Trigger Issues - T-Shirts

Regular price $10 now $5

Can't imagine the world without them? Everyone wears T-shirts old/young, black/white, women/men, cool/uncool... First T-shirts (so-called because of their shape) came from the US. After the Second World War they were worn without a shirt and later they became popularized by Marlon Brando and James Dean on TV. They shocked some people, but by 1955 they had become acceptable. Today they are the ultimate apparel and with so many branding, colour and style choices you can pick what suits you. But too many are produced by sweatshop labour, from cotton doused with pesticides that kills people and the environment. Now the trade justice movement seeks fair trade for cotton producers.
