Our company, 1836 Finery & Frock, markets trendy, edgy (but not the least bit touristy) t-shirts to Texas women.
The idea of 1836, came from our love of authentic Texas culture and our inability to find statement t-shirts that truly fit our unique state pride. 1836 Finery & Frock is inspired by the hardiness and beauty of Texas and its people. Every serious Texan knows that 1836 is a date that lives on in Texas history. It's our present and our past. Texas is diverse but unified in a beautiful way, and our purpose at 1836 Finery & Frock is to offer quality tees that speak to Texan hearts, especially Texas women.
As the company owners, we are identical twin sisters and native Texans. We grew up surrounded by the people and places that make this state great and only now, as adults, realize how much it has ingrained our hearts. We spent summers floating the Blanco River, took trips to Del Rio crossing the border into Mexico and sailing on Lake Amistad. We spent sunsets on the beach in Port Aransas and saw the night sky in Big Bend. We paid homage to West, TX for a kolache stop and climbed up Enchanted Rock! Texas is home and we want to share it with others. It’s how we live, it’s what we think, it’s what we love.
