Colour: black

[In ADULT sizes!]

The fiercest combination to walk the Earth: a will of steel...and a heart that is willing to be broken. 

Spending their strength and power to defend the smallest and weakest, wearers of the TENACITY Tee know mama-bear love has little to do with biology and everything to do with a willingness to rise up and say, “Not on my watch.”

Available in 2 colours:

  •  BLACK [100% organic GOTS* cotton] 
  • CHARCOAL [60% organic GOTS* cotton blended with 40% recycled polyester] 
  • Tees are sewn by our [WFTO*] fair trade certified partner, Freeset Global, in Kolkata, India.

Living-wage jobs transform AUTHOR clothing purchases into poverty-fighting weapons; reminding kids (and parents) that our daily choices really do have power to change the world.

Our very first ADULT TEE! (But we have a hunch your kids will be begging to borrow it as a night shirt!)

$10 USD from each Tenacity Tee you purchase will be given to Marissa Froese and her family as they celebrate life in the midst of a courageous battle with cancer.  Marissa was an early Author-inspiration by living out her belief that everyday purchases are an opportunity to "love our distant neighbour".

We're using these t-shirts as a way to return the love.

If you haven't already had the pleasure, you can meet the Froese family over on IG @marissa.froese or visit their guesthouse @wyndelin

SIZING: These are unisex t-shirts that we've sized down to be better suited to a Mama Bear fit. (Ex: a MEDIUM Tenacity is a unisex/men's SMALL)

If you're buying for a Papa Bear, please remember to size UP from the size they normally wear.  


    The Global Organic Textile Standard provides assurance that your purchases are writing brighter futures for vulnerable farming families through every step of organic cotton production.

    Cotton-processing workers are paid living-wages sufficient to support their families and are kept safe by high workplace safety standards.

    Water supplies of nearby communities are protected because GOTS manufacturers use only approved low-impact dyes and effective water treatment systems.

    Food sources are protected by organic farming methods. Natural pest deterrents and predators make cotton crops safe enough for families to grow their own vegetables in the very same field.

    Farming families enjoy greater economic security when they are spared from dependency on expensive pesticides required for conventional cotton production.

    The World Fair Trade Organization has been working since 1989 to provide economic opportunity for entrepreneurs, artisans, farmers and innovators in 70 countries around the world.

    WFTO members are committed to respecting the environment by sourcing local, organic and recycled materials, and reducing energy use or using renewable energy where possible.

    While the WFTO sets high business standards in 10 important areas, one of the most notable being a local living-wage; ensuring that, in no more than 48 hours of work per week, a worker receives enough income to cover the basics: food, water, housing, education, health care, transportation, clothing, plus some extra to save for emergencies, house repairs or life events.
