The funds from this edition will go directly to supporting Chicago Artist Club’s music endeavors including independently releasing their first album, tour, and creating more affordable art works. 

Chicago Artist Club is a collaborative experimental pop group and artist’s collective founded by Kira Scerbin (Potato Tunesy) and Isabelle Frances McGuire (Dirty Music).Their collaborative efforts are seductive, psychedelic and self aware. Originally an improvisational project that relied on the trope of the drunken female fool, they do not shy from experimentation and clearly acknowledge genre as a costume and pop as a successful funnel for the critical and the avant garde. Potato and Dirty have garnered cult followings with their individual artistic practices. Although a relatively young collaborative project it’s clear their aesthetic sensibilities have melded perfectly together to birth a uniquely slutty toddleresque pop music savant while simultaneously creating an eerie portrait of Chicago's wildly unique arts and music scene.

The aim of their collective is to create artworks that can be bought and sold at reasonable, realistic, and ethical prices. It is intentionally counter to the terrible model of art galleries, where only the extremely wealthy can afford to buy art. Art should be accessible to anyone who wants it.

Shirts are approx. 7 oz. and fit in a 12x9 Manila envelope.

FAQ

What is a tabi?

The tabi is a style of footwear with a split toe that dates back to 15th Century Japan when it was originally designed as a split-toe cotton sock to be worn with geta, or wooden sandals. Our tabi is an eco-friendly take on a time-honored classic, with all the comfort and style of a modern shoe.

Do I have to wear socks with my tabi?

We designed our tabi sneakers so that they could be worn barefoot. Our insole and lining materials have anti-microbial properties, and the insole is removable so you can throw the shoe (minus insole) into the wash to freshen them up. For those of you that cannot go without socks, we make those!

How do I take care of my tabis?

It’s super easy - just throw 'em in the washing machine! We made sure that the insole is removable and hand washable as a first line of defense when it's time to clean your tabis. After you’ve removed your insole, place your whole shoe in the wash - treat it like a sweater. Wash on delicate cycle in cold water. We recommend a gentle detergent and tumble dry on low or air dry in a warm, sunny place.

What are your tabis made out of?

The vegan tabis are either knit from recycled water bottles or polyester and elastic. The silk tabis are made with a blend of recycled polyester, viscose, and silk yarn. All of our tabis are 3d-knit.

Returns or exchanges are accepted within 30 days of delivery in a like-new, unworn condition. Please try on your tabis indoors on smooth clean surfaces.
