Life is good® Clothing

In 1989, brothers Bert and John Jacobs designed a tee shirt and printed some up, despite not knowing a thing about the clothing business. For five years they traveled the East Coast trying to establish the Life is good® clothing brand. It didn't happen, at least not until they found their mascot, a simple stick-like figure named Jake who had an ear-to-ear grin. People fell in love with Jake and his simple message of optimism, and Life is good® tee shirts featuring him became instant bestsellers. And the rest, as they say, is history. When you wear Life is good® clothing, you know it speaks the honest truth – Life is good® shirts are so soft and comfortable, that life really is good, if not great! With their short but humorous slogans, our popular Life is good® clothes are certain to make you smile.

The Olla: A Brief History

Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.


When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.


The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.


Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!

How it Works:


Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
