About the artwork

A new and exclusive organic sweatshirt by British artist Scott King. Screen printed in Cornwall, this unisex medium fit brushed sweatshirt is made from 85% organic ring-spun combed cotton, 15% recycled polyester and has a crew neck finish. The word nostalgia is learned formation of a Greek compound, consisting of nostos, meaning 'homecoming', a Homeric word and algos, meaning 'pain' or 'ache' and was coined by a 17th century medical student to describe the anxieties displayed by Swiss mercenaries fighting away.
