What to get a man for Christmas? Traditional cardigan and slippers? A dressing gown?
Or something a bit more memorable?
I had a conversation with a friend last week about African shirts..she wasn’t sure about their appeal..but I think they’re incredible..
(You’ll certainly never worry about clashing patterns again!)
They’re beyond a natty ensemble, brimmed thick with amusement and verbosity. A joy trigger and a visual conversation with an unpredictability that sits seamlessly next to regular classics.
All the pictures in this post came from the same Company..the African Shirt Company who not only offer shirts at fair prices, they’re set up to help the community that makes them in Kenya.
The aim of the African Shirt Company is to improve the lives of locals living in Kasigau, Kenya by providing them with an alternative way to earn an income.
The Company also supports a reforestation project to promote environmental education and sustainable land management in the area.
Each shirt sold also means money given back to the community to buy small seedlings for the local children which are cared for and eventually planted to maintain and restore the degraded land.
An absolute win win!
..and surely that’s what a Christmas present should really be about?
