FROM VOGUE: Who doesn’t love a great summer tee? And a tee that benefits African schoolchildren with supplies, hot lunches, and teacher salaries? Even better.
In honor of the FIFA 2010 World Cup, Ali Hewson, founder of the environmentally and socially conscious label EDUN, is celebrating efforts in Africa with four inspired T-shirts.
“We asked children living in the Kibera slums of Kenya to draw something that represented Africa. The results were everything from produce in a market to African wildlife.”
These 100 percent–organic-cotton shirts represent EDUN’s belief in the possibilities that lie in Africa.
“The tees are an example of how trade can provide assistance. It’s also exciting for the children to understand that they can directly affect their own education.”
Score your very own for $60 at Barneys New York, starting June 1, as well as at EDUN, from June 8.
