The Nutria Rodeo
Nutria, marshland-dwelling, semi-aquatic rodents with an appetite for delta vegetation, were manually introduced to the Gulf Coast in 1938 by fur farmers in hopes of using the pelt to strike it rich in the fur trade. Much like our friend Bob Sacamano and his Russian hats.
As crazy as a Nutria Rodeo was, it was essential to the preservation of our local ecosystem. It is also essential to preserve our cultural ecosystem; all things, past and present; heritage and historic landmarks. Taking inspiration from the colorful sights and characters that make up our great city, our shirts are inside jokes, symbols of community pride, and ultimately a celebration of our way of life on the Gulf Coast, 300 years in the making.
