But it was...an ending.

You may recall from our blog post in April that all current WoT licensees' contracts are coming to an end. If you didn't get a chance to read it, please do so as it really conveys our feelings toward serving the WoT community for the past eight years. Sadly, our time selling officially licensed merchandise draws to a close as of October 28.

What does this mean for you? Well...it means that as of that date there will be no more official merchandise based on the series. HOWEVER, you can check out our selection - currently 10% off! - and buy what you want NOW. We've just consolidated our convention stock and online stock, so a few things that were previously out of stock have shown up for sale again!

We have lots of art still available, as well as some collectible items and even some t-shirts left. Check it out now!

Thank you for eight years!

Fellow WoT Fans,

We write today to tell you something many of you may have already guessed. After eight wonderful years creating and selling official Wheel of Time merchandise, our journey now comes to an end. Our hearts are heavy as we share this news, but also full from the love and loyalty you have shown us over the past years. Ta’veren Tees is run by only four of us, Elaine, Jeffrey, Kiley, and Sophie, and we are all Wheel of Time fans first, business owners second. We have striven always to create products that will represent the series in the best way, to make a shirt or coin or poster that will remind you of your favorite series and bring a smile to your face. We take our jobs as stewards of this brand, of Robert Jordan’s world, seriously, because it is a world we love deeply. If something you purchased from Ta’veren Tees has brought you closer to Robert Jordan, Rand, Mat, Moiraine, and fellow readers of the series, then we feel we have done our jobs.

Of course we know there are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel, but this is an ending. As of April 28th 2019, we will no longer be allowed to create new products, though all of our remaining inventory will be available on our site for a time. That means you’ll want to buy anything you’ve been eyeing, as our stock will not be replaced and soon all official Wheel of Time merchandise will be rare, limited items. Will there be sales later? Yes. But the items and sizes you want may be gone, so we suggest grabbing anything you really want sooner rather than later.

We cannot begin to express how much Ta’veren Tees has brought to our lives. It has been one of the greatest honors to be involved with The Wheel of Time in this way, to work with Harriet, Maria, and Alan to keep Robert Jordan’s memory alive. To interact so often with fellow fans who love WoT and like to pause just to geek out with us. When we go to JordanCon, we see an ocean of fans wearing Ta’veren Tee shirts and know there are many, many more of you out there, and that is a comforting, gratifying thought. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

May the Light shine on all of you, 
Ta’veren Tees

DUTY AND DEATH: NEW SHIRT RELEASE WITH ART BY PAUL BIELACZYC

Ta’veren Tees is proud to have worked once more with officially licensed WoT artist Paul Bielaczyc on a new shirt, “Duty and Death,” now available for preorder at www.TaverenTees.com/dutyanddeath.

Art by Paul Bielaczyc of Aradani Studios



The 100% cotton tee can be preordered for a special price of $23 (regular $26) and will ship by March 7. All items ordered at the same time will be held and shipped with the new tee.

The art on the shirt shows a distant mountain – perhaps it is Shayol Ghul – with a heron marked blade in the foreground and a crane in flight, all framed by feathers. The concept alludes, of course, to the quote “Duty is heavier than a mountain, death lighter than a feather.” Though Rand takes up this mantra in the series, it is said to him by Lan Mandragoran and the sentiment fits both men’s stories, two journeys of burden and sacrifice.

Fact: In the real world, this phrase is very near one that is part of the first precept of the Imperial Rescript to Japanese Soldiers and Sailors.

To preorder your shirt, head over to www.TaverenTees.com/dutyanddeath now!
