Thus Green fairy is the english translation of the French expression “la fée verte” for Absinthe, the alcoholic beverage.
Absinthe is perhaps the most misunderstood spirit of them all.
Therefore it has a history of being banned in many countries, it is rumored to be a hallucinogen, and many people are unsure how exactly to drink it. Absinthe was even blamed for Vincent van Gogh chopping his ear off, which is incorrect on so many levels.
However, the fable of the green fairy has captivated us and for this reason we have created our own version of it. Finally for now you can find products with this illustration in our Threadless store.
