About Us

Welcome to Black Lantern! We are a small, handmade company based in Colorado with a passion for graphic design, an obsession with screen printing and a deep connection with the wilderness.

Kevin and Ginny Davis founded the studio in 2011 to create unique, hand-printed clothing that could bring the spirit of the outdoors into urban living.

The company soon started printing designs on a wider range of clothing, glassware, messenger bags, totes and plenty more. But we think we’ve remained loyal to our first principles. There are no automatic presses here – every T-shirt is still screen printed by us with original designs, on US-made clothing designed to survive the outdoors. If this means we stay small, then that’s fine.

Starting a business isn’t easy, but it’s not “all work and no play” either; over the past five years, we’ve become ever more dedicated to trekking and camping. Our new Black Lantern brand was born from memories of nights sitting around the campfire. To us, a lantern represents a hardier lifestyle, but also that feeling of warmth and safety at the end of a hard day’s trek, sitting around a fire and pondering the mysteries of the universe over a hot chocolate - or something stronger!

No matter where or how you live, nature is for everyone and the wilderness still has a strong influence on the American character. That’s why we work with The Wilderness Society to help preserve our outdoor spaces for future generations. We donate a portion of every single sale to help protect the lands we love and to keep them public.

Our adventure still stretches ahead of us and we don’t know where the trail leads, but we intend to enjoy many starry nights on the way, sharing the glow from Black Lantern. We hope you’ll feel the same way, wherever you wear our designs.
