About this project
No more worrying about your t-shirt's front and back, inside or outside!
The Uztzu Q-Shirt can be worn 4 different ways, so you can choose which works best for any occasion. With its multiple combinations, you can now optimise your wardrobe space and enhance your look on your travels.
Uztzu has filed 2 international patents and is the only brand in the world that produces Quad-Face T-Shirts.
100% Made in Italy with fully recycled fabric, the Single Layer technology makes your Q-Shirt softer and lighter than any t-shirt you've worn before.
Sweat? No longer a problem! The Stay-Dry and Hydrophilic NANO-technologies keep your skin dry throughout the day and the Anti-Bacterial fabric is tested to be smell proof. With the Uztzu Q-Shirt, you will feel cleaner for longer.
1 Quad-Face T-shirt is worth 4 common T-shirts. When you pack 4 UZTZU Q-Shirts, you are guaranteed to have a choice of 16 styles in a fraction of the space.
I filed my Invention Patent Request in June 2015 and now it has been approved and registered.
The International Patent's Application deadline is May 2017.
I need your support to register it throughout the world, so only together we can bring the versatility of the Uztzu Q-Shirts to as many countries as possible.
Please, support the project!
I am an Italian Fashion Designer., so the production line is entirely based in Italy. I draw on the rich fabric of Italian entrepreneurship. I design, manufacture and print everything right here in Italy, always in collaboration with ethically responsible suppliers.
The best validation? I have been producing and selling Q-Shirts to high-end stores since 2016 at a retail price of approximately $120 per Tee.
My Formula is a mixture of attention to detail and artisan care, but at an industrial scale.
That’s why I like to think of the Q-Shirts as a unique piece. The irregular appearance, the uneven details, the only partly printed areas make your Uztzu unique and something you can be proud of.
Uztzu Q-Shirts are made of a single layer of 160 gram/m2 fabric to keep the lightness of traditional T-shirts. The technology and technique used for printing keep the fabric soft and highly breathable.
The water-based inks I use are top quality and certified non-allergic.
The fabric is also given an anti-bacterial treatment that eliminates smells and keeps your skin free of bacterial agents, even in extreme conditions.
The symmetrical neck cut is unique and the result of a very careful trial and error.
Not just original, but also functional, you can wear it as you wish because for Uztzu there’s no inside out or back to front. Any which way is right and the choice is all yours!
I decided to use the T.Z.U. Sewing Technique so that there is always a visible stitch at the side. I chose a stitch that’s secure, nice to look at and soft to the touch. This makes your Q-Shirt unique and comfortable, but still with a look that’s hip and street to propagate urban style.

We are shipping the Q-Shirts all over the world so it is impossible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and GST tax for each location through Kickstarter. You will therefore need to cover any duty and tax applicable in your country upon the receipt of your order.

We don't do returns for crowdfunding products. However, if you receive the wrong size or wrong product, our exchange policy lasts 30 days from when your product arrived, according to the tracking # we sent you. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you an exchange. To be eligible for an exchange, your item must be unused, free from dirt, dust or damage and in the same package and condition that you received it. If your return passes our inspection, you may receive an exchange.
If our shipping carrier attempts delivery to you and you don't get it because you’re not there, wrong address, moved without notifying us, and the package is returned back to our warehouse, we will not be able to send you another product.
