This trendy tee has instantly become a favorite among Quill and Thread customers. This spring design is the perfect way to welcome Persephone back to earth and thank her for the flowers she brings upon her return. Whether you believe she's happy to be back or sad to leave Hades, her arrival helps the world shake off the cold winter - and for that we are eternally grateful to her! 


The story of Persephone's marriage to Hades was the Ancient Greeks' explanation as to why the seasons change. Here's a quick synopsis of the story.


Hades, the god of the Underworld, wanted Persephone to be his bride. She was out in the gardens picking flowers when Hades came in his chariot to take her to the Underworld. Persephone's mother, Demeter (the goddess of agriculture) was so depressed and distraught at Persephone being taken away (or willingly going, in some accounts), that Demeter refused to let the flowers bloom or any agriculture grow while Persephone was gone.


After some time of Demeter's strike, Zeus was getting a lot of pressure from the starving humans and angry gods, so Zeus (who was also Persephone's dad) had to do something to appease Demeter. Zeus declared that Persephone would return to earth for half the year and spend the other half with her husband Hades. (Persephone would spend six months in the Underworld because she ate six pomegranate seeds, which solidified their marriage).


When Persephone returns to earth, she brings with her the beautiful blooms of spring and the agricultural growth of summer. When she returns to Hades/Underworld, the world gets cold again (the autumn and winter) as the floral maiden departs and her mother misses her. 


Asphalt and mauve are both 100% cotton. The ash color is made of 99% cotton and the heather navy is 72% cotton, 48% polyester.
