Wearable art by Urban Mosaics is a medium of organic cotton t-shirts that celebrate and promote natural hair, beauty, self-esteem, love, nurturing and natural hair pride for women, men and children everywhere.

"We're really excited about the release of our two new shirts just in time for the Holidays", said Stacy Edey, owner and founder of Urban Mosaics. "The two new designs are printed on a black T-Shirt canvas of 100% organic cotton offering fun, chic and empowering messages about curly and natural hair. That women with textured hair, 'do it better' jovialy, said Edey. She also stated additional t-shirts on Urban Mosaics website will be placed on sale, "It's a great time to treat yourself to a holiday gift."

Renowned sneaker artist Van Monroe of Cleveland, Ohio created five of the nine designs currently in Urban Mosaics' inventory. Monroe is an extremely talented artist, his artwork is nationally recognized and has been added to the Smithsonian Museum’s collection.

He has created artwork for President Barack Obama, Spike Lee, Will.I.Am, Queen Latifah, and countless other celebrities. Monroe worked with 20th Century Fox in promoting their summer blockbuster movie Wolverine with his sneaker designs. Monroe recently collaborated with Fox again to promote the final installment to their popular animated feature Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.

Urban Mosaics' Holiday Haul for newly released t-shirt designs, "Natural Girls Do It Better" and "Curly Girls Do It Better" runs from 10:00 p.m Wednesday before Christmas to 10:00 p.m. Wednesday following Christmas day. That's Dec. 19-26. The new release sale offers shirts at a reduced holiday sale price of $19.99. After the Holiday Release Week, the new launch Tee and all other wearable art t-shirts will return to regular price.

Edey said it not coincidental that the company is eco-friendly. The designs are printed on 100 percent organic cotton shirts and are shipped to customers in recyclable mailing tubes.

"We only support the use of 100% organic cotton because it's symbolic of accepting curly, kinky, wavy and tighly coily hair the way it grows from our scalp, thus being organic," Edey said. "Not chemically processed to make it straight. Therefore, naturally textured hair is organic."

Edey said, "We really pride ourselves in supporting efforts of sustainability. And this just makes sense of Urban Mosaics. What you wear from our company is just as natural as the hair you grow. Our shirts are like a second skin.

A portion of the proceeds is donated to Stivers School for the Arts, as Edey encourages women of all ages and ethnicities to believe in themselves and believe that they can impact positive change in the world through their passions and views.

Founded in March 2011, Urban Mosaics is expressionist, wearable art intended to express meaning or emotional experience rather than the physical reality of Afro-textured hair. Urban Mosaics is high-quality clothing and accessory imagery created from a subjective perspective to evoke moods or ideas regarding natural hair.
