The Open House Festival T-shirt features an illustration by architectural designer Harry Tindale depicting a slice of London's urban life. The illustration was commissioned for the festival's official poster following an open competition and can be found at participating buildings and on the London Underground network.
The illustration represents many of the themes championed through the festival this year – historic and contemporary architecture, the relationship between food and the city, and much more.
Please note these t-shirts are on the small side for their stated sizes. We would recommend ordering a size up if you prefer a looser fit.

The t-shirts are screen printed in London using non-harmful inks. The t-shirt base is made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton by Stanley/Stella, who are accredited by the Fair Wear Foundation, working to improve conditions for workers in garment factories.
100% of proceeds from sales of this T-shirt go towards supporting Open City to create the free Open House Festival each year and deliver a year-round programme of educational workshops for children and young people from under-represented backgrounds.
