Call of the Brave - T-shirt design

Drawn in Bristol members (the illustration collective I am a member of) are collaborating with brand new Call of the Bravea t-shirt company with a difference. The company was set up by Dave M in the aim to highlight the importance of ethical clothing and to raise money for the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund. The fund raises money for the victims and families that are affected by the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh, which Killed over 1,130 people as they worked in appalling conditions to produce garments for high street labels such as Primark, Matalan and Mango. Read more about Dave's story on the website.

"Until recently I was just another tee shirt wearing web designer with general feeling that we should think more about what we consume and how it's made".

How it works:

The shirts are all Fairwear Foundation Certified. The Fair Wear Foundation is an independent, non-profit organisation that works with companies and factories to improve labour conditions for garment workers.

We use experienced local screen printers right here in Bristol who print onto Fairwear Foundation Certified White Organic Cotton Jersey with 90% Reduced Carbon Footprint.

Katharina Nyilas - By-Catch (3 days left to order!)

"This design is inspired by unsustainable fishing practices which creates by-catch, sea creatures which get caught up in the fishing nets of deep sea trawlers which get thrown back into the sea dead".
