An Idaho inspired clothing brand | Offering creative apparel since 2011
At BANANA ink, we are passionate about wearing creativity everyday...
We are a local company, based in Boise, that gears their designs to native Idahoans and Idaho enthusiasts. We just wanted to see more clothing made for people who lived in and loved Idaho and decided we'd make our own!
Our downtown Boise and Nampa shops have our entire collection of our Idaho clothing available as well as many other local artists and makers.
We are very picky when it comes to our materials so all BANANA ink tees are printed on combed ringspun cotton or blended tees. All of the items we carry at BANANA ink are designed and/or created by local artists and designers.

Q: WHAT DOES THE IDAHO TREE-GUN DESIGN MEAN?
A: When I designed it, my intention was a creative/funny design inspired by Idaho and the tree represents all the great wilderness in Idaho. One of my favorite interpretations I heard from a customer is "Idaho is loaded with trees". Can't think of a simpler way to describe the design for me.The Idaho Gun-Tree design is open to interpretation by its fans and wearers but the design is NOT politically based or negatively rooted, it was made to be funny and fun. Other than that each of our experiences of Idaho are different so we may all see it a little differently. Let us know if you have any further questions about this design or any other products we carry.
Q: WHERE IS YOUR DOWNTOWN SHOP IN BOISE?

Chinook salmon (Onchorhynchus tshawytscha) are anadromous fish, meaning they migrate to the ocean as smolts and return to fresh water to spawn and then die.
This native fish is one of the most fascinating fishes found in Idaho, its body is silver to olive-colored. The inside of its mouth is unique; it's black. They range from 18-40 inches and can attain a weight of 45 pounds.
Idaho's chinook salmon are often loosely separated into three groups - Spring, Summer and Fall, based on their size and ocean life history.
Chinook return to their spawning habitat in the fall after one to three years at sea. The female builds a large redd (nest) that may be six feet in diameter and one to four feet deep.
They lay between 4,500 and 10,000 eggs. When spawning is completed, both male and female die. The eggs hatch in the spring and the juvenile fish live the next year in fresh water, except for fall chinook that only live a couple months in fresh water before leaving for the ocean.
Young fish in fresh water eat both aquatic and terrestrial insects. They turn to a diet of fish once they reach salt water. Adults returning to spawn do not eat; they live off their fat reserves.
