The PORPITA T-Shirt is a simple summery piece made from thin and airy, beautifully printed cotton. The pattern on the fabric resembles the angelic marine organism porpita porpita or “blue button”. Although it is superficially similar to a jellyfish, each apparent individual is actually a colony of hydrozoan polyps.

 

The blue button lives on the surface of the sea and consists of two main parts: a blue, thin, transparent circular disc, to which is attached the hydroid ‘colonial’ body, resembling tentacles like those of the jellyfish. The colony consists of many small tentacles that have bead-like structures packed with nematocysts. It belongs to the ‘blue fleet’, a collection of different species that are found floating on the surface in the open ocean, transported by winds and currents. It feeds on micro plankton caught by the tentacles. The disc is made of keratin and acts as a floating substrate for the polyp colony underneath.
