent the colour bleeding into your other items. We would also recommend ironing only the inside of the T-Shirt. The dying process means the designs do not stretch or crack. All The Mountain products are pre-shrunk before printing, so long as proper washing and care instructions are followed, your Tee should not shrink.
More About the Symbol of the Wolf
Wolves howl at the moon. Howling can be seen as finding our own true inner voice, a voice that is untamed by what society thinks. It is a voice that is entirely natural. Wolf is actually quite a feminine symbol. It symbolises a wild, instinctive and passionate nature that is natural. Stories are common in the past of some lone wolves almost magically outwitting hunters. Some of these wolves even became known by specific names because of their notoriety. To wear or have near you the symbol of wolf is to howl your deeper nature into existence. As humans we become so conditioned by what society and other people expect of us we can lose touch with our wild nature that wants to be let lose. Wolf helps us connect to this our inner power. The moon represents this deeper hidden side and the howling is the call to bring this part of us forward.
More About the Symbol of the Eagle
The eagle is held sacred by many traditions, but especially so in the Native American tradition. The eagle flies high, symbolically close to spirit, and its cry is like a high-pitched screech, calling to spirit for recognition. The eagle teaches us to live our lives on earth while remaining connected to the spirit realms. It teaches us to follow our true path - that which is really meant to be happening in our life for the greater good. So in this way the eagle is connected to courage - the ability to follow what is right, and to confront our fears, as that is how we change to become better and happier people. Eagle can see far from his high-flying position, so symbolically relates to seeing the bigger picture, not getting involved in things that aren't important.
