Take-Out Container Patent T-Shirt - Charcoal with White Ink


Project + Patent is a line of graphic t-shirts inspired by original patents of ubiquitous, seemingly ordinary objects.

The Take-Out Container t-shirt is one of our funnest (or is it most fun) shirts. The playful graphic might make you smirk, especially if you love Chinese take-out. If you don't, you can at least appreciate the patent origami-inspired design, originally called the "Paper Pail" by Frederick W. Wilcox. Fun fact: Patented in Chicago on November 13, 1894, the design consists of one piece of cardboard creased and folded into a (virtually) leak-proof container! 

The shirts are all hand silk screened using on 100 percent cotton soft tees. Black shirt with white ink. 

Unisex, S, M, L, XL
See size chart. 
Free domestic shipping $50 or over
