HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Subtle Dust started with Tressa's love for thrifting Disney sweatshirts and tees. Her Disney loving friends would say, “Where did you get that?!” she was excited to say it was thrifted but also sad because she knew they couldn’t have the tee themselves. She was always on the hunt for some rad Disney tees for Disneyland trips, but it wasn’t until she started thrifting that she realized the Disney style she loved was 70s, 80s, and 90s. In August 2020, during the never ending pandemic days, she finally had the idea to start her own tee company. But they wouldn’t be normal cheesy Disney tees, they were going to be high quality, comfy, professionally designed, rad tees.
