    T-Shirts

    Alfalfa New York t-shirts reflect the same level of quality we put into our graphic design practice. They are made with only the best materials and the best cuts for a fit and feel you will love.

    Both our men’s cut and our women’s cut have a flattering slim look. Quality construction includes rib collars, reinforced shoulders, side seams, double-needle sleeve and bottom hems, and a tag-free label for comfort.

    The result is the t-shirt that’s destined to become your new best friend!

    T-shirts with perfect cuts and construction

    Alfalfa New York t-shirts are made from 100% Peruvian pima cotton. The pima plant yields cotton with unusually long, silky fibers. It is prized by luxury and up-market brands worldwide for its superb resilience and drape. Not only silky soft, lightweight, and resilient, pima cotton is also strong, durable, and colorfast. It originated in Peru, where the domestication of the pima plant can be traced back to 4200 BC in ancient Ancon.

    Feel the difference when you put on a 100% pima cotton t-shirt from Alfalfa New York.

    Made from Peruvian pima, the world’s best cotton

  • Display Fonts

    Alfalfabet is Rafael Esquer’s original collection of display fonts. It was inspired by the “impossible objects” of Reutersvärd, Escher, and the Penroses.

    From A to Z, the impossible letterforms of Alfalfabet trick the eye with the illusion of 3D shapes that shift perspective in paradoxical ways.

    The Alfalfabet collection contains 2 families and 6 fonts:

  • Alfalfabet Block in light, regular, and bold
  • Alfalfabet Open in light, regular, and bold
