Into the Wild by Graeme Stevenson


Into The Wild is a collection of wildlife art by Australian artist Graeme Stevenson.  Born in New South Wales, Australia, Graeme Stevenson's passion for art began at an early age. He took his first art lessons at 11.

His artwork can be found on t-shirts, tote bags, mugs and hats by The Mountain® all available at Tam's Treasures.   His use of splashes of colour along side the portraits of animals give the images a new dimension that pop off the apparel.

Some of the t-shirt designs included Painted Cheetahs, Elephants, Wolves and Rhinos. The t-shirts are available in three colours: teal, black and grey.  These t-shirts are available in tri-blend which is a combination of 25% cotton, 25% rayon and 50% polyester giving these tees durable comfort.

Protect - Endangered Species Collection by The Mountain®


We love animals and protecting endangered animals is a no brainer. One way we do this is by selling t-shirts, mugs and giftware from the Protect Collection by The Mountain® that have powerful images and messages. Part of the proceeds from each sale goes to organizations that are doing everything possible to save these animals.

The Mountain® donates part of each sale to African Wildlife Foundation, Panthera, Whale and Dolphin Conservation, Sea Turtle Conservancy, Polar Bears International, Honeybee Conservancy and Pandas International.



You'll find beautiful t-shirts and Tam's that have matching mugs, hats, totebags for your favourite endangered animal.

Each powerful image is set against either a black or white background for impact. The messages are clear and by purchasing and wearing something from the Protect collection you're helping to raise awareness to the plight of endangered animals.

Clouded Leopard

We carry the Clouded Leopard t-shirt by The Mountain® from their Smithsonian Collection. This blog however; isn't just about the t-shirt it's about the Clouded Leopard itself. 

Often we see on social media organizations trying to save endangered species and while this is important, sometimes less attention is focused on animals that are considered vulnerable. 

The Clouded Leopard falls into the vulnerable category as there are fewer than 10,000 in the wild. Unfortunately, their numbers are dwindling because of poachers and the loss of habitat. You see Clouded Leopards love trees and spend most of their solitary life in trees. With forests and jungles being decimated at an increasingly rapid  pace, these beautiful big cats are dwindling in numbers.

It's important to be pro-active when it comes to conservation and the first thing we can do is making sure people are educated on the topic. We can't help prevent, what we don't know or understand.  It's all well and good to post a picture of an adorable Clouded Leopard on Facebook. But we need to also be prepared to do all we can to make sure these animals don't end up endangered or worse extinct. 

The Smithsonian Zoo and Museum in the US have conservation facilities throughout the world and they are doing what they can to make sure these beautiful creatures live and thrive.  One thing we can all do is make sure we donate or purchase products that will directly benefit the conservation of animals.  

The Mountain® has teamed up with the Smithsonian Institute to create beautiful t-shirts. 
The tees capture images of animals found at the Smithsonian Zoo and are part of their conservation program. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these t-shirts go to the Smithsonian for this purpose.

Clouded leopards dwell in the cloud forests of Southeast Asian and spend most of their time in trees. They are neither a true great cat or true small cat, because they cannot roar or purr. They make growling, hissing and chuffing noises.

They are also not a "type" of leopard but rather a separate species of wild cat. They have specialised ankle bones that allow them to climb face first down trees. Their coat is brown or grey covered with stripes, spots and botches. The Clouded Leopard also has short legs and a long tail.

For more information on the Clouded Leopard we suggest visiting the Smithsonian website for a more detailed look at these beautiful animals.  If you would like to buy a Clouded Leopard t-shirt visit our site and hurry this design has been discontinued.

We spend over 1/3 of our lives in bed so why not be comfortable and have fun doing it?  Lazy One® sleepwear is great for lounging around in. Come home from work put on your favourite pair of pj bottoms and either a matching tank or tee and you're good to go.

It also makes gift giving for birthdays and Christmas fun too when you can make up a hamper of Lazy One® products.
