27 Nov Graphic Tees Galore: Texas True Threads
Regardless of their style type, be it western, southern sophisticate, or West Coast chill, every boutique knows the power of a good graphic tee. They’re worn by customers of all ages and fly off the shelves as soon as they’re stocked. For these reasons, we’re so excited to introduce our boutique owners to one of our favorite graphic tee brands, Texas True Threads!
Texas True Threads is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Chad and Mendy Riggins. The two, along with their Texas True Threads team, create some of the most fashionable graphic tees on the market. Founded in 2015, Texas True Threads is based out of Spearman, Texas.
We got to know Mendy Riggins, and the Texas True Thread brand a little bit better, and are so excited about their interview!
