Heartfelt, from the inside-out

A sentiment doesn’t have to be broadcast for it to be heartfelt. That’s the whole idea behind HeartThreads, an inspirational line of shirts that have a special message of love printed on the inside of each shirt, next to the wearer’s heart. The creator of HeartThreads is Scott Wilson, who came up with the idea after a friend’s daughter passed away and he wanted to do something to express his love and support. He printed a picture of his friend’s daughter on the inside of a shirt, so her family could take comfort in having her close to their hearts. Seeing the joy it brought the family, Scott founded HeartThreads. His goal is to create inspiring art from the inside-out, and to promote a positive attitude and inner peace. Today we’re featuring the company’s “Live, Love, Laugh” design, which reminds us to “live with purpose, love unconditionally, laugh out loud. I’ll enjoy life every step of the way…” We heard about HeartThreads from Daily Grommet friend Carol Knight, who says the shirts’ affirmations have helped her to make a spiritual connection without shouting it out to the whole world. “Sometimes you just don’t feel like wearing your ‘heart on your sleeve,’ so what better way than to have a shirt that empowers you, however that may be, and not have to broadcast it to the moms at school or the grocery store cashier?” Carol says. We couldn’t agree more. There’s something powerful about carrying a secret sentiment close to your heart. You know it’s there — and that’s what really matters.

    My name is Scott Wilson; I’m a clothing designer and creator of HeartThreads Clothing. I would like to introduce all of you to an amazing line of T-shirts that not only make you look and feel great, but is actually a tool to help people develop a stronger, more positive mental attitude. How we do this is by printing thoughtful, inspiration messages - like the Live, Love, Laugh on the inside of the shirts above the heart.

    The concept was conceived while searching for a way to show my love and support to a very dear friend Rick who lost his daughter. While printing his company's work shirts, I took a portrait picture of his daughter and printed on the inside of the shirt above the heart. The reaction from Rick and his wife Barb was so heartfelt it inspired me to create shirts and messages for other friends. Seeing the change the shirts were making for people, I knew the world needed this. So here it is. I want to thank you and the cool folks at Daily Grommet for allowing me to share my passion and mission.

    Your story of how this product came to be is very touching. These inspirational t-shirts really show how much you care.

    I'm pulling this information over from the details tab so that it is in both places:



    • The personal message of the featured shirt is Live, Love, Laugh...Words to live by. Live with purpose, love unconditionally, laugh out loud. I’ll enjoy life every step of the way…

    • Message printed on the inside of the shirt near the heart

    • Made in the USA of the highest-quality, 100% Supima, American grown cotton

    • Colors available are Rapture Rose (short sleeve only) and Lipstick Red (short and long sleeve)

    • Sizes available are S, M, L, XL and XXL. Smaller sizes are fitted and as the sizes get larger, the shirts are straighter for a more comfortable fit



    • Each T-shirt comes beautifully packaged for gifting in a box

    • Each T-shirt is folded inside out with the message showing through the top of the box

    Someone just contacted us to ask about the message inside these shirts - it's the same for all of the sizes and colors, long or short-sleeve. As Katherine says, above, here's what the message is:

    Live, Love, Laugh…Words to live by. Live with purpose, love unconditionally, laugh out loud. I’ll enjoy life every step of the way…
