Dioscvri is a women-owned and operated art studio dedicated to creating art pieces in a sustainable fashion. The print’s artwork features symbols of power, savvy intellect, strength, and agility; all concepts which can be linked to the powerful athletes, adventurers, and change-makers who make up the Machines For Freedom community. All tees made from 100-percent organic cotton and manufactured locally in Los Angeles, California.

“The Dioscvri x Machines collab was inspired by the power each and every one of us possesses,” said Jenn Kriske, founder of Machines For Freedom. “Sometimes it shows up loudly and boldly. Other times it manifests with quiet and steady determination. This collaboration with Dioscrvi is the embodiment of the power and strength  I see in the Machines community, and to celebrate that collective power.”

Discvri’s art is inspired by a wide array of topics – from cave drawings to mythological stories, and modern tattoo flash art – then block printed by hand in their studio. The Mystic Feline print was created by block printing the artwork and then digitizing the art for reproduction on tees, caps, water bottles, and scarves.

Kriske describes the artwork; “Since ancient times, felines have represented power, savvy intellect, strength, and agility. All concepts which can be linked to the powerful athletes, adventurers, and change-makers who make up this community.”

The Mystic Felines Collection includes the Mystic Felines Tee in short sleeve (MSRP $68) and long sleeve (MSRP $78), Mystic Felines Cycling Cap ($35), Mystic Felines Handkerchief ($30) and the Mystic Felines Bottle Set ($25).
