Ulbricht Defense Fund Gets Help from T-Shirt Company
Editor’s note: This article has been modified to change a typo. Previously, in the first paragraph, the article stated that 90% of every sale went to Ulbricht’s defense fund, when it is 10% of every sale.
Bitcoin apparel company All Things Bitcoin now sells a Silk Road t-shirt, and 10% of every sale goes to the Ross Ulbricht Legal Defense Fund. This fund is hosted by the Free Ross Campaign, led by Ross’ mother Lyn Ulbricht. Currently, the Free Ross Campaign is raising money for Ross’ appeal fund.

All Things Bitcoin Helping Ross Ulbricht
Priced at $19.99 USD, the Silk Road shirt has a simplistic design, featuring the original Silk Road logo set against a solid color background. The shirt comes in a variety of colors and sizes. The men’s version of the tee is available in creme, purple and light blue, and sizes range from X-Small to XXX-Large. The women’s shirt comes in fuchsia, mint, purple and light blue, ranging from Small to XX-Large.
In the men’s section, there is a “silhouette” version of the Silk Road tee, featuring a silhouetted rendition of the original Silk Road logo. Also priced at $19.99, this shirt is available in purple, navy and black, from sizes X-Small to XXX-large.
The Silk Road t-shirts, as well as all clothing items sold by All Things Bitcoin, are “designed on American Apparel.” Therefore, the company claims that each item comes with American Apparel quality, which includes:
- Double stitched
- Standard fit
- Direct-to-garment (DTG) printing
- 100% Cotton
- Sweatshop free
The company also sells a Silk Road poster for $19.99. The 12” x 18” poster displays the same Silk Road logo as the t-shirts, set against a grey background. Just as with the t-shirts, 10% of every poster sale goes to the Ros Ulbricht Legal Defense Fund.
We donate 10% of every sale to the Ross Ulbricht Legal Defense Fund, in bitcoin. Every donation helps. If you would like to donate directly to his fund, or would like to find out more, you can do so at FreeRoss.org.
All Things Bitcoin offers a variety of t-shirts and accessories in addition to its Silk Road merchandise. One of the more interesting items available on the website is a “Will work for Bitcoin” shirt. In the foreground of this solid grey graphic-tee is an image of a brown cardboard sign that reads, “Will Work For Bitcoin.” There is a QR code in the bottom-right corner of the sign, which the company can link to a public bitcoin address specified by customers in their orders. This shirt goes for $29.99, but there is a $19.99 version that does not have the QR code.
