(NECN: Anya Huneke, Burlington, VT) - A lot of New Englanders have pride in where they live and they are not afraid to show it. Now, thanks to a new T-shirt design, you have a new way to demonstrate your hometown pride!

Before the days of texting, e-mail, Twitter, and Facebook -- a good old-fashioned telephone was the best way to communicate with each other.

Three little numbers, otherwise known as an area code, no longer limit or define us in quite the same way, but talk to Becky Foley and Melissa McCray and they'll tell you an area code still carries a lot of meaning.

They have founded a company on that magic -- called "TophDaddy Designs." They are both University of Vermont graduates, who grew up and now live in Massachusetts. They are designing and selling clothing using area codes as art.


They say it is about fashion, but also social networking.

They say it can connect you to people from your area, or from your past, wherever that may be.
