These Native American inspired prints are really growing on me. This crewneck sweatshirt is my favorite piece from Benny Gold‘s Valencia Collection Native Series. It looks perfect for chilly summer nights sitting around a campfire or on the beach.

There are two recurring trends that I really admire in Benny Gold’s collections. It’s genius the way he incorporates the paper plane icon into all of his pieces, creating real brand cohesion. Secondly, almost every collection has at least two corresponding pieces, such as a crewneck sweatshirt and hat, or a t shirt and jacket. The Valencia Collection Native Series contains a wide selection of coordinating pieces available in the same print and color – a 5 panel hat, t shirt, crewneck sweatshirt, socks, and even a cruiser skate deck. There are even three different color options for all these items, with the exception of the crewneck sweatshirt. You can purchase them in Benny Gold’s online shop, or at a local dealer. Just a head’s up, though – these are selling out fast!

Artwork has become more affordable and accessible as artists have been able to expand their presence on the internet. Small prints are usually available in 4″x6″ and 5″x7″ sizes, and inexpensive frames for these sizes are available almost anywhere.

I’m really attracted to the colors in this Straw Castle block print. It is available in their Etsy store for only $4.99, but act quick as it is limited to just 30 prints. Finish it off with a dark brown or natural wood frame, which you can probably find for less than $10. If you have a few minutes to kill, you can see more of Derrick Castle’s portfolio at strawcastle.com, and works for sale in his Bigcartel and Etsy shops.

Native American prints can either make you look trendy, or like you’re ready to handle some livestock. Tribe offers up modern geometric designs that don’t look so forced. They’ve got a sale going on right now that brings all t shirts down to $20. Join the Tribe.
