Bella + Canvas Tri-Blend
The legend of the Flaanimal name dates back to 2015 when we were riding bikes in Belgium during Classics Holy Week. We were there to watch the Ronde Van Vlaanderen, the legendary Tour Of Flanders cobbled classic. While out riding we noticed a strangely awesome variety of animals out in the yards of the local houses and farms. We saw Osterich, Emu, Kangaroo, Chickens, Goats, Laama, Alpaca, Ducks, Goats, Donkeys, Horses, and everything in between. We started calling these animals Flanders + Animals = Flaanimals. Thus the Flaanimal was born. When creating this tee shirt design we worked with French designer Denis Carrier to bring a bit of European flair to the design. We imagined the most classic of Belgian foods: The waffle – drizzled in whipped cream and blueberries. Right in the middle of it all we wanted a Flaanimal smack dab in the mix, almost riding the waffle itself as if the waffles were cobbles. We gave the idea to Denis, he sent back this delicious design. We’ve printed up a limited run of the shirts on Bella + Canvas tri-blend tees for your immediate consumption. Go heavy on the whip, you’ve earned it.
